Fishing with Island Lodge
Lake Clark is home to many species of fish that are fun and challenging to catch. A stay at Island Lodge can include fishing every day, a combination of fishing and other activities, or no fishing at all! A typical day of fishing might go like this:
After a hearty breakfast you'll head out with a knowledgeable and experienced guide in one of our 18 foot boats, powered by a 50 hp engine. You might start at the head of Lake Clark, fishing the streams that enter the lake for Arctic Grayling and Arctic Char. After a morning of excellent fishing you’ll have lunch—either a shore lunch featuring your catch, or a delicious meal, packed for you by our kitchen staff. In the afternoon—you may try for the ferocious Northern Pike, or possibly troll for that lunker Lake Trout. Sometimes we are distracted from fishing by wildlife that happens by, or by a hike to some waterfalls. By late afternoon the sauna at the lodge will be fired up and waiting for your return. Appetizers and dinner are served in the main lodge and the evening concludes with lots of fish stories!
All equipment and guides are included in the cost of your stay, with the exception of hip boots or waders. Please note that felt-soled and metal cleated waders or boots are not allowed. You are welcome to bring your own personal fishing gear if you desire.
