Overview

A&W Big Timber Lodge is located on beautiful Raspberry Island within the Kodiak Island archipelago. Tucked among the giant spruce trees of Raspberry Island, we sit nestled along the ocean. Away from civilization, ‘Kupreanof Strait’ is the closest thing we have to a street address. Experience your dream Alaskan trip at Kodiak’s premier wilderness lodge. Enjoy our expansive 197 acres of privately owned old growth Sitka Spruce in a protected cove with excellent all-day southern exposure.

We are available for fishing adventures on Kodiak Island nearly year-round, accessing fantastic salt-water fishing and fresh water streams during the peak seasons. The lodge’s close proximity to the fishing grounds means more time spent fishing! All the saltwater fishing and outdoor gear (boots and rain gear) is provided for our day trips aboard our boats.

If stream fishing is more your style, we can accommodate your fishing desires during the salmon runs throughout the summer season — the best times varies based on the species you would like to target. Bring your spin or fishing rod and a pair of waders or hip-boots for an adventure of a lifetime! Access to streams is typically by boat, but upon special request, we can coordinate a floatplane flyout from the Lodge.

What makes us unique:

  1. One of the greatest things about our location is our adaptability to the ever changing Alaskan weather, so we can basically always find a spot that is fishable no matter the weather.
