Deshka Wilderness Lodge
The Deshka River starts at the foot of the Alaska Range and is a clear water river, not glacier fed. The Deshka is a premier Alaska freshwater river. It is well known for its great runs of King salmon (Chinook) and Silver salmon (Coho)as well as large numbers of Rainbow Trout. The river also has large runs of Pink Salmon on even years plus opportunities to fish for Grayling and Northern Pike. The Deshka is true Alaska fishing.
The lodge location on the river above the rock garden offers isolation from the crowds and remote fishing. Their jet boats give them access to miles of river and side streams. They are able to offer their guests a choice of fishing from the boat or wade fishing. Not only will you experience great river fishing and spectacular Alaskan scenery, but you may even be lucky enough to see brown bears, moose, eagles and other wildlife while spending the day on the river.
Right out the door of the lodge you can fish from shore and hook into a mighty king salmon. Or take a walk around the bend and fish the riffles leading to the pool below. There is no telling what you may catch depending on the time of year.
Accommodations & Dining
Accommodations for their guests in the lodge consist of clean, comfortable rooms with private baths. The rooms are comfortably furnished with power and running water twenty four hours a day. Bedrooms have a full and a single bed in them and are based on double occupancy. Each room has its own private bath with shower, sink and toilet. All linens are provided. Each bedroom also offers a TV and DVD player for your private entertainment.
After a great day of fishing you can unwind and relax in the newly renovated great room. Guests can enjoy sitting around the wood-burning fireplace, or curl up on the couch with a with a good book. Either way you will have plenty of comfort and room to relax after a day of Alaska fishing.
Appetizers await you back at the lodge after a full day fishing, and meals are served in the beautiful dining room in a cozy, relaxing atmosphere. All the meals are hearty, and home cooked. If you walk away from the table hungry you have no one to blame but yourself! Breakfast is served early so fishermen are on the river at the optimum time. Shore lunches are provided so you can stay out in the hotspots and keep fishing. Dinner is served early enough in the evening so if you wanted to grab your fishing rod and go back out front and fish some more you have plenty of time.
