Just returned from 3 days and 4 nights at Talon Lodge. The trip was our 4th one in 10 years. We have a large family with a lot of "organized chaos" to say the least. Phil, Gwen and the entire staff accommodated us in every way, there was nothing we could want for.
On this trip we celebrated my parents 60th wedding anniversary(10 years ago we did their 50th here as well), so needless to say it was extremely special. In addition our son decided to propose to his girlfriend, we called Gwen and discussed it with her. We came up with a plan and made a banner that he dropped deep and had her reel it up. Needless to say she was very shocked to read what she had caught, and she immediately said "YES"! Phil even came out to the area and videoed it was his drone which was totally unexpected, but very cool.
The fishing was as good as the past 3 trips we have made there, we caught limits of salmon, halibut, yellow eye, rock fish, black bass and a bunch more. Our largest king salmon was 38#'s and the largest halibut was around 100#'s but had to be thrown back being oversized.
I can't say enough about the staff and attention you get from the moment you arrive until the moment they take you back to the airport, it truly is a unique experience .
In closing I would highly recommend Talon Lodge if you want a pampered experience, great fellowship and tremendous fishing...
