Hard to believe it was 1974 when owner, operator, and long time Alaskan resident, Mark Miller, engraved his first mark on the Talachulitna River. With just one rubber raft, one small aircraft, and one hair on his chest, Mark set out to build what is now a luxury Alaskan fishing lodge.
More than 40 years later, Talaheim is still a family run operation known throughout the world as a destination of choice for anglers.
But it’s not just the pristine waters, helicopter access, and extraordinary fishing that have guests returning to Talaheim year after year. It’s our hospitality.
“It’s rare that an angler gets to come to a place where the fishing is exceeded only by the hospitality and camaraderie,” writes one guest. “I am humbled by the warmth and affection that Mark, Felicia, and their staff have shown us all week long.”
By limiting guests to only 8 fishermen per week, we ensure that everyone deserves the top notch service and attention to detail that a once in a lifetime experience deserves.
And when it comes to staff, we’ve set up an environment that not only attracts experts, but retains them. Most of our staff, like our salmon, return year after year which means guests enjoy a special brand of expertise, talent, and character.
During the days, fishing guides and pilots expertly navigate our 100 miles of remote waters, offering up techniques, tips, and laughs. During mealtimes, while everyone enjoys an array of homemade cuisine served gourmet family style, Mark and his staff share harrowing tales of wilderness Alaska that will rival anything you’ve watched on reality TV.
You may come as a guest, but you’ll leave as family.
