If your looking to fullfill a life long dream of fishing in Alaska, Icy Bay Lodge is the place to go. I was there this past September in the heart of the Silver Salmon run. Because of the unsually warm fall this year, the run was supposed to be slow. I wouldn't have known that unless I read it, because the fantastic guides at Icy Bay put us on the fish every day! We had one day were the surf didn't cooperate with us landing on the beach of that days planned hot spot, but the crew quickly swung into action with Plan "B". We headed out to the bay to give Halibut fishing a try so that the whole day of fishing wasn't lost. See that Halibut season was a couple of weeks past it's expiration, the crew wasn't sure how we would fair, but their knowledge of the local waters paid off again. As you can see in the picture, Plan B produced a monsterous 50" 120# Halibut! The lodge itself is as comfortable as it can be in the secluded wilderness. Comfortable couches, satellite big screen tv, wireless internet, snacks, and a warm fire were always waiting for us on our daily return from fishing. The cabins where very clean, well built, and free from insects. I've called this the Fishing Trip of a lifetime, but have to take that title back, because I will surely be back to Icy Bay Lodge!!
