Top Destination From Sportquest Holidays

FishPal Sportquest HolidaysFishPal’s international fishing holiday partners Sportquest share with us why Alaska is one of the favourite destinations of their CEO Peter Collingsworth.

If you are looking for a Fishing Lodge that puts you and the fishing first, then look no further. The Goodnews River Lodge is
located in a remote corner of Southwest Alaska about 475 miles from Anchorage, at the edge of the pristine Togiak National Wildlife Refuge. As the ONLY full service lodge on the entire three branch river system, you will experience the solitude and peaceful beauty of Alaska as it should be. It’s just you and the fish. No crowds, no flying to the “best” river. It’s all here on the Goodnews River, and it’s all yours to enjoy.

The three forks of the Goodnews River flow out of the Ahklun Mountains, and wander through the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as they make their way to the Bering Sea. There are over 490 miles of fish-able streams, braids, creeks and river branches for you to enjoy, all without seeing another angler. The Lodge itself is located on the North Fork of the river, which is the main branch, right at the upper edge of tidewater, and just 7 miles from Goodnews Bay. From there, the jet boats can easily access all 3 forks of the river, as well as the lower tidewater sections. Chrome bright Salmon, most still with sea lice, are the norm. These fish are fresh and feisty, and will challenge your angling skills. Resident leopard rainbows and grayling live in all areas of the river, and follow the salmon upriver as they get ready for their spawning rituals.


The River boasts outstanding runs of all 5 species of pacific salmon, sea run Dolly Varden, and resident leopard rainbows and grayling. The Lodge is a fixed camp right on the river just above tidewater, and is not a fly out camp. Accommodation is in high tech elevated Weatherproof tent/cabins, each with fixed windows and door and a propane heater for those chilly Alaska nights. There are 6 bathrooms, each with hot showers, sinks and toilets. There’s also a heated drying room for your waders and fishing gear so they are dry and ready for the next day’s fishing. Gourmet meals are served in the dining and recreational facility.

So if it’s a river system as nature intended, with no trace of human interference, full of undisturbed fish, with great company you do not need to look any further than the Goodnews River Lodge.
