The Lodge and Wildlife

The lodge is the perfect vacation destination as it doesn’t take long for guests to be transformed by the mixture of friendly lodge services, the embracing quiet, and pristine wilderness. The fresh air will intoxicate you, the abundant wildlife will thrill you, the epic glacial scenery will captivate you, and your fishing success will make you return with the migrating salmon each season!

Tanaku Lodge is a traditional structure with an all wood interior. The mixture of cedar, pine, Alaskan art, vaulted ceilings, wood burning stove, and the wonderful lodge staff combine to create a cozy lodge atmosphere that invites relaxation.

Wrap-around windows and outdoor decks provide you with excellent views of Elfin Cove and the Fairweather Mountain Range. The views are truly awe-inspiring. The air is so clean and invigorating, and the lifestyle so uncluttered and free-spirited, guests feel relaxed and renewed, finding it difficult to leave this sportfishing paradise. Each day, when you return from your fishing expedition, you will take in the bald eagles flying by the dozens in the cove. Watch the action at the docks as the big fish of the day are weighed, and take in the gorgeous landscapes of Elfin Cove. Among the majestic landscapes, you will also see plenty of whales, otters, birds, and bears, so bring your camera to capture these amazing moments!

The Fishing

Fertile waters provide you with a virtual bonanza of fishing action and plenty of angling options! Whether your orientation is fly fishing with an emphasis on catch and release or hot and heavy saltwater angling with a desire to take home boxes of fresh/frozen fillets and steaks – the experience at Tanaku is for you! Elfin Cove will not disappoint, and you can chase a trophy king, vertical jig a silver, or catch a barn door halibut. Claim your spot on “The Board” with your large catch, and plan to take home fresh packed fish.

There are a number of streams and rivers nearby where you can match your fly, bait, or lure casting expertise against lively Dolly Varden trout, pink and coho salmon. The water is so crystal clear you can see the fish strike your fly or lure! It just doesn’t get better than this!

Getting There

Plan to fly to Seattle, then to Juneau. From Juneau, a Float Plane will be arranged to pick you up in Juneau to take you to the Lodge. The flight from Juneau, Alaska to Elfin Cove is an exciting and scenic adventure! You’ll enjoy viewing humpback whales, mountain goats, rugged terrain, unspoiled snow-capped mountains, glaciers, and numerous islands while flying to the tiny Alaska village.

There are certainly lots of good times and fantastic fishing action to look forward to. Tanaku Lodge does not disappoint!
