Prince of Wales Island Fishing Lodge Resort
The lodge is an old commercial salmon cannery, originally built in 1912. It has been recently renovated, and all accommodations have ocean or forest views, private baths, and in-room conveniences such as coffee/tea makers, mini-fridges, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Amenities also include daily housekeeping and ice delivery. And every room and suite is within walking distance (or a courtesy golf-cart ride) of the docks, Dining Room, and Lagoon Saloon. Nonsmoker? Ask for one of our nonsmoking rooms.
The area is a natural confluence of ocean currents and the rocky coast of the island attract huge swarms of bait fish attracting halibut, rockfish, ling cod and of course salmon. The salmon gorge themselves here on there way to the spawning grounds. Not only do the fish thrive in this environment but they also share the environment with whales, bears, sea otters and blacktail deer. Exciting wildlife viewing is definitely a part of the adventure.
Bring home lots of fresh salmon and halibut.
Figure that the price of fresh caught salmon and halibut can be over $30 a pound, and you can bring back two boxes weighing up to 70 pounds. It is cheaper to go on a trip of a lifetime, stay in 5 star accommodations, eat gourmet meals of fresh caught seafood and delicious steaks with Pacific coast wines to wash it down. If you are an avid fishing junkie like me it is a no brainer.
The expert staff will fillet your catch into the tastiest steaks.
Then they’ll be flash frozen and vacuum packed and placed in wet locked boxes for the trip home. When it’s time to go home an onsite Alaska Airlines agent tags your boxes along with your luggage to make it a stress fee departure.
