The Stepaniks with a nice mix of silvers, pinks and rockfish.
This week was great for salmon fishing at Alaska’s Boardwalk lodge. On freshwater streams, such as the Thorne River and Staney Creek, increasing numbers of silver salmon (aka coho salmon) are starting to make their appearance. The streams were choked with pink and chum salmon until a recent hard rain had them on the move upstream.
The Crowells with another mix of silver and pink salmon.
"Boardwalk is a very well run lodge. The staff are without exception friendly, cheerful and helpful. It is a fisherman’s paradise and if you need to know anything about fishing it is the place to come."

"This was a wonderful lodge experience. The service, food, and lodgings were superb. We caught a ton of fish and had a ball. We will certainly be back next year."
- John Jenkins, Texas
"This trip was one of the nicest trips I have ever been on. As a trip to bring customers, it was a great use of sales budget and if customers like to fish, it is perfect."
- Francis "Butch" Mickus, Washington
"The vacation my family had at Boardwalk Lodge was absolutely the best we have yet to experience. We were there a week and not one of the four of us wanted to leave. I can't wait to go back for a longer stay!"
- Mike Murry, Texas

All Inclusive. From gourmet dining to the finest fishing gear, the Alaska's Boardwalk Lodge adventure is all-inclusive from our dock. Your stay includes professional guides for freshwater fishing as well as USCG trained captains for saltwater fishing excursions, plus a support staff to see that your needs are met.
Lodge Acclaim. The lodge receives praise from clients and media alike each year. Our exceptional staff and facilities have been recognized with three "Lodge of the Year" awards — recently including the Sporting Classics 2010 Lodge of the Year honor for worldwide fishing destinations.
Nearby Waterways. Lodge guides have easy access to some of the hottest fishing holes in Southeast Alaska. Boardwalk guides are licensed for 23 lakes, rivers and streams on breathtaking Prince of Wales Island, Alaska. Solitary fishing trips are typically accessed by Suburban, so fly-outs are unnecessary.
Fishing Pressure. There is none! Unlike the Kenai and other combat-fishing destinations, fishing in our waterways is peaceful — allowing you to enjoy the magnificent scenery as nature intended. Many of these waters are only fished when our guests venture out, so you to cast and catch in solitude.
Adventures and Eco Tours. When fishing arms grow tired, you can spend a relaxing afternoon on any number of guided excursions. Guided activities include whale watching, kayaking, spelunking, biking and hiking to name a few. You can also visit the bear observatory or tour Kassan totem Indian village.
