Summer is fast approaching, and we’re patiently itching for the upcoming salmon fishing season to begin here in Angoon, Alaska, at the luxe Favorite Bay Lodge. While the still waters that surround Admiralty Island are teeming with salmon, halibut, and rockfish, we offer so much more than just fishing here at Favorite Bay Lodge, one of the premier Alaska fishing lodges. You’ll discover a surprisingly luxurious wilderness resort that provides everything from gourmet cuisine to jaw-dropping natural beauty. We’ve hand-selected four reasons to visit Admiralty Island during the summertime for those who’re still on the fence about planning a trip to our secluded slice of Alaskan paradise!
Reasons to Visit Favorite Bay Lodge
- World-class fishing – First and foremost, Favorite Bay Lodge prides itself on being one of the best Southeast Alaska fishing lodges. Luckily for prospective anglers, Admiralty Island is a particularly secluded sliver of The Last Frontier – you’ll rarely see another charter. The island itself is known for its breathtaking wildlife, lush forestry, and still canals, which happen to be flush with wild Pacific salmon, “barn door” halibut, and colorful rockfish. The Alexander Archipelago is home to some of the best saltwater salmon fishing in Alaska!
- Gourmet cuisine – One of the real treats about staying at Favorite Bay Lodge is the nightly four-course gourmet dinner cooked on-site by our talented culinary team. You won’t find gourmet cuisine like this at any other Alaska fishing lodges. The meal begins with a light appetizer and a made-from-scratch soup or a locally-sourced garden salad. You’ll enjoy each meal with your fellow anglers, which is a perfect way to meet new people and share tales of the day’s adventures. Expect fresh-caught fish, including Pacific salmon, spotted prawns, and Dungeness crab. You’ll undoubtedly want to stick around for our famous dessert!
- Hiking in Alaska – Tongass National Forest, which completely envelops Admiralty Island, is the world’s largest national forest. Admiralty Island, in particular, is a common location for wilderness documentaries featuring brown bears, bald eagles, Sitka black-tailed deer, and even wolverines. Embark on a guided backpacking expedition inside our lush foresty with a pair of binoculars, hiking boots, and a trusty camera. Favorite Bay Lodge is a short hike from some of the most beautiful places in Alaska where you’ll possibly spot rare birds, woodland critters, hidden lakes, rushing waterfalls, and tasty berries.
- It’s good for you! – Lengthy vacations are scientifically proven to improve mental and physical health. Project: Time Off urges Americans to stop undervaluing their time as we collectively let 705 million unused vacation days slip through the cracks in 2017. Anglers who stay with us will sleep better and make deeper emotional connections with loved ones while earning new perspectives. You’ll return home happier, more productive, and stress-free!
