Fishing & Guided Activities
No See Um Lodge is located on the banks of the world-famous Kvichak River in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska. The fishing at No See Um Lodge changes almost daily. The lodge uses float planes to access many different fisheries throughout the region. Although fishing large Alaska rainbow trout is a speciality for No See Um Lodge, they also have fantastic opportunities to fish for all five Pacific salmon species.
The small number of clients (a maximum of 12) allows for a different fishing experience every day. Owner John Holman and the pilot/guides will give you the best options possible so you can decide what you want in a day's fishing. The daily options are dependent upon weather, water conditions, time of year, physical factors and your specific interests. You can be assured that no matter what your needs are, No See Um Lodge can accommodate them.

Tuesday - SundayTuesday through Sunday are all-day fishing days. The structure of the No See Um fishing program gives them great flexibility and because of this there’s no “typical” day. Every day the rivers you will fish are determined based on fishing and river conditions, weather, and guest input. It’s a customized fishing experience. Breakfast time will be determined at dinner the evening before, but generally is between 6 and 7:30 am. You will be woken up 15 minutes before breakfast with a knock on your door and cup a freshly brewed coffee. After breakfast you will fly out to your fishing location and will remain out all day. Lunch is packed fresh every morning and will be carried by your guide and eaten on the river. You will arrive back to the lodge one hour before dinner, appetizers are served in the guest house at this time. Dinner is generally served 12 hours after breakfast.
