That’s no knock on our camps and lodges in Alaska, it’s not cheap or easy flying or boating food and supplies into a remote camp.
But if you’re up for a true DIY Alaskan adventure for a value price, Talarik Creek Lodge is a great option. Seven-night, six-day trips for adventurous anglers run as little as $2,000 per angler (group price). Talarik Creek Lodge will run you and your fishing buddies to a fully-stocked tent camp where you can catch big rainbows, salmon and pike.
Not that adventurous? No problem, for $1,500 more, you sleep in a cabin and have a hot shower every night. There are also options for fully guided trips out of the lodge.
Talarik Creek Lodge is nestled on the shores of picturesque Lake Iliamna, which is Alaska’s largest lake and in the legendary Bristol Bay watershed, which is home to world's largest salmon runs and phenomenal fishing for salmon-sized rainbow trout.
This is trip novice or expert fly anglers will both enjoy. Fish are plentiful and not difficult to catch, but experts will be tested trying to hook and land the biggest of the big.
If you’re on the fence about an Alaskan fishing trip, let a stiff shore breeze blow you off it and into one of the world’s greatest fishing destinations, and for prices like these, you can afford to keep coming back.
