Alaska’s Deshka River Lodge is nestled along the east bank of the Deshka River at mile 1 look for the stone wall. Only 60 air miles northwest of Anchorage. Our location is remote and prime for wilderness activities. Alaska’s Deshka River Lodge is only accessible by plane or boat. Coordinates N61° 42′ 45.57″ W150° 19′ 32.45″
The Susitna river drainage is known for world class fishing for salmon, rainbow trout, northern pike and more. We offer guided and unguided fishing packages as well as adventurous float trips. Our central location allows us to easily access the local rivers and streams. Upper and Lower Deshka, Willow and Little Willow Creeks, Kashwitna to name a few.With our custom jet boats we access even shallow waters that other boats can’t- a great way to experience the beauty of Alaska. The Deshka river is known for world class King Salmon fishing.
We offer fully guided fishing in our jet boats. With our location we can easily access any of the 300+ miles of navigable rivers and streams. To keep up with the migration of the 5 species of salmon, we provide the necessary spin fishing gear and lures (bait if needed) We’ll fish mainly off shore. We prefer 4 or less fisherman per boat and per guide. However if you are booking a single package you will most likely be sharing a boat with other clients.
Our unguided fishing provides you the necessary fishing gear in a stable flat bottom boat with a motor right from the comfort of the Lodge. You can fish at your on pace and return to take care of your catch or relax any time you choose. Located 1 mile from the mouth of the Deshka all the salmon on their journey to spawn pass right in front of the Lodge. The lower Deshka is slow moving easily navigated water. If you have never fished our river or are new to salmon fishing we can assist you with pointers, instruction, or consider a guided trip for at least a day to learn the techniques.
