Fishing Program

After breakfast, you’ll wader up and meet your guide on the dock, where your rods and gear will be loaded onto one of our DeHavilland Beaver floatplanes. Typically, the flights are between 5 and 20 minutes in length. While short, they provide the opportunity to take in the remarkable beauty of Alaska from the air, something you’ll never forget.

Once you’ve landed, there are three ways to access the fishing, depending on the river: hiking, small rafts and jet boats. The 8-hour day includes a streamside lunch that always includes one of our signature home-made soups. After returning to the lodge, you’ll be greeted at the dock with our traditional brandy before heading to your cabin or our wood-fired sauna. Before dinner, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served, and plans for next day’s fishing will be discussed with your guide. One final note: Our guides and pilots are among the best and most experienced in Alaska. They are key components to why Enchanted Lake is regarded as one of the foremost lodges in the world.
