Unmatched. Unspoiled. Unforgettable.
Nestled on the banks of the Unalakleet River overlooking the rolling Nulato Hills and tundra, our lodge is 8 miles upriver of the Norton Sound and the village of Unalakleet. The Unalakleet River Lodge provides exceptional access to premiere fishing. As the only fishing lodge on the river, guests have the opportunity to fish uncrowded waters providing anglers and families an exclusive opportunity to experience the true remoteness of Alaska.
The Unalakleet is recognized as a National Wild and Scenic River with 140 miles of prime Alaska Salmon Fishing. The Unalakleet River is home to large runs of King Salmon, Chum Salmon, Pink Salmon, Silver or Coho Salmon, Dolly Varden, Arctic Char, and a native population of Arctic Grayling.
Isolated from the pressures of road systems and fly out operations, guides and guests are able to access the river system via 16 & 18 foot aluminum boats in comfort. Our guide staff prides themselves on their service, knowledge of the river and their skills as anglers and teachers to accommodate a variety of fishing methods and experience levels. We provide all tackle and equipment for Fly, Spey, and conventional fishing.
Luxury and Comfort
While we pride ourselves on providing a premiere fishing experience tailored to beginners and experienced anglers alike, we know that the moments in between catching fish are just as important. Our friendly guides and staff are here to provide you exceptional service both on the river and in the lodge. We operate a nearly one to one guest to staff ratio to ensure our guests needs, no matter how small or large, are met. After a long day on the river, we know that comfort matters. Guests can unwind from the convenience of their own private cabins with full baths outfitted with fine comforts and hot water heaters. Meals are prepared by a team of culinary professionals with a modern and fresh approach to lodge dining, incorporating local and flavorful cuisine to accommodate every pallet, diet, and request. Whether it’s still light out or finally getting dark in the evenings, guests can enjoy a drink at our fully stocked bar, try and spot wildlife from the deck or enjoy the view, play a card game with friends, or break out a puzzle on the coffee table… All are welcome.
