If you are looking for an adventure and some great fishing, Deshka Wilderness Lodge is a perfect destination. Remotely located, you have to fly in from Anchorage on a pontoon plane, but once you are on site, Mike and Linda, who are your guides and hosts will make sure that you are well fed, well taken care of and most...

Mike and Linda were great hosts and guide. Lodge was comfortable and clean with everything we needed , including full bathrooms. The food was top notch and Linda asked how we liked it cooked and what we did not like. Fishing was great and all the equipment was in great condition.

My 84 year old father and I were looking for a small lodge in Alaska that had great fishing and was far away from the crowds. We could not have been happier with our choice. The owners, Mike and Linda, went out of their way to make sure we had a memorable trip. Even during the planning stages of our...

Mike knows the river and can get you on fish, while Linda provides excellent food. Their two labradors, Allie and Deshka are the best and I hated to say goodbye! I will be back for sure! If you are looking for excellent fly fishing and accomodations in the back country of Alaska, you can't do any better!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Deshka Wilderness Lodge provides great Alaskan wilderness fishing out of our remote fly-in lodge. Our packages are all inclusive and provide round trip air from Anchorage to our lodge in the remote Alaska outback. All meals are provided in our rustic riverfront dining room as bald eagles soar by outside and maybe even a moose will walk through the yard. Our guests are treated to fantastic Alaska fishing and our guides will take you out for a one of a kind salmon and trout fishing experience. Even with the remote location we are in our rooms are comfortably appointed with private baths. Guests can sit in our great room and read a good book as the fire crackles in our river rock fireplace. Or you can get online and check email or relax in you room to a good movie after a great day of fishing. ... more   less
