PERFECT 10! My wife and I stayed 8 nights in the couples apartment. It is well furnished, stocked with all the things you'll need to cook with. Have to comment on the shower what fun! Jeff and staff are A-1 when it comes to taking care of you and equipment which I must say is like everything else, top notch. You have your own privacy but, close to what's going on. Fishing was great even though this was our first time here do kind of a learning experience. We took home 83 pounds of salmon.

Once in a Lifetime Experience...Just wanted to thank you all for a great first-time ocean fishing experience for myself, my two sons and step-son. The fishing was phenomenal. The modern facilities were amazing. We all only traveled there with one carry on. That is all we needed...The new boats are furnished with all the tackle you should need...We each flew home with 100 lbs of mostly salmon, some halibut and rock fish that were cleaned, frozen in 50 lb boxes.

We had a great time unguided fishing in Alaska! I just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of us during our fishing trip. We had a great time, and your place is awesome. Since our trip, I've talked to a lot of people that have fished different areas in Alaska, including Ketchikan. I've googled some different lodges and I think I'd take your place over any of them. The setup is perfect...You have a special place, and I'll recommend it any chance I get.

Thank You and Your Excellent Staff...You and your staff met or exceeded all of our expectations...when we come in from a long day of fishing and dead tired, we don't have to then worry about fish processing….we can just go have a few 'toddies', cook our dinner, B.S. a bit and go to bed early.

We had a great time self-guided fishing! Just a wee note to thank you and your family and staff for the really great time we had when we were over there. Paul and I are discussing coming again next year but we are not sure if we will be able to both get over at the same time, if not we can probably organize two separate holidays. Hope everyone is having a good time and catching lots of fish.

I have fished all over Alaska and have fished at Chinook Shores many times...Chinook Shores is the best Alaska fishing area I've ever been to...Jeff takes pride in having his rods, reels, line, nets, boats/motors all in great shape...BTW, I am not an employee or family member of Chinook Shores. Just an avid fisherman who has fished all over Alaska and have never been treated better by a lodge owner, caught more fish, and had the ease of travel like I have had with Chinook Shores.

Very nice place to get away if you love to fish! Nadra and Jeff have a great place to come relax and catch salmon and halibut. The self guided fishing lets us do what we want when we want. The living quarters are very nice, modern and clean. The facilities, boats and fishing equipment are all top notch and everything you will need to have a great time.


An Amazing Southeast Alaska Fishing Lodge

Chinook Shores’ Alaska fishing lodge is located in southeast Alaska about 15 miles north of Ketchikan in Knudson Cove on the road system. Getting here is easy, you can fly from Seattle to Ketchikan in less than two hours on Alaskan Airlines. We’ll drive you to the lodge and you can start enjoying Alaska salmon and halibut fishing that same day. Our accommodations consist of five private beach houses with decks overlooking Knudson Cove.

Chinook Shores’ Alaska Fishing Lodge in Ketchikan makes the most of saltwater fishing for salmon and halibut in the calm waters of Southeast Alaska. Unguided or self-guided fishing in Alaska is truly rewarding and lets you fish on your own schedule, at your own pace. Unguided fishing in one of our custom built, 23′ aluminum hardtop rental boats gives you total freedom to fish and sight-see as you please all day long.

Chinook Shores was designed around a fisherman’s dream – A dream of going to the perfect fishing destination and having everything you could possibly need to have the trip of a lifetime on your own terms, your own schedule and fishing in your own self guided boat.

Our unique approach to guided charter fishing personalizes your Alaska fishing trip to suit your needs. Our fishing boats and private lodge accommodations are exclusive to your group so you lodge and fish with the friends and family that you came with. Ketchikan salmon fishing and Ketchikan halibut fishing can be done the same day on our full day guided charters.
