INTRODUCTION

Lava Creek Lodge is a pristine destination in a wild and beautiful place, with fishing that gets very little outside pressure. The country is spectacular, the lodging quite comfortable, and the fishing definitely rates as one of the finest king and silver fly fishing destinations on the planet!

It is custom-tailored for the serious salmon angler who values remote and nearly untouched water, swing fishing for dime-bright kings and chums, and surface and streamer action for big, hyper-aggressive silver salmon. With the ultra-low occupancy, anglers get the pick of the litter of the best pools on the home river, as well as other rivers accessed by float plane.

SEASONS

JUNE - SEPTEMBER

Lava Creek Lodge is all about offering some of the finest, most remote, lightly-fished fly fishing for king, chum and silver salmon in Alaska. King salmon (Chinook) season starts in early June and runs strong through mid-July, and there are plenty of big chrome kings available throughout those dates.

Silver salmon season begins in early to mid-August and runs through mid-September – likewise, there are bright fish available throughout the season. The lodge accesses miles of river for these popper-eating brutes, fish which average large, even by Alaska standards.

• King Season: JUN 06 - JUL 11

• Grand Slam Season: JUL 11 - AUG 15

• Silver Season: AUG 05 - SEP 19

 

GETTING TO THE LODGE

Lava Creek Lodge has arranged for a private charter from Anchorage, Alaska, to a landing strip eleven miles from the lodge. The charter service used is Anchorage Aero, located at Lake Hood, Anchorage, Alaska.

You’ll want to take a hotel shuttle or taxi to their hangar in order to catch your flight. Check in time is noon, with a scheduled departure at 1:00 PM.

Upon arrival to the airstrip, you will be flown in a float plane (usually two to three anglers at a time) the approximate 10-minute flight to the lodge.


THE LODGE

Lava Creek Lodge is a brand new facility, approximately 110 miles southwest of the town of King Salmon, Alaska. The lodge accommodates a maximum of eight anglers a week.

 


TIPICAL FISHING DAY AT LAVA CREEK LODGE

The angling package at Lava Creek Lodge includes a combination of guided fishing on the home waters and, weather permitting, some possible fly-out fishing on regional rivers. After a hearty breakfast, you'll put on your waders on the porch of your cabin, grab your tackle, and take the short walk down to where the jet boats and/or plane will be awaiting to whisk you to a seemingly endless supply of picture-perfect runs and pools. The guides will have you moving all day, jumping from one piece of water to the next with their boats, then getting out and wading. It is not unusual to cover miles of river in a day.
