Talon Lodge & Spa
Ranked #1 of 14 Specialty Lodging in Sitka
Reviewed October 26, 2009

I made my first trip to Talon Lodge with my 14 year old son. The fishing experience was fantastic (two days on the ocean fishing for salmon, halibut and rockfish and one day fly fishing in glacial lakes and streams accessed only by float plane). Although my son was the only kid at the lodge that week, Phil and Gwen Younger and all the other guests made him feel very comfortable and he is still talking about the experience. Phil and Gwen and their staff make you feel like family and the hospitality is great. Talon Lodge thinks of every detail to make the trip a success. We limited out on all the fish each day we were out there and the fish arrived home in perfect condition. We will definitely be back again and plan to be regulars. Great experience, better than advertised!

This coming summer will be our fifth year back to Talon Lodge. It is located on a small island just minutes from the charming town of Sitka. It is a family owned operation and Phil and Gwen Younger are the perfect hosts. The fishing has always been excellent when we go the first week in August. The food is outstanding, ambience is amazing and the accomodations are very comfortable. It is worth every penny and proves the theory " that you usually get what you pay for". My husband and I look forward to it every year.

Talon is an upscale fishing lodge located on a small island outside the harbor in Sitka. The lodge itself is beautifully done and meals are prepared by an on-site chef who serves excellent food. Beds are twins but rooms are reasonably spacious and clean. Cocktails and hors d oeuvres are served at an outside bar before dinner each evening in a spectacularly scenic setting. While the off-water experience was great, the purpose in traveling to Alaska is for quality salmon and halibut fishing and Talon didn't measure up to expectations from this standpoint. While the boats are clean and well maintained, the guide on our boat was unable to find active halibut over a 3 day fishing trip---we were not informed by the owner that the limit for halibut had been reduced to one per day from prior year limits, but this ultimately didn't matter as we caught so few. Also, despite being close to the seasonal peak time for silver salmon they were virtually nonexistent. Fish caught were well taken care of and arrived home in very good condition, although the volume of fish received was short of the boat count. Positives: beautiful lodge and scenery, great meals. Negatives: very expensive, fishing far poorer than expected.
