Freshwater Fishing at AlpenView Lodge
Fishing is the bread and butter activity at AlpenView. The streams draining into Ugak Bay offer great freshwater fishing for sockeye, silver, pink and chum salmon and dolly varden. AlpenView maintains a variety of boats to access these fisheries, the pride of which is the C/V CAPTAIN K. Both fly and conventional tackle are used throughout these fisheries and are provided to our guests. See our Fishing page for more information.
Take your fish with you
The lodge has a smoker, vacuum packer and a freezer so fish cleaning, freezing and/or smoking are available. Space is limited and so is mother nature so we ask that guests don’t get carried away.
Don’t want to fish all day, every day?
Other activities offered at AlpenView are designed to satisfy a broad range of interest. In this way we strive to be an entertaining destination for the whole family and/or group of friends. Some visitors to Alaska are driven by an interest in fishing, some by wildlife and others are interested in remote relaxation. Whatever your interests in visiting remote Alaska, the staff at AlpenView will do it’s best to accommodate you.
Another great freshwater fishing opportunity is to visit AlpenView’s Out Camp in the heart of the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge.
AlpenView’s Out Camp fishing program starts right outside your tent.
King, sockeye, and silver salmon, Dolly Varden, and steelhead are the target species. Fishing is accessed by walking or traveling in small boats up and down the river. Actual fishing is done by wading or from the bank. There are over thirty miles of fishable water.
