I loved Tower Rock Lodge and can’t wait to go back. My wife and I spent a few days there this fall and had a remarkable time. The guides are knowledgable, friendly and all have a sense of humor. The food is good. The cabins, camp, lodge and equipment are clean and well kept. If you are planning a fishing... More

This is what I was hoping to experience for my very first visit to Alaska and my first time fly-fishing, but assumed was too much to ask for. Tower Rock Lodge was great: my uncle and I stayed in a cool little log cabin that was walking distance to a fire pit and the food house, where we were treated... More

We had never been to Alaska, so we depended on Trip Advisor and Orvis-endorced to guide us to Tower Rock. We wound up having the perfect all-around AK fishing experience. Lodging, staff, meals and amenities were 5 star every day. Even the sub-contractors (bush pilot/aircraft, ocean fishing, fish processing) were outstanding. The guides truly knew their business and made each... More

You want the REAL ALASKA? here it is. Every time I hear someone say we went to Alaska on a cruise and it was great. It probably was, but it wasn't Alaska. We saw an otter and several river seals, fantastic, but it wasn't Alaska.How would you like to be standing in front of your cabin and have a young... More

1. Weather - August & September usually has rain every day. 2. Lodge capacity - Tower Rock has a guest capacity of 24 per week. They are known to over book, lodging extras at a local motel. Great - except their dining room holds at max. of 20. You become packed in like sardines. 3. Fly fishing for silvers is... More

If you are going to this region of Alaska, this is a "must stay" place. It has alll the typical things you would expect for a premium price ( great food, excellent accommodations, etc.) but what really makes it great is the warm and inviting staff. Everyone from the guides to the folks in the kitchen treat you amazing well... More

I just 5 completed my 8th visit to Tower Rock Lodge and I have visited TRL as an individual, a couple along with my wife, and have used the facility as a sales incentive for the managers of the company. On all levels Mike and Mark Tuhy have performed admirably, they provide one with a can do attitude and have... More

I complete my 6th visit to TRL this past July. As always, Mark and Mike were extremely flexible with my special arrangements, traveling as a single. Yea, I catch a lot of fish, but I visit in mid-July when the fish are in full time, so that is a pretty easy feat to accomplish. Don't get me wrong, you still... More

We had a fantastic week at Tower Rock in late July 2014. It was the perfect family vacation. We loved, loved Jefferson house, a quirky well appointed house with beautiful stained glass accents. Mike, Griff and all of our guide could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable. The ladies in the dining hall always made sure we had everything... More

My family of 6 stayed at Tower Rock Lodge in July for 3 nights. The staff greeted us and showed us to our rooms. We had the Jefferson house and a room in the Lodge. The rooms were typical of other fishing lodges that I have been to, comfortable , but not luxurious. The Jefferson house has one bedroom with... More
