Tower Rock Lodge, AK

Overview

The Kenai Peninsula is home to the most diverse fishing in all of Alaska: halibut, rockfish; four species of salmon (kings, sockeye, silvers, pinks); steelhead and trophy rainbow trout; Dolly Varden and the predatory pike. Tower Rock Lodge is ideally located on the banks of the lower Kenai River giving you access to ocean-bright salmon and magnum sized rainbow trout. We offer fly-outs to multiple destinations, ocean excursions and tons of other options such as fishing from drift boats on the Kasilof River to walk-in adventures on our small coastal streams. Variety and choices is what we are all about!

You will be custom fitted in our Orvis chest waders/boots and rain gear; matched personally your choice of single handed or Spey fly-rods; spin and/or bait-casters; centerpinning...try'em all if you wish! You will do it all...from novice to the well-seasoned pro, we got you covered from head to toe! You don't need to pack a thing, we even provide free airport pick-up, a free loaner vehicle for the week and that includes gas! Just call Griff (800) 284-3474 and lets start rocking.

Join us this season and let your Alaska adventure begin!

Itinerary

Sample of Typical Itinerary

Your Alaskan adventure begins in Anchorage. From there you will have the option to either take a regional flight straight to Kenai Airport (huge time and money savings) or drive a rental car from Anchorage to Tower Rock (approximately 3.5 hours, but dubbed one of "America's most scenic drives"). Complimentary airport transportation to and from the lodge is provided. If you need a vehicle during your stay (exploring the area, halibut trips, etc.) Tower Rock will hook you up with a fully insured SUV (fuel is on us!). Below is a sample week long itinerary.
