Fishing & Guided Activities

Saltwater Fishing

The Southeast Alaska fishing trips at Dove Island Lodge depart daily on board fully outfitted charter fishing vessels. The lodge guides will take you to the fishing hotspots and return each evening to the comfort and luxury of Dove Island Lodge. The charter boats range from 28-foot SeaSports to a 40-foot motor-yacht. Only four anglers fish from the SeaSports to ensure the ultimate in fast action on your Alaska fishing charter. The 40-foot yacht is used for special overnight excursions or daily eco-tours. Dove Island Lodge also uses a 34-1/2-foot Coldwater vessel with an 11-foot beam, boasting a full walk-around platform. This boat easily cruises at 30-knots and can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers while still providing 15-feet of space between each fisherman. It also offers spacious cabin seating and a full stand-up private head.

Freshwater Fishing

The freshwater fishing program centers on the lodge's DeHaviland Beaver floatplane. This aircraft was built in Canada and designed to do one thing; fly heavy loads off of short airstrips or short-water takeoffs. This aircraft gives Dove Island Lodge the flexibility to carry up to seven people to remote lakes, streams, and bays sometimes not accessible by boat. Having a float plane available for freshwater fly outs is unique for an ocean-based lodge in Alaska. Fly fishing the freshwater rivers in Alaska defines the purity of the sport, and often times your only company on the trip will be bears, bald eagles, and other wildlife.
