FLY FISH REMOTE ALASKAN WATERS
Talaheim Lodge is the only Alaska fishing lodge with two helicopters for our guests’ exclusive use. Bush-planes are a wonderful way to travel, but their accessibility is limited to streams with enough water depth, or gravel bars with sufficient runway length. And with Alaska having the largest population of bush pilots in the world, a known bush-plane accessible fishing hole will undoubtedly mean you’ll have company.
Within a 15-minute helicopter flight from Talaheim, we have access to over 100 miles of great fishing waters. Tributaries that are so remote that if you see a foot print, it was likely your guides from the week prior. Not only do guests of Talaheim fish streams rarely shared by other anglers, the lodge itself is located 80 air miles from Anchorage, in an area only accessible via our private airstrip, thus further limiting the competition.
The fact that we can reach a variety of tributaries during the week also means we don’t over fish our waters.
Plus, fish that are used to maneuvering around human predators are smart. On the other hand, fish that aren’t used to human predators is a beautiful thing— they bite hard and without reservation. They jump, fight, and pull on the line like their life depends on it.
Most of our rivers are wade-able and perfect for fishermen that like to cast across small rivers in search for that perfect catch. But if you need a break from wading, no problem. Our portable blow-up canoes offer that flexibility– you can choose to walk the river in part, or not at all. With a helicopter as your means of transportation, you are free to follow the fish, whether that be for three miles or just 300 feet. We’ll pick you up wherever you end up.
At Talaheim Lodge, we don’t believe in combat fishing, and when deciding on a once-in-a-lifetime Alaskan fishing adventure, we think neither should you.
