As the king salmon season comes to an end, Talaheim’s Alaska Fishing Lodge delivers one angler an experience of a lifetime.

Guests Bill and Barb from Florida were very experienced salt water anglers, but they came to Talaheim to catch a king salmon on a fly in Alaska! Once dialed in with heavy sink tips and weighted salmon flies, they started catching and between the two of them they released five large kings up to 35 pounds and several jack king salmon.

“What a fantastic experience! The lodge was perfect, staff wonderful and the guides all have such skill and patience! Still not comfortable getting in and out of the helicopter with the blades turning – I’m such a chicken! But the ride was worth the fear. We caught a wide variety of fish, using different methods. Everyday was great. Thank you so much. Love, light and laughter.”
