Located on the internationally acclaimed Tsiu (sigh-you) River, Alaska Expedition Lodge allows guests to sight-cast to thousands of chrome-bright aggressive silver salmon fresh out of the surf from the Gulf of Alaska. Time tested, well-built facilities and dependable equipment along with knowledgeable, experienced staff relieves you of any safety concerns in this immense wild country. The silver run on the Tsiu is a strong, long-lasting run that occurs from early August-October.
Silvers fight their way in from the crashing surf and travel up-river a short distance to many different deep water holding areas. The river has a sand and gravel bottom and is not particularly swift, so wading is simple and safe. The lack of trees or brush near the river makes casting easy.
The 65-foot, log main lodge features solid teak dining tables and chairs. Comfortable private cabins await guests when they return from the river. Electric heaters warm the cabin and a private bathroom ensures a hot refreshing shower after fishing. Wide boardwalks connect the cabins to the lodge.
8- or 9-wt. fly-rods are preferred with high-capacity reels (to accommodate those long rocket runs!) and medium-weight casting and spinning gear. We will provide you with a complete gear list including the type of flies and lures that will bring you the most success.
From Anchorage, charter flights will be arranged by the outfitter to Cordova, AK. The scenic flight over Prince William Sound and surrounding mountains is extraordinary. Once in Cordova, you’ll load into the lodge plane for the final approach. You’ll land on The firm, sandy beach next to the Tsiu River which provides a perfect landing strip for the plane and is an exciting finale to your journey. This is truly an Alaska bush experience! If you are a duck hunter, they offer a super combo salmon/duck adventure after September 1.
$5,250 per person for a 7-day fishing or combination fishing/duck hunting stay after Sept. 1. The season runs from August to mid-October. Air charter fee is not included and is handled separately. The normal fee for round-trip service to the lodge from Anchorage is approximately $650.
