Deshka Wilderness Lodge is where your Alaskan fishing adventure begins. From the moment you arrive you will be greeted with fantastic scenery, wonderful accommodations, friendly hosts and great fishing!
Our fly-in location gets us faraway from the crowds and into some of the best remote river fishing south central Alaska has to offer. The Deshka is known as a premier river for King Salmon (Chinook) and Silver Salmon (Coho) as well as great runs of Pink Salmon (Humpies). Rainbow Trout abound in our river and there are opportunities to catch other fish like Chum (Dog) Salmon and Northern Pike.
Our lodge has a comfortable home like atmosphere and since WE TAKE ONLY FOUR GUESTS AT ANY TME you will receive plenty of personal attention from your hosts, Mike and Linda Yencha, not a staff hired by owners you may never even see. Mike and Linda have been in the lodging and guiding business for over thirty years now and have the experience needed to make your trip enjoyable, exciting and successful.
"Somebody just back of you while you are fishing is as bad as someone looking over your shoulder while you write a letter to your girl."
