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.
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
