A Unique Experience in Cedars Lodge
...The lodge is very comfortable and the food was the best. We enjoyed the staff and their accomidating nature...B & D Tlnz
...When I picked up my fish to take on the plane it was very well packaged and made it home still fully frozen. However upon opening the box I found that we were missing our second days catch...Brian W
...Cedars Lodge did a perfect job of filleting, vacuum sealing, flash freezing and packing our fish (in airline-approved insulated boxes) for pickup the morning of our departure. We ended up with slightly over 50 lbs of fillets, all still frozen solid without any hint of thawing after 9 hours transit home on Alaska Airlines...SemperFido
..My wife and I wanted the whole fillets for presentation at our dinner party, so we were disappointed with receiving small fillets. I called The Cedars and they very promptly apologized for the mistake. They said they would send us another King at their expense. Not only did they send us another fish, they sent us a much bigger fish than the one I originally caught...Steven A
Overall this is a great place to fish. It's in town so you can walk everywhere. It is located on the water and the boats pick you up right in front. They provide all meals which are excellent but this may change next year as they will have a new cook after years with Linnie making everything...Kevin D
We used The Cedars Lodge for fish processing on a recent trip to Ketchikan. We knew processing and shipping was expensive, so we arranged to pick our fish up on our day of departure (which was the 2nd day after our fishing excursion)...WildHorn
Waters around The Cedars Lodge are prime rearing grounds for Chinook, Sockeye, Coho, Chum, and Pink salmon, making it one of Alaska’s premier salmon fishing destinations. But phenomenal salmon fishing isn’t all The Cedars Lodge offers its guests – we also cater to anglers who are looking for some Alaska halibut fishing as well. Ketchikan, Alaska.
In fact, Ketchikan, Alaska offers one of the few places in the state where halibut fishing and salmon fishing are done as part of the same excursion. Weather permitting, you and your Alaska sportfishing guide will venture out each day after salmon, halibut and other bottom fish. Your professional fishing guide is an independent business owner, with years of fishing experience. This relationship with local charter skippers has allowed us to ensure that The Cedars Lodge guests are fishing with the best fishermen around.
The Cedars Lodge also offers the unique opportunity to try your hand at some Alaska freshwater fishing on rivers and lakes that rarely get fished. Accessed by float plane, your freshwater fishing guide will find a fishing hole that meets your physical ability, skill level, and type of fishing that is interesting to you!
Use a spin caster or fly rod to chase after brown, cutthroat, dolly varden, and rainbow trout. If you are interested in some freshwater salmon fishing, your Alaskan guide can also find rivers that are full of silver salmon and pink salmon.
While most people plan their Alaska fishing vacation with an eye to some fantastic fishing, your trip would not be complete without all of the extra amenities that are the icing on the cake. The Cedars Lodge offers water-front accommodations near downtown Ketchikan, Alaska. Sit in your room at the lodge and watch floatplanes, boats, tugs, barges, and cruise ships pass in and out of the channel.
Watch charter boats pull up to the dock after a successful day of halibut and salmon fishing and catch the beautiful night sky as the sun sets in the evening. Mountain-view standard and economy rooms are also available for anglers that would rather allocate their resources to additional fishing, sightseeing, or local excursions during their stay.
Your Alaska fishing vacation would only be part-way complete without the enjoyment of some great food and friends after a hard day of fishing. Daily meals include breakfast, a sack lunch for you to take with you on the boat, and delicious dinner meals including fresh Alaska salmon, halibut, crab, and shrimp. Meals are served buffet-style and offer the warmth and comfort of being at home with family and friends.
There are lots of Alaska fishing lodges and Alaska fishing resorts to choose from but none that offer the comfort, food, service and fishing opportunities that are found at The Cedars Lodge.
We’re confident that one visit will cement The Cedars Lodge as the place you’ll spend your Alaska fishing vacation for many years to come.
