Alaska Fly Fishing
Remote Alaska Fly Fishing Lodge on the Hoodoo River
When you think of fly fishing in Alaska, images of primal beauty take shape in your imagination punctuated by hard fighting fish too numerous to count. In those images is a sense of something pristine and untouched, where isolation and solitude allow for focus and a clearing of the mind.
The Hoodoo River on the Alaska Peninsula is one of the State’s last untouched sport fishing destinations, and one of the only places where fly fishing for king salmon is suitable. In fact, fishing at the lodge is fast and furious for kings, silvers, reds, and chums, with very few pinks in between.
This is the Alaska you’ve dreamed about, and at Hoodoo Sport Fishing we combine luxury accommodations among the wilds of America’s last frontier. Our backyard is one of the most remote places on earth where you will enjoy fly fishing without the presence of any other lodges, anglers, or competition for prime water.
Our fly fishing lodge offers something unique – it sits on privately owned land overlooking the Hoodoo River. Our fly fishing lodge is surrounded by the Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge, and the backdrop is the Alaska you’ve always conjured in your mind’s eye. Because we are the only lodge on the river it is very difficult for anyone else to travel to our location, and for this reason you will have the entire waterway to yourself.
The Backdrop of our Alaska Fly Fishing Lodge
In a word, the Alaska Peninsula is primal. This is a land unspoiled by progress, where broad ranges of mountains spill out in every direction. This land is alive, and in many ways is still finding definition. Active volcanoes give way to broad valleys teeming with wildlife and crystal clear waters, and glaciers carved both the fjords and the lakes that lie further inland.
The local’s name for both the river and the lake is “Hoodoo,” and the river flows 35 miles from the lake into the Bering Sea. Our Alaska fly fishing lodge is nestled into this stunning landscape approximately 10 miles from the ocean.
Finding fish requires little more than a short jaunt from the backdoor of the lodge. The Hoodoo River boasts incredible fishing for ocean bright Chinook (King), Sockeye (Red), and Coho (Silver) salmon. These are not lazy, spawning fish at the end of their cycle. These are hard fishing, dime-bright salmon that will challenge any angler, seasoned or novice.
At certain times of the year there may be other species of gamefish in the river, which can afford anglers the opportunity to do some fly fishing that is out of the ordinary. However, our focus is always putting you on the hardest fighting, largest fish in the river, so that you can get a real taste of what real remote fishing is like.

I’ve come all this way to fish for ocean-bright king salmon on a river that was sport-fished for the first time, ever, the previous year. Finding a “new” stream is almost unheard of, and from the snippets of reports I’d received from those first adventurous anglers, this one had remarkable potential. I was pumped! ...Read More
