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.
