    Glacier Bay Eagles Nest Lodge is located in beautiful Gustavus, Alaska (35 miles west of Juneau). Gustavus is known for having the world's best halibut fishing. If you want to catch all five species of salmon or gigantic halibut, Glacier Bay Eagles Nest Lodge is the place for you.

    We are a full service lodge, with the best value in Alaska fishing. We will provide your transportation to/from Gustavus airport, pack your fish (up to two-50 pound boxes), clean your rooms, and provide all your snacks and meals.

    Wildlife is abundant in the Glacier Bay area. You could see black tail deer, moose, eagles, wolves, puffins and grizzly bear and black bear. While fishing you could see minke whales, killer whales, humpback whales, sea lions, sea otters and seals.

    Along with the great accommodations, meals, scenery, hospitality and wildlife, we know that your main reason for coming to Eagles Nest Lodge is TO FISH. The waters around Glacier Bay are rich with fish. King Salmon, silver salmon, chum salmon, sockeye salmon and pink salmon are all caught here. Giant halibut over 400 pounds have been caught. Halibut from 100-300 pounds are caught on a regular basis. Our boats average a 100 pound plus fish per boat per day. Along with the salmon and halibut, are lingcod, rockfish and yellow eye (red snapper).

    For world class halibut and salmon fishing, Glacier Bay Eagles Nest Lodge is truly one of the highest quality and best fishing experiences Alaska has to offer.
