Angoon Adventures: Alaska Trout Fishing on Admiralty Island

2021-07-09T21:05:25+00:00Admiralty Island Alaska, Alaska Fishing Lodge, Alaska Fishing Packages, Alaska Trout Fishing|

Summer is arguably the best time for Alaska trout fishing. The days are longer, the weather is more predictable, and most importantly, the fish don’t seem to let up. Although we have an abundance of Pacific salmon, rockfish, and halibut near Favorite Bay Lodge, there’s nothing quite like trekking the freshwater rivers searching for Dolly Vardens, cutthroat, and steelhead. Our slice of angling paradise has a relatively high concentration of trout, and so many guests place them at the forefront of their retreat. As such, we’d like to help you prepare for the trout fishing adventure of a lifetime on [...]

Pulling Traps: Fishing for Dungeness Crab in Alaska

2021-06-02T13:50:24+00:00Admiralty Island Alaska, Alaska Fishing Lodge, Alaska Fishing Vacation, Things to Do at Favorite Bay Lodge|

One of the best parts about staying at Favorite Bay Lodge is that it’s not your typical all-inclusive resort in Alaska. While there are many fine lodges on the “Last Frontier,” having a wide array of recreational options besides fishing is what separates the good from the exemplary. People come to Alaska to experience something new and exciting, so having a broad spectrum of activities can go a long way in determining where you stay. One of the lesser-known pastimes for anglers in Alaska is fishing for Dungeness crab. Not only will you have a chance to pull traps filled [...]

Despite many advances in technology over the past couple of decades, wildlife photography remains a somewhat enigmatic hobby that no one can seem to truly master.

An Epic Adventure Awaits at Favorite Bay Lodge

Many people think of the ocean when the topic of salmon arises and for good reason. How many times have you seen ocean anglers on television pulling up massive salmon or heard stories from your buddies about the time they limited out on an Alaska fishing charter? What some people don’t realize is that salmon are an anadromous species, meaning they thrive in both fresh and saltwater.  The life of an Alaska freshwater salmon starts beneath the surface of the inland streams and rivers where they can live for up to several years—depending on the species—before migrating to the ocean.
