Gone Fishing

Experience World-Class Fishing

The Salt Water Experience

Our location on Admiralty Island is well off the beaten track and therefore provides unparalleled saltwater fishing within minutes of the Lodge. All five species of Wild Pacific Salmon, monster Halibut, and a fabulous variety of Rockfish make your adventure to Favorite Bay Lodge truly unforgettable. We have only Local guides who have been fishing these waters their whole lives. All of our guides are Coast Guard certified and have their own large comfortable boats. We will provide all bait, tackle and gear, including rubber boots, jackets and pants, as well as a gourmet boxed lunch to enjoy while you are out there – catching the big one! Once you are back on land, we will process your catch to go home with you. Our fish processing includes filleting of fish, modern vacuum sealing, flash freezing and packaging in an insulated fish box.

The Fresh Water Experience

Within minutes of the Lodge you will travel by small boat to the mouth of native streams healthy with runs of Dolly Varden, Cutthroat and Steelhead Trout. Also seasonal freshwater salmon fishing is a memorable experience. We fish these streams from shore and kayak or canoe as we follow them to hidden lakes, which are their source. Our experienced Native guides will assist all levels of anglers with fly rod and ultra light spinning gear.
