This lodge should not have advertised its "Tuna Packages" the way they did. While stating that they "are going to designate two fully rigged 28' to 30' boats...for this exciting fishery" these boats were nowhere in sight. In fact, given the size of the actual boats used, to actually fish for tuna from this lodge everything had to be perfect... More

I have fished at Rodgers for many years in a row. Each year there is something special that happens out in these waters. From my first year (8 years ago) catching a 52 lb King out at the highway to this year bringing my boys with me and watching them each catch 26 - 28 lb Kings. World class Chinook,... More

We have been going to Rodgers for years. We bring our own boat, launch at Gold River and run the inlet to the lodge. It is a perfect place for clean, comfortable accommodations, good food, friendly staff and unparalleled fishing. I cannot remember a trip where we did not go home with limits of salmon and healthy amount of halibut... More

I give Doug Rodgers and Rodgers Fishing Lodge a ZERO RATING when it comes to BUSINESS INTEGRITY AND HONESTY. I booked an Early Bird special trip for Sep 2014 back in May for an agreed upon price for a party of 3, and gave a 50% deposit at that time. When Mr. Rodgers collected the balance for the contracted amount,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Although most of our customers were notified of the fuel surcharge for the 2014 season, I am sorry that we missed notifying you. We have found it impossible to know what the price of fuel is going to be months before a new season starts. We were led to believe... More

Two of my buddies and myself went for the first time to Rodgers Fishing Lodge last August and had a hell of a fishing experience with our guide Richard Johnson who put us on fish within the first few minutes. We caught our limits of big Chinooks, Coho and Halibuts each day. The meals, accommodation were excellent at the Lodge... More

I just returned from a fantastic fall coho hunt at Rodgers Fishing Lodge. My guide, Troy, put me on fish my first afternoon and caught my limit in short order. It was the same every day. Dougs boats are the best I have experienced and i have been fishing the Queen Charlottes and Alaska for many years. No open cockpits... More

This year the trip was super, the guides were awesome and the meals were great and we took home full coolers . The boats... More

Brian B If you are looking for variety, excitement, great food and excellent guides, give Rodgers a try. I have been fishing out of Rodgers for over 20 years and have had a great experience every time. Springs , coho and halibut are plentiful and a relatively short run to lines in the water. My son and I just returned... More

I absolutely love going fishing and have always gone off the coast of California. Rodgers fishing lodge was recommended to me and I gave them a try at the end of August 2014. The fishing here was amazing! With only 3 people, we brought home over 250pounds of fish after just 3 days of fishing. The boat guides really know... More
