Fresh snow has blanketed beautiful Middle Island with winter officially arriving here in Sitka, Alaska. As families open presents near crackling fireplaces, we’re meticulously planning around the clock for next summer’s fishing opener. No family getaway on Earth rivals salmon fishing in Alaska.
As our name suggests, the cool waters near Sitka, Alaska, are renowned for their monster salmon. Some of the best fishing stories here at Alaska’s Big Salmon Lodge, however, have involved mammoth halibut, colorful rockfish, and terrifying lingcod. Not only do these wild Pacific species tip the scales (especially halibut) but they all make delicious table fare.

We’re one of the only Alaska fishing lodges within 100 miles to undergo a complete renovation recently.
