  Welcome to
Big Dave's Alaskan Bush Lodge

A spectacular  floatplane flight from Anchorage, up the Yentna drainage, just outside of the Denali Park Reserve. Here you will leave the 21st Century behind. Our private river front cabins are located 110 air miles NW of Anchorage overlooking the beautiful  Kichatna River.

The lodge sits on the southern end of the Yenlo Mountains. On a clear day, we have spectacular views of the Kichatna Mountains, the Alaska Range, Mt. McKinley, Mt. Foraker, Mt. Russel, and Mt. Dall. Our location is a photographers dream with epic mountain views, bear, moose and the occasional wolf.

Our remote location allows us to fish over a dozen clear water streams loaded with all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden and Arctic Grayling. You and your friends may want to spend an afternoon targeting monster Northern Pike on Hewitt Lake. The jet boat ride to the lake is an exciting adventure on its own.

Whether you have chosen the tackle busting King Salmon, which can weigh up to 70 lbs. and take 45 minutes to land, or fish when the streams are teeming with the Silver & Sockeye Salmon weighing in at 10-18 lbs with incredible acrobatics  and a very aggressive nature, this experience will burn your arms and blow your mind.

We take great pride in our adventure vacations. We are highly skilled in both fly-fishing and spin-fishing. From the novice to the expert we will consistently put you in the position to land that trophy fish of a lifetime. Our equipment is top notch, from our jet boats to our high quality fishing gear.
