If you’re looking for untouched wilderness to complement your fishing, the Goodnews River Lodge is the place to visit for Goodnews River fishing.
The Goodnews River is located in a remote corner of Southwest Alaska about 475 miles from Anchorage, and runs through the pristine Togiak National Wildlife Refuge. Since the Goodnews River Lodge is the ONLY full service lodge on the entire three branch river system, you will experience the solitude and peaceful beauty of Alaska as it should be. It’s just you and the fish. No crowds, no flying to the “best” river. It’s all here on the Goodnews River, and It’s all yours to enjoy.
The three forks of the Goodnews River flow out of the Ahklun Mountains, and wander through the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as they make their way to the Bering Sea. There are over 490 miles of fish-able streams, braids, creeks and river branches for you to enjoy, all without seeing another angler. The Lodge itself is located on the North Fork of the river, which is the main branch, right at the upper edge of tidewater, and just 7 miles from Goodnews Bay. From there our jet boats can easily access all 3 forks of the river, as well as the lower tidewater sections. Chrome bright Salmon, most still with sea lice, are the norm. These fish are fresh and feisty, and will challenge your angling skills. Resident leopard rainbows and grayling live in all areas of the river, and follow the salmon upriver as they get ready for their spawning rituals. It’s a river system as nature intended, with no trace of human interference, and the only way to enjoy all that the river has to offer is a stay at the Goodnews River Lodge.
Fish species include king, sockeye, chum, pink, and silver salmon, leopard rainbow trout, Arctic grayling, and Dolly varden. Fishing here is amazing- come see for yourself!
