You might visit Mission Lodge the first time for the promise of incomparable fly-out sportfishing. You’ll return for that and so much more, including gourmet dining, private guest rooms, spa facilities, and attentive and amiable staff. And did we mention the view? Mission’s breathtaking setting in the wilderness of Lake Aleknagik and the mountains beyond make for an idyllic Alaska destination.
Mission Lodge is THE destination for remote luxury in the heart of Bristol Bay. Set on the shores of Lake Aleknagik, this is the ultimate fishing trip, the escape you’ve longed for. You’ll find unsurpassed trout and salmon fishing in a dramatic wilderness locale.
Our beautiful, modern lodge boasts large bay windows framing stunning views of the lake and mountains beyond. This is a rugged immense land of startling beauty – a great place to just step out of everyday pressures and relax.
An ideal location for small corporate meetings, business entertaining or personal vacations, well-traveled anglers will spot the gracious extras that make Mission Alaska’s top fly out fishing lodge.
The flight seeing is as good as the fishing. If bears are your thing, we can fly to Brooks Falls, perhaps the world’s most famous bear viewing spot. Hiking? We’ve got that, too. Wherever your wildest imagination takes you, dream adventures come true at Mission Lodge.
Our modern facility is an ideal site for small corporate meetings, business entertaining, or the highlight of any Alaskan vacation. The well traveled angler will recognize the extras that make a stay at Mission Lodge a trip of a lifetime.
Easy access, deluxe facilities and unsurpassed trophy fishing make Mission Lodge the classic Alaska fly out lodge experience. Sauna, Hot tub, sumptuous dining, a comfortable lounge and recreation area are added features of Mission Lodge.
A large deck surrounding the facility is just steps from the dock, float planes and boats. Large bay windows frame views of Lake Aleknagik and the beautiful mountains beyond. This is a rugged immense land of startling beauty – a great place to just step out of everyday pressures and relax. At the end of the day each guest retires to their own private room.
We’re proud to say that we are one of the only fishing lodges in Alaska where a private room is not only optional, but is standard. Sleep on a real bed in your own room with gorgeous lake views, cozy linens, and fluffy towels. You don’t have to hear your noisy fishing buddy or family member snoring next to you, and they don’t have to hear you. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? We think so too.
Bathroom facilities are just steps away in the lighted hallway from all of our rooms. For couples, we also have special suites available that have private en suite bathroom facilities as well.
Our location on Lake Aleknagik makes for a prime location to target the best of Bristol Bay including all five species of Pacific Salmon, stunning leopard rainbow trout, Arctic char and dolly varden, Northern pike, and more.
As part of our packages, we fly you to different fishing hot spots each day and target fish with both fly and/or conventional gear depending on our guests’ preferences. All of our guides are well versed in both fly and conventional methods.
We practice a strict catch and release policy on all of our freshwater resident species (trout, grayling, dolly varden, arctic char, lake trout, pike, etc.). However, if you’d like to keep some fresh salmon to bring home, we allow each of our guests to take up to 50 pounds of frozen salmon fillets (each of which is vacuum packed and flash frozen by our staff), and our guides will help you to determine with fish are best to keep.
