Fishing & Guided Activities

At Talaheim Lodge fishing is the specialty. Although changes have been made over the years to enhance growth in the business, Talaheim has never done so without considering the way it would affect the fishing standards. And they've got high standards…

At Talaheim Lodge, their main business is to deliver a top notch Alaska Fishing Adventure. Bush-planes are a wonderful way to travel, but their accessibility is limited to streams with enough water depth, or gravel bars with sufficient runway length. While most Alaska fishing adventures utilize bush-planes as their means of transportation, at Talaheim they Heli-Fish. Talaheim Lodge is the only Alaska fishing adventure with two helicopters for their guest’s exclusive use. We like to call this type of adventure, “fishing Alaska, New Zealand style”.

Lodge & Dining Details

Located 80 miles west of Anchorage, along the eastern slopes of the Alaskan Range, a cluster of beautifully crafted log cabins can be seen just prior to landing at Talaheim’s Alaska Fishing Lodge. After landing on the private strip, guests walk down the path to our main lodge before checking into their personal log cabin. Cozy and rustic in design, yet equipped with all the modern conveniences, Talaheim has three private log cabins for their guest’s exclusive use.

Talaheim’s Alaska Fishing Lodge offers family-style gourmet cuisine seasoned with an Alaskan wilderness flavor. Guests enjoy breakfasts and dinners served at the main lodge, while lunches are served stream-side, either picnic style or around a campfire.

Filet Mignon, wild berry tart, grilled Teriyaki chicken, moosemeat Shepard’s Pie, homemade breads and cereals, and of course a wide array of Alaskan salmon, halibut, and cod grace Talaheim’s dining room table daily.

7-Days of Fishing / 6-Nights Accommodations

    On the morning of your trip start date, you will take a scenice flight via air taxi from Anchorage to Talaheim Lodge.

    Each day you will have the opportunity to fly out via Talaheim Lodge helicopters to different fisheries in the region. You may walk and wade a small stream for rainbow trout one day. The next day you may raft down a river, fishing for large char, trout, or salmon. There are no crowds, and you will enjoy each piece of water in solitude. There is also opportunity to fly to one of the glaciers in the Tordrillo Mountains for a picnic or short hike. Each day is customizable to your specific interests. After a fun day in the field, enjoy a soak in the hot tub, cocktails and home cooked dinner.
  • Saturday
    Departure day starts like previous fishing days except you'll want to pack your belongings before heading out fishing that day. You may fly out to another river or fish the local Talachulitna by boat. At the end of the fishing day, the Talaheim Lodge staff will arrange your air taxi back to Anchorage. Plan on returning to Anchorage by 6:00 p.m.
