Self-guided salmon and halibut fishing in remote Southeast Alaska
Welcome to Salmon Run! We are a family owned and operated, self-guided fishing lodge located in Excursion Inlet in southeast Alaska. We specialize in small groups of up to 16 people and offer customizable Alaskan experiences tailored to each guest's skill level and needs. We're not just a fishing lodge, we offer the full Alaskan experience!
Located just 40 miles west of the state's capital, Juneau, guests are transported via float plane to our remote location in Excursion Inlet. The trip is approximately 30 minutes long with incredible low flying views of the Alaskan wilderness. Watch for mountain goats climbing on the mountain peaks, brown bears fishing in untouched streams, moose grazing in the marshes, humpback whales feeding along the coast lines and so much more!
We are located in the perfect spot for prime halibut AND salmon fishing. And the best part? You won't be travelling for miles before reaching these fantastic fishing spots. Both halibut and salmon can be caught mere feet from our private dock! Many guests have spent their first night spin casting off the dock for salmon with great success! Both the most and the least experienced of fishermen and women can count on a wonderfully successful fishing trip with the healthy fish populations and individual attention and care that we are able to provide due to our smaller size.
As we said before, we are not JUST a fishing lodge. We have a passion for this gorgeous state, the wildlife that call it home, and the sense of wonder it instills in people from all walks of life.
We're excited to share this place and this passion.
Hope to see you soon!

Now booking for 2022 AND 2023!
Definitely a one-of a kind experience! The location is beautiful and surprising. Not what you think of when you think Alaska. The Lodge is beautiful, and cozy. The Copingas go out of their way to make you feel at home, and make the trip unforgettable. I took my 8 month old baby, and was worried about being able to pack enough diapers for the entire week. Kim offered to pick some up on her shopping trip to Juneau. Amazing service! Besides providing everything for the fishing experience, they directed us to some great sight seeing on the surrounding islands. Truly an unforgettable place.
More than a fishing lodge. While we were there we seen many humpback whales, a few killer whales, sea lions, sea otters, watched bald eagles swoop down from the trees and grab fish out the water, went fishing and crabbing and explored the coastline. All of the gear, boats and whatever else you need is provided to have a great week. They feed you well and as everybody else has said, you feel like family when you are here. I couldn't have asked for more in the week I spent at Salmon Run. I can't wait to go back.
This is an amazing lodge with incredible people operating it! The family run operation makes your vacation feel like visiting family, in a great way, and we were all sad when it was time to go. I could not give a higher recommendation for an amazing experience and to go to get some Alaskan fish!
Excellent Lodge!!! Watching whale's from the front deck, fly fishing the Neva river a mile away, Salmon, halibut, Crab, Rock fish, etc. And wonderful host's!!! great week of fun!!!
If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway from the crazy busy life this is the place. You will never find more friendly and kind people that make you feel like old friends. I can I guarantee you’ll be trying to figure out how to come back before you leave. Thank you for one of the best vacations ever.
If you are considering Alaska, GO! It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. If you are considering fishing, go to Salmon Run! I can not recommend them highly enough!!! We wanted for nothing the entire week we were there, we ate well, played hard, had great conversation and made lifetime friends! We had the best time ever and we will do it again 💯!
I couldn't possibly express in words how incredible this lodge and the people operating it are! I came feeling like a welcome guest and left feeling like family with a lot of fish and memories to last a lifetime! We all loved this family owned and operated business and give it our highest recommendation!!!
I experienced a opportunity of a lifetime in Alaska while reuniting with fellow Teammates at Salmon Run Lodge. The Lodge is absolutely beautiful. The interior design is wide open and very comfortable. It's knotty pine floors, spiral log staircase and large stone fireplace encourages a family atmosphere. The fishing was great the scenery amazing but the Staff.....well there really isn't much more one could ask fore. Simply amazing! Hardworking, passionate and family oriented! This family run operation is second to none! Mr. Jeff, Makayla, Jake, Haile and Jessy i commend you all on a job well done. You guys are the reason that our stay was a success! Salmon Run is a must stay and I highly recommend them. Salmon Run is a landmark!
I can't say enough good things about this trip. I have been on guided Alaskan fishing trips before but this one takes the cake. it's self guided so you get to take the boat out whenever you want for as long as you want, the lodge is family run by the best people, the food was amazing. You can watch seals, whales, otters and eagles while you fish. They process and freeze your catch daily then box it up for the trip home. I highly recommend this lodge. Very family oriented. I give them 100 stars it was seriously fantastic.
