Mission Lodge in Western Bristol Bay Alaska
Mission Lodge is easily considered to be Alaska’s finest fly-out lodge operation. Located in the heart of the Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska, we are within easy flying distance to the finest waters in the state. Depending on the week we target five species of Pacific Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, Arctic Grayling, Lake Trout and Northern Pike and most any combination thereof. If you and your group are interested in a first class luxury experience, without comprising great fishing, this may well be your kind of place. We are committed to providing the best service possible with the ultimate goal being to have fun while catching lots of fish!



Mission Lodge is a warm, 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.



Mission Lodge is located on the shores of Lake Aleknagik in the heart of the world famous Bristol Bay region of Southwest Alaska.



This area offers unsurpassed trophy fishing for Salmon and Trout we explore in spectacular wilderness settings.



Converted in 1984 from an abandoned [missionary] boarding school, dating back to the fifties, the lodge has evolved into simple the best.




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.


At Mission Lodge we have a wide variety of Alaskan fish species to chase after. Some of these are referred to as our native species, which in essence are the non-ocean going fish. The rest are the Pacific salmon species which we are targeting in or close to the tidewater as they first enter the rivers and streams of Bristol Bay Alaska.


We are fortunate to have a number of locations throughout the region available for you to fish that include private leases, tribal lands, State and National Parks and Refuges. You will fish everything from tiny feeder creeks, meandering streams, large connector rivers and inlets and outlets of lakes. The actual bay itself is too severe to comfortably sport fish, so we target bright salmon in the comfort of the tidal zones of the rivers that dump into it.


Over the last couple of years we have remodeled the entire lodge from top to bottom. The goal of this ambitious project was to not only freshen up the look, but to better serve the needs of our clients. With our industry leading repeat clientele, it was very exciting to show off the ‘big reveal’ each week to our extended family of friends that call this a second home. All their concerns of changing the feel and ambiance were swiftly forgotten as we were very careful in designing warm, inviting spaces that function on all levels. We are still one of the only Alaska lodges to offer single, private rooms. The remodel also placed a lot of focus on the needs of our couples and female anglers with enhanced suites and spacious bathrooms. It is harder than ever to leave.
