Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Expedition in Yakutat, Alaska

Diericks Tsiu River Lodge, AK


We are a full-service lodge that offers the best top-water, shallow-water silver salmon fishing in Alaska, and we have been in operation for 15 years. After a full day of fishing, sit back for a great meal cooked by our chef, and relax in our fly-tying recreation room or your cabin. Each cabin has electricity 24 hours a day and hot showers.

Date Range

Our dates of operation are August 8 thru October 10.

What is Provided to Customer

We have all rods and reels for clients to use, and we have a large assortment of flies we sell.

Region/Terrain Where You Fish

We access the river from the lodge via four-wheelers. We pull custom-built aluminum trailers with seats on them to the riverbank. We have no need for boats as you can wade anywhere in the slow-moving river, which means great top-water fishing!

Temperatures range between 40 to 65 degrees. Bring your rain gear and chest waders. The weather is usually better in August, and the days are longer than in September.
