Welcome to Tanaku Lodge, Alaska's best sport fishing lodge! We are located on the northern-most tip of the famed inside passage in the boardwalk community of Elfin Cove Alaska.
Our southeast Alaska location is well-known for its extraordinary fishing action and our Alaska lodge is renown for its superb guest services, four-star cuisine, excellent guiding staff and down-home hospitality!
Our Alaska lodge is the perfect vacation destination for those seeking an escape from the disquiet and break-neck tempo of city life. It doesn't take long for our guests to be transformed by the mixture of our friendly lodge services and the embracing quiet and pristine wilderness found here.
Our fresh air will intoxicate you, the abundant wildlife will thrill you, our epic glacial scenery will captivate you, and your fishing success will make you return with the migrating salmon each season!
Elfin Cove, Alaska is a small fishing community located on Chichagof Island. There are approximately ten residents who live here during the winter months, but this sleepy hollow comes to life during spring and summer due to the tremendous runs of ocean-brite salmon.
Yes, our 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 - Tanaku Lodge should be on your short-list of where to sport fish anywhere in the world!
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, and pink and coho salmon. The water is so crystal clear you can see the fish strike your fly or lure! Man Oh man, it just doesn't get better than this!
We are currently planning our 2012 season and want to encourage all prior guests, who haven't already secured their 2012 trip dates, and others planning their first vacation- to contact us soon! The reason for our encouragement is to make sure you are able to get your favorite Alaska Vacation dates (this is very important to us!). We expect an unusually high demand for trips to our lodge due to avid anglers and those planning their annual vacations to opt for stateside, rather than overseas, destinations.
To get a glimpse at just how awesome our Alaska sport fishing action is, check out the 'fishing action' section that highlights our guests angling success in 2007, or for a broader selection of photos, statistics and text highlighting our guests fishing success, visit the menu area and 'mouse over' the 'Fishing' Button and 'Fishing Action' menu option; here you will find offerings for our past seasons: 2000 thru 2007. Click on the year that interests you. A drop-down menu appears on each page offering a glimpse of our guest's weekly fishing action for the season you selected. Hopefully, we will be able to add photos of your Alaska fishing success to our website soon! Mousing over our 'Movie' button reveals a generous selection of slideshows, movies and special sections. The Larry Csonka section has some great film footage of Number 39 enjoying an exciting fishing vacation at our lodge. Enjoy!
Our dedicated goal and 100% focus is to assure each guest vacationing with us has a wonderful Alaska lodge and sportfishing experience. We hope to have the pleasure of sharing our world-class Alaska sport fishing lodge !
