Take advantage of last-minute August family vacation specials

Waterfall Resort announces limited availability for 2015 summer season.

Waterfall Resort, the most popular fishing lodge in Alaska, announced the region’s annual wild coho salmon run has started in earnest and is expected to peak in August. Coho, also known as silver salmon, are a local favorite because of their aerobatic fight, frequently jumping out of the water when being reeled in. Furthermore, coho’s prolific numbers mean non-resident anglers may each keep up to six salmon per day, enabling visitors to fill up their freezers with fresh, wild Alaska salmon fillets for the year.

Waterfall Resort Alaska’s only remaining availability for the 2015 summer season is perfectly timed for guests to experience the coho salmon run. During Seniors Week, August 11-14, guests 65 and older can take advantage of 25% off any Land Package when silver salmon are most abundant in Southeast Alaska.

Furthermore, because Alaska sport fishing is a great way for families to spend time together across multiple generations, anglers can bring their children and grandchildren by taking advantage of the resort’s Kids Rate, with 15% off travel for children ages 15 and younger for boatloads of fun and unforgettable memories. Southeast Alaska’s natural landscape allows for awe-inspiring wildlife encounters including orcas, humpback whales, bald eagles, black bears and more. After a full day of fishing, guests can explore the resort’s 52 acres, feast on hearty fresh Alaskan meals in the Dining Room, share fish tales at the Lagoon Saloon and relax comfortably in historic accommodations.

Near Ketchikan, just a 90-minute flight from Seattle, Waterfall Resort invites anglers of all ages and skill levels to experience legendary sport fishing excursions where they have the chance to land trophy-size Alaska king salmon (Chinook), silver salmon (coho), halibut, lingcod, yelloweye rockfish and more than 20 other abundant species.
