Alaska’s Anvik River Lodge is located in the middle Yukon area of the state in Western Alaska. We have a privately owned 5-acre parcel of land & are surrounded by federal lands, making us the only fishing lodge on the entire river. The lodge itself is located about 75 miles up the Anvik River from the confluence of the Yukon and Anvik Rivers. To give you a little better idea of our location - as the crow flies - we’re about 450 miles northwest of Anchorage or 130 miles SE of Nome across the Nulato Range which protects us from the inclement coastal weather found in the Nome & Unalakleet area.
Unlike the crowded Cook Inlet-Kenai region with its 600+ guide businesses that utilize an area smaller than the state of Washington, or the famous Bristol Bay region with its 250+ guide businesses, some of which are located in what seems like just a stones throw away from each other, the freshwater fishing operators in the Arctic/Yukon/Upper Kuskokwim region are spread throughout an area that is geographically almost as large as one half the size of the continental United States.
As you can imagine, the challenges of running such a remote operation can be daunting to most business owners. But, rest assured that since we’ve lived almost 35 years in Western Alaska we know how to get things done and can jump any hurdles that may stand in the way of providing you with the best vacation possible.
