What a great place to fish! Very remote and secluded, plus more fish than I've ever seen (or caught) anywhere else. Grayling, salmon, char and pike make for constant action, even for a novice fly fisherman like me. Plus, Cliff, Cheryl, and all the guides are great.

Pictures cannot do this place justice. Unless you experience this in person you will not know how special this place is. The amenities they have provided for there guest in this remote area of Alaska is unbelievable. You have to see it to believe it. Thanks to everyone at the lodge for there hard work in making our trip unforgettable.

If you love being in the outdoors and fishing, the Anvik River Lodge is as good as it gets. U are truely in one of the most remote places in the USA, as you travel in a private jet from Anchorage to the village of Anvik in 1.5 hours followed by a 2 hour boat ride to the lodge. Well...

Beautiful lodge, good food, excellent guides to take you fishing. Each 2 persons has a guide so you are never crowded in your boat. We caught our limit of salmon each day which the staff smoked for us. Yummy! Landscape pristine with many birds and animals--moose, bear, wolf.

In the middle of Winter I set out in search of a place to have the fishing trip of a lifetime. The criteria for such a trip were difficult to meet: 1) it had to be remote -- meaning somewhat difficult to get to; 2) very few people would be there at any moment in time; 3) the fishing had...

If you like catching lots of fish, excellent hospitality and great food. Anvik river lodge is the place. It's remote but worth the effort and worth every penny. I went with 5 friends and we all want to go back asap. Giant northern and salmon, grayling and chat. It's the trip that needs to be on your bucket list.

Disregard the remoteness (typically three flights from your hub airport and a 60 mile upriver jet boat ride). Only 800 guests total have ever been here, and there will never be other lodges on this river. You will not find a more wonderful hands-on Alaska fishing experience than this. Cliff, Cheryl, the experienced fishing guides and the lodge staff are...
