All fishing equipment is provided as part of your Waterfall Resort fishing package, including Almar Cabin Cruisers, High Performance Rods and Shimano Reels and (most importantly) the best professional Alaska fishing guides!
A well-planned Alaskan fishing trip can become a disaster without the right equipment and experienced fishing guides and a resort staff dedicated to ensuring your precious time away is maximized from the minute you step off the plane to when you are ready to return home.
When you arrive, you will be assigned a Guide and a Cabin Cruiser for the duration of your stay and we place only 4 Guests per Boat to ensure the most enjoyable Alaska Sportfishing Experience.
At Waterfall Resort on Prince of Wales Island, we have over 27 years of experience hosting successful Alaska fishing trips for thousands of valued Guests who have visited us from all over the world.
Key to our many years of success is our commitment to providing the best fleet of Cabin Cruisers, top-of-the-line Fishing Gear and perhaps, most importantly, a dedicated Team of expert fishing guides who know how to find Trophy-Size Salmon, Halibut and Ling-Cod for your catch.

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.
