Beartracks Lodge Alaska
The fishing just doesn't get any better, the air just doesn't get any fresher, the relaxing just doesn't get any relaxier and you just won't believe how really nice a fishing vacation can be until you join us at Beartracks Lodge in Alaska and fish and fish and fish and fish until the stress is all gone and until you've taken so many photos of everything that your camera battery is dead. Welcome Beartracks Lodge, Alaska and thanks for dropping by to see our website.

We fish the midpoint of the Talachulitna River in Southcentral Alaska.  The Talachulitna was the first stream in Alaska to be designated exclusively as a catch and release river for Rainbow Trout. Dry fly hungry Arctic Grayling are also native. This fishing river offers extremely strong runs of all five species of Pacific Salmon.

Located less than an hour's bush plane flight from Anchorage, our lodge caters to anglers looking to enjoy the beauty and solitude of Alaska while enjoying the personal service that provides the flexibility to create your vacation.

Built from hand hewn logs, Beartracks offers first class amenities in a rustic atmosphere.

      Our cabins are comfortable, the showers hot, and we prepare delicious family-style meals with fresh baked breads and desserts. If you have diet restrictions or have a craving, please let us know.      As our guest, you'll experience the finest fishing of your life. We accommodate private groups up to four fishermen. This way, our guides take out two or three anglers per boat and concentrate on giving you personal attention.

Each morning, with your guide, you'll glide safely up the river in a flat-bottom jet boat. Within 15 miles, you'll come upon prime waters and proven holes. Our guides are experienced and generous with their knowledge, so you'll get plenty of help and hook-ups.

During your stay, receive lessons or feel free to tie your own fly or create a spinner at our fully stocked bench. Nothing beats catching a fish on a pattern that you have hand made.

The native fish in this river include five species of Pacific Salmon, catch and release Rainbow Trout and dry fly hungry Arctic Grayling. Expect to catch a variety. We will clean, package and freeze the fish for you to bring home.

The Talachulitna is a sport fishing river, whereby the State of Alaska requires the use of a single hook and artificial bait for all fish, and the release of all Rainbow Trout. The result: big beautiful Rainbows and more of them!

All five species of Pacific Salmon may be kept in accordance with the Fish and Game Laws of the State of Alaska.
