Guided Fishing:

Redoubt Mountain Lodge, Lake Clark National Park

One of our fantastic partners in guided fly-out fishing is a luxury lodge on the shore of Crescent Lake. Located across Cook Inlet in Lake Clark National Park the flight to the lodge passes mountain ranges and active volcanoes. Redoubt Mountain Lodge sits in the heart of the Alaska Range of Mountains on the glacier-fed waters of Crescent Lake. Its namesake, Redoubt Volcano, is only 8 miles from the lodge and offers a surreal backdrop to an already stunning setting. Fish by boat or from shore around the lake & river for Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon Arctic Char, DollyVarden & Lake Trout.

Full Day Trip

At $675 per person, our guided full-day trip to Redoubt Mountain Lodge is available from June through September. Multiple species are available for anglers depending on the time of year and it is common to take home a number of freshly caught salmon.  Fishing is with experienced guides both from boats in the Crescent River and along the shore of the lake. Take a mid-day break and enjoy a lunch at the lodge while taking in the spectacular scenery around you.

This trip includes: floatplane transport, fishing guide, boat with driver, fishing gear (rods, reel and tackle), cleaning, filleting & vacuum sealing of salmon, a gourmet lodge lunch along with snacks and drinks to keep you fueled throughout the day.  Hiking, photography & bear/wildlife viewing available.
