Unforgettable Alaska Fishing Trips with Kingfisher Lodge and Charters
People who go on Alaska fishing vacations are the envy of their peers. Many of the most prized species of game fish thrive in the pristine waters of America’s largest state. For some, Alaska fishing lodges offer the perfect getaway to the wilds of the north, while still offering enough creature comforts to make the stay relaxing and enjoyable.
One thing is certain; few destinations offer the unspoiled beauty and incredible fishing that Alaska always delivers. Alaska fishing vacations put you front and center on fast fishing action for salmon and halibut, while completely immersed in the endless landscape that defines the state. These endless horizons are the backdrop that we call “home,” and we would like you to choose Kingfisher from the long list of Alaska fishing lodges.
At Kingfisher Charters and Lodge, we believe there are some very good reasons why we make Alaska fishing trips unforgettable. For one, Sitka is recognized by the State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game as ranking highest in the region for fishing catch rates and total overall fishing catch for both halibut and salmon. When you’re talking about a region already known for some of the best fishing in the world, the fact that Sitka has some of the best fishing in the state is undeniably impressive.
Alaska fishing vacations to Sitka give anglers the opportunity to tangle with some of the biggest fish in the region. This means that a trophy salmon or a barn-door halibut is always just a cast away. This is the kind of fishing you’re undoubtedly looking for – fighting with the tackle busting lunkers that will put your skills to the test, Alaska style.
Kingfisher – The Pinnacle of Alaska Fishing Lodges
When you first sit out on our spacious deck at Kingfisher Lodge, it becomes crystal clear why you travelled to Alaska. The view over Sitka Sound is an unforgettable sight, where panoramic vistas stretch beyond the snow-capped peaks that seem to never end. While other Alaska fishing lodges can boast many things, only Kingfisher can boast the incredible views that our location offers.
The finest Alaska fishing lodges offer a wide range of modern amenities, and Kingfisher goes beyond what is expected. We have something to suit everyone, and we are always ready to address any special needs. Our Sitka fishing lodge has five buildings with private kitchens, private baths, and luxurious living rooms. Other lodge amenities include television, internet, and telephone. We want your stay to be as comfortable as possible, and you will find that our local staff is always available and ready to make your Alaska vacation as relaxing as it can be.
Catching fish all day usually works up a hearty appetite, and the food we offer at Kingfisher Lodge won’t disappoint. We believe that the Alaska fishing trips we host should feature some of the wondrous bounty that our waters provide, while still offering a complete menu that appeals to a wide range of palettes. Our resident chef prepares every meal to mouth-watering perfection. This includes breakfast, lunch, and gourmet dinners, featuring Alaska favorites such as locally caught prawns, Dungeness crab, and mouth-watering prime rib.
We believe that Kingfisher’s commitment to excellence help us stand out as one of the premier destinations for Alaska fishing vacations. We take a great deal of pride in our luxury accommodations, fine dining, and our friendly local Sitka staff.
The Best Alaska Fishing Trips Include Lots of Fish
Fishing in Alaska is recognized around the world as some of the best, because that’s just what it is. When people first set their eyes on a run of salmon moving up through local streams they are often at a loss for words. The fishing we do at Kingfisher focuses on premium sport fish that pose a tough contest for even the most seasoned angler, and provide unparalleled fare for the dinner table.
What follows is a brief overview of some of the most prized fish we target on our fishing trips.
- King Salmon – They don’t call them the king for nothing. These are the undisputed heavyweights of the Alaska salmon class, and Sitka is recognized as holding some the most and the largest overall fish in the region. Alaska king salmon are fast, tough fish that will put your endurance, and your gear, to the test. King salmon are what Alaska fishing is all about.
- Silver Salmon – In late summer and early fall the king salmon fishing slows down and the air gets cooler, but the silver salmon fishing is just heating up. Many Alaska anglers agree that pound for pound, silvers are one of the best fighting fish in the world. They are known for their frequent aerobatic displays, and are perfect for the bottom of a skillet.
- Halibut – Alaska fishing vacations are not complete without the opportunity to feel the brute strength of the world’s largest flatfish. It takes strong arms and sheer will to hoist halibut from the depths, but their white, flaky flesh makes the effort worth every sore muscle.
- Lingcod – Lingcod might be ugly, but they are arguably the finest table fare in all of Alaska’s seas. Our Alaska fishing trips always include an opportunity to catch one of these hard fighting fish.
At Kingfisher, one of the things that make our Alaska fishing trips so unique is that we target both salmon and bottom fish on every fishing trip. Because our Alaska waters are so plentiful, we are able to share this rare fishing opportunity with all of our guests.
Alaska Fishing Vacations Should Be Unforgettable & Productive
Alaska is more than just another destination on a map – it is America’s last great frontier. On any given day you could see a whale breaching just offshore, while a mother grizzly teaches her cubs to feed on teeming salmon. It is a place where your imagination can be freed and linger amidst the grand scale of unbroken wilderness.
Alaska is a place where you can find relaxation in between the moments where unforgettable fishing fills the hours of the day. We realize that there are a lot of Alaska fishing lodges out there, but we suggest that you give Kingfisher a chance.
Sitka, Alaska is our home, and we are eager to share our love of this amazing place with you. There are many joys that go along with being an Alaskan, and we want to make your fishing vacation the absolute best experience it can be. When it’s over you might have sore arms, but we know for a fact you won’t want to leave.
