The wait is nearly over as spring’s arrival signifies that we’re only weeks away from the start of the much-anticipated fishing season here on jaw-dropping Admiralty Island, one of the most beautiful places in Alaska. Not only does Favorite Bay Lodge provide visiting anglers with world-class salmon fishing in Alaska, but you’ll have the rare opportunity to hike, kayak, whale watch, and trap crabs on arguably the prettiest island in North America. Before boarding a plane headed for Angoon, Alaska, we recommend learning more about the upcoming fishing season by reading further.
What to Bring / What to Leave at Home
Luckily for you, Favorite Bay Lodge provides all anglers with the fishing essentials, including all bait, tackle, and gear, so leave your rods, rubber boots, rain jackets, and waders at home. It’s a good idea, however, to bring along sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, extra layers, and a waterproof camera. You won’t have to lug an insulated fish box to the lodge because we provide complimentary fish processing, including filleting, vacuum-sealing, flash-freezing, and packaging.
Marvelous Salmon Fishing in Alaska
Fishing lodges that offer above-average salmon fishing in Alaska are a dime a dozen, but Favorite Bay Lodge’s group of fishing guides have been drifting through these waters their whole lives. We only hire locals, so you’ll only be visiting meticulously-researched freshwater AND saltwater honey holes. Each group of anglers will have the ability to reel in all five species of wild Pacific salmon, a wide variety of delicious, colorful rockfish, and monster barn-door halibut. For those who desire a secluded freshwater fishing experience, you’ll be led to Admiralty Island’s best streams to battle spawning salmon and several trout species. Oftentimes, the only way to reach these streams is via kayak or canoe, which adds an extra element of adventure. Depending on the location, we’ll be using both fly rod and ultra-light spinning gear.
The Jaw-Dropping Natural Beauty
We urge our guests to “find their primitive side” by embracing this pristine land with arms wide open. We’re merely visitors here on Admiralty Island – brown bears, bald eagles, and humpback whales are the true rulers. The breathtaking Tongass National Forest, the nation’s largest national forest, encompasses Favorite Bay Lodge, so there will always be opportunities to observe the island’s majestic wildlife. There’s no secret that salmon fishing in Alaska sits atop many mainlanders’ bucket lists, so we’re typically fully booked well in advance. Don’t miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime Alaskan vacation filled with world-class fishing, gourmet cuisine, and jaw-dropping natural beauty!
