I've been going to Orca Adventure Lodge for the past 3 years and it is a great place to stay if you are into river fishing for silver salmon with both fly rod and spinner. The lodge offers self guided fishing on the Ibek Creek and guided fishing on the Eyak river. Both within a 15 to 20 minutes drive from the lodge. The accomodations are very basic but very clean. Daily maid service helps keep your room tidy everyday. The staff at Orca are very friendly and hard working. The lodge offers a great breakfast and lunch. However, it's the evening meals that blow me away. The current Chef at Orca is fantastic. Just talking with him I can tell that he is very passionate about the food he serves. This lodge is built on an old cannery and has a very rustic feel to it. What more can a fisherman ask for? Close proximity to the fishing grounds, very basic but clean rooms with private bath, 3 great meals a day, and one of the hottest silver salmon runs I've seen in the great State of Alaska.
