Alaska Fishing Lodge

Silverking Lodge is an all-inclusive fishing lodge and is located in Southeast Alaska. The waters surrounding our lodge are some of the most fertile salmon spawning grounds in the entire state of Alaska. Located on Grant Island which is 20 miles northwest of Ketchikan, Alaska is the world renowned Alaska fishing loge the Silverking Lodge.

The fishing grounds here are unlike any other in the world. We have been offering self-guided fishing packages for anglers of all experience levels for more than 25 years. During those years manager Kirk Thomas and his team have been helping people realize their dream of visiting the Last Frontier, resting and relaxing with family and friends, and searching out some of the most magnificent fish Alaska has to offer.

Believe it or not there is more to Ketchikan than fishing. Silverking Lodge’s guests enjoy our 900′ rainforest boardwalk. This pristine nature walk will put you in front of the largest known cedar tree in the Tongass National Forest.

Video – Alaska Fishing

This video was produced by one of our guests and really does give you a pretty good idea of what you can expect here at Silverking Lodge. We want to thank Jim and the great job he did making the video. It is too good not to share.

Alaska Fishing Trip

Silverking Lodge’s proximity to Ketchikan makes it one of the easiest all-inclusive remote fishing lodges in Alaska to get to. Following the short 90-minute Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to Ketchikan, you’ll board an Alaskan bush plane for a 15-minute flight to Grant Island home of Silverking Lodge, the longest operating self-guided Alaskan fishing lodge in all of Southeast Alaska. We provide our guests a short orientation that details the area, salmon and bottom fishing techniques and equipment, boat operation, and safety before pointing you out on your adventure. Although hard to believe, you can find yourself fishing just hours after leaving your driveway!

grant-island-alaska-fishing-lodgeThe cool blue waters surrounding Grant Island provide a natural corridor for salmon returning to local rivers to spawn. Silver salmon, particularly, move in large numbers through the area every summer as they return to several natural spawning grounds and a local hatchery. Silvers (or Coho Salmon) can weigh up to 20 lbs. They are known for putting up a ferocious fight that includes spectacular acrobatic displays on the surface. When the Coho are not at their peak, you can vie for the prized Chinook Salmon (June through mid-July), the Pink Salmon (July through August), Chum Salmon (late June through early August), or Sockeye Salmon (available in certain freshwater river systems during July). Halibut and rockfish species are also available June through September around the lodge. Check out our fish availability chart to help plan your next fishing expedition.
