Alaska Fishing At Its Finest Fresh & Saltwater Fishing
Whether testing your endurance fighting a tireless Alaska Halibut or the thrill of hooking a lightning-fast run of a trophy Alaska King Salmon, Southeast Alaska fishing earns it reputation as some of the finest in the World. Angling opportunities abound in the freshwater and saltwater surrounding Fireweed Luxury Fishing Lodge. Our local Alaska experience and love of sportfishing makes it possible for our guests to enjoy the Alaska fishing experience of a lifetime. The majority of all Alaska salmon runs retuning to the coastal streams and rivers of Canada and Alaska either mature in, or pass by, our famous Southeast Alaska fishing grounds. We are proud to offer clients phenomenal fishing for halibut, rockfish, lingcod, steelhead, trout, and all five species of salmon. We are the premier Alaska fishing lodge in the region and we look forward to your arrival this coming summer.
Alaska Trophy King Salmon
King salmon are the largest of all the salmon and their long, fast runs put drags through their paces, and bring a smile to the face. Peak season for Alaska kings occurs from late May through July, but kings are caught year round at our location in Southeast Alaska.
ALASKA SILVER (COHO) SALMON
Silvers do not grow as large as kings, but what they lack in size they make up for with daring runs, ferocious tail dances, and thrashing leaps. Maturing fish can be caught with regularity in saltwater from late June through August, and spawning fish can be targeted in freshwater from September through October.
SOUTHEAST ALASKA HALIBUT FISHING
Our fishery for halibut in Southeast Alaska is so reliable and consistent they are often caught by accident when targeting other fish. The fine white flesh of Alaska halibut can be prepared in a myriad different ways, making them one of the most versatile game fish when it comes to preparation. Barn doors weighing over 100-pounds put back muscles to the test and anglers are often surprised by their long, driving runs.
ALASKA STEELHEAD & TROUT
April is the best month for targeting steelhead in Southeast Alaska. Steelhead are recognized as a true test for any angler on both fly and conventional gear. The freshwater streams surrounding the lodge are filled with hungry trout all year, and many are accessible by road. It is possible to target trout on multiple Alaska fishing streams in a single day of fishing!
Rockfish are one the finest tasting fish in all of Southeast Alaska, and are abundant in our waters throughout the season. Spin casting with light tackle for Black Bass and Yellow Eye Rockfish is a thrill for any angler, and even bigger thrill on the dinner table.
