Alaska is known as The Last Frontier. It is so vast that a great deal of the eastern seaboard of the U.S. could fit comfortably within its borders.
Much of the state's appeal is its rugged wildness. At Saltery Lodge, you can take in all of this from the comfort and luxury of our all-inclusive, premiere fishing lodge.
Saltery Lodge is tucked away on an island about 25 miles north of Ketchikan, a scenic coastal town of about 14,000 residents. A popular stop for Alaskan cruise ships, Ketchikan plays host to nearly one million visitors each year.
Our small resort caters to only one group at a time, enabling our staff members to provide you with truly personalized service.
Your true fishing in Alaska experience is assured by our location, which is only accessible by boat or seaplane, virtually guaranteeing you an escape from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life.
Perhaps you've dreamt about fishing in Alaska your whole life. And perhaps when you close your eyes and picture yourself actually fishing in Alaska, you envision spectacularly unsurpassed and remote coastlines, crystal clear freshwater streams and bent rods with salmon, halibut or trout on the other end.
Saltery Lodge has everything you need to make this dream an actuality.
Our captains have years of experience fishing in Alaska, are licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and possess the personality to make each fishing excursion a joy for you and your whole family.
The 35-foot Linnaea is a custom-built vessel that has unique features you wont find on many other fishing lodges boats, including comfortable seating for six people plus the crew, a walk-around deck and indoor bathrooms. But arguably the best creature comfort onboard these boats are the heated cabins.
You probably already know that the fishing in Alaska is amazing. What you might not know is that you can also experience gourmet cuisine in this secluded hideaway.

Not only do you get to take a well-deserved break from cooking and washing the dishes, but also you will have your own private chef to cater to you and your familys specific culinary desires.
