The Most Popular Fishing Lodge in Alaska

Gift Wrap a Fish and Fly FREE to Alaska!

In 1912, pioneers founded a wild Alaska salmon cannery near Ketchikan on 52 acres of wilderness by a seaside waterfall on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island, a location known for generations in native legends for some of the best Alaska fishing spots ever. That cannery went on to break world records for the sheer volume of seafood it caught and exported all over the globe.

More than 100 years later the renovated historic cannery is now home to the all-inclusive legendary sport fishing destination Waterfall Resort, and has hosted more than 50,000 guests, making it the most popular fishing lodge in Alaska. Come join the fun, and catch the adventure!

All-Inclusive Legendary Sport Fishing

Three words define what makes Waterfall Resort the top fishing spot for wild Alaska king salmon, silver salmon, halibut and more: location, location, location!

The annual return of salmon schools to our unique location on Prince of Wales Island adjacent to Alaska’s famous Inside Passage gives Waterfall Resort its reputation for legendary sport fishing. Access to and from the Resort is by sea plane charter from Ketchikan, AK (just 90 minutes from Seattle). Waterfall Resort offers all-inclusive guided sport fishing for more than 20 varieties of Alaska sport fish, including rich populations of king salmon, halibut, silver salmon (Coho), ling cod, yelloweye, rockfish and more!

Waterfall Resort is enjoyed by anglers of all skill levels, from vacationing families with kids new to the sport, to avid celebrities and professional athletes. Waterfall Resort is also the ideal “outside the box” venue for corporate events and non-profit fundraisers.

In the early 1900's, Waterfall was the largest salmon packing plant on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island. Like most canneries in Alaska, this remote operation on the Ulloa Channel was a complete, self- sufficient, temporary community. When the season was over, all but a few workers departed until the next summer's migration.

"For the last 28 years, Waterfall Resort has been our incentive/business destination of choice."
-Rich de Frank, Ford Motor Co.
"Waterfall Resort is one of those special places that words could never adequately describe."
