Skwentna Alaska Fishing Vacation

Alaska is full of spectacular scenery, incredible wildlife, and rich history. Known for its world-class fishing, Northwoods Lodge is a place to visit during your Alaska fishing vacation. You will be able to catch king salmon, pink salmon, sockeye salmon, silver salmon, rainbow trout, and so much more. The area features the Skwentna River and Yentna River that produces many lakes and small streams that host all five species of salmon in Alaska. On your Alaska fishing vacation, you will be able to venture out with a professional fishing guide and lure in the perfect catch during your fishing adventure.


The isolated town of Skwentna is a gorgeous place in Alaska only accessible by water, air, or dog sled. It is the official checkpoint on the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome each March. Throughout the winter Skwentna is a favorite spot for weekend snowmachine adventures, dog teams, fat bikers, and cross-country skiers, and in the summer it is a hot-spot for fishing. Northwoods Lodge takes advantage of this fantastic fishing on Fish Lakes Creek, located 15-miles downriver from Skwentna. We also fish up to six other Alaska Creeks within boating distance of our fishing lodge such as Lake Creek which runs 60 miles north to south from Chelatna Lake in the Alaska Mountain Range to the Yentna River.
