First, we would like to thank you for considering Island Point Lodge for a fishing trip to Alaska. Island Point Lodge can offer you a complete salmon and halibut fishing trip including lodging and meals. You can make airline reservations yourself, or we can assist you with them.
The following will provide you with more details of what to expect at Island Point Lodge. We will explain what is provided at the lodge, and what is expected of you when you select our lodge for your Alaskan Salmon.. and Halibut Fishing experience.
Island Point Lodge will provide you with comfortable accommodations for a reasonable cost. It is important to understand that this is called a 'fishing trip', not a 'catching trip'. There will be times when large schools of fish will arrive creating a catching frenzy. At other times it will be fishing as usual, you have to work at it.
A FISHING TRIP THAT FITS YOUR BUDGET!
The length of the trip is approximately 9 days, portal to portal (reference the day schedule sheet for details). The trip includes 7 days and 6 nights at Island Point Lodge, and one day each way for air travel. Arrival day is Saturday and departure day is the following Friday.
Air transportation is by jet aircraft to Petersburg, AK. Island Point lodge personnel will meet you at the airport and transport you by van and boat to the lodge.
Tourism is very popular during the summer months in Alaska. Early reservations for Alaska Air will offer better air fare pricing as well as seat assignments.
The lodge is set up for the experienced fisherman with knowledge in operating outboard motors on small crafts. Our crafts are 18 foot Aluminum Alaskan Lunds with outboard motors operated from a side console. The operators must have the knowledge and the ability to read nautical maps. The Lodge will provide halibut and salmon charters in salt water for an additional charge. Details for charter guided trips can be obtained at the lodge or through the office.
The fishing hours are unlimited, not like those of guided camps where fishing times are scheduled! Trolling for some salmon species is done directly in front of the lodge. This allows the fisherman an opportunity to fish from dawn (3 or 6 am) until breakfast, which are sometimes the most productive hours for fishing. Within five to forty five minutes from the lodge there are several rivers offering the spinner, caster and fly fisherman the opportunity to catch one or more of several sepcies of salmon and trout.
