A Unique Experience in Silverking Lodge

Great lodge. Best price. Not for the weak angler, this is hard core salmon fishing. Good food, great staff. My 11th time there. I love this place! Self-guided trolling for salmon. We saw whales, sea lions, seals, bald eagles. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, amazing rainbows.
We went there as a day trip. Gorgeous boat trip, beautiful surroundings. We had a great seafood lunch served over daily news paper. They were cutting an amazing 40kg salmon. Might be a wonderful place for a fishing holliday. Worth visit.
I have been to Silverking lodge three times now. The fishing is great, the location is beautiful and secluded, sleeping accommodations are comfortable and clean, the food is top notch, and the staff are friendly. I highly recommend a visit there.

Beautiful scenery. Relaxing atmosphere! I especially loved the outdoor games they had aside from the wonderful staff. Ladderball, tetherball and a cute little boardwalk. I would suggest it to anyone!!!

When it comes to self-guided lodges in Alaska it gets no better than Silverking. Period. The crew is always top notch and they’re always looking to improve. They are truly down to earth and have become like family.

We have been offering self-guided fishing packages for anglers of all experience levels for more than 25 years. During those years, the team at Silverking Lodge has been helping people realize their dream of visiting the Last Frontier, resting and relaxing with family and friends, and searching out some of the most magnificent fish Alaska has to offer King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Chum Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Pink Salmon, Halibut, and Rock Fish.

Alaska Fishing Trip

Silverking Lodge’s proximity to Ketchikan makes it one of the easiest all-inclusive remote fishing lodges in Alaska to get to. Following the short 90-minute Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to Ketchikan, you’ll board an Alaskan bush plane for a 15-minute flight to Grant Island home of Silverking Lodge, the longest operating self-guided Alaskan fishing lodge in all of Southeast Alaska. We provide our guests a short orientation that details the area, salmon and bottom fishing techniques and equipment, boat operation, and safety before pointing you out on your adventure. Although hard to believe, you can find yourself fishing just hours after leaving your driveway!

grant island alaska fishing lodgeThe cool blue waters surrounding Grant Island provide a natural corridor for salmon returning to local rivers to spawn. Silver salmon, particularly, move in large numbers through the area every summer as they return to several natural spawning grounds and a local hatchery. Silvers (or Coho Salmon) can weigh up to 20 lbs. They are known for putting up a ferocious fight that includes spectacular acrobatic displays on the surface. When the Coho are not at their peak, you can vie for the prized Chinook Salmon, the Pink Salmon, Chum Salmon, or Sockeye Salmon. Halibut and rockfish species are also available June through September around the lodge.
