couple-fishThe Alaskan Fishing Vacation of Your Dreams!

If you've dreamed of a magical Alaskan fishing vacation... far from civilization, an abundant clear river loaded with trophy salmon and arctic char just outside your private lodge, pristine wilderness as far as the eye can see, abundant wildlife, small groups, great food and guaranteed relaxation; this is it.

At Austins Golsovia River lodge, youll be fishing a beautiful clear stream on private land accessible only by boat. There are no other landowners, no roads, no airports. You're surrounded by BLM land and 40 miles from civilization. Fishing is a one minute leisurely walk from the lodge. Take your time, walk with your family or friends, try various flies and lures. When not fishing, theres lots to do; hike, kayak, view wildlife and birds, outdoor hot tub, beach comb, swim/water tube, basketball, horse shoes, volleyball, bonfires, berry picking, all which are great activities for families and children of all ages. Enjoy great home cooked meals; caribou, moose, ptarmigan, arctic hare, king crab (when available), musk ox and of course fresh salmon you've just caught. Look forward to relaxation, magical solitude, nature, fun and incredible fishing! This is a soft adventure suitable for all ages and experience whether you fish or not.


Some of Alaska Finest Clear Stream Fishing

The rustic and comfortable Golsovia lodge sits only 300 yards from the river mouth and Norton Sound, a part of the Bering Sea. Abundant and large King, Pink, Silver and Chum salmon, fresh and feisty from the ocean, can be seen as they pass within an easy cast of your fly or lure. Arctic Char also call this pristine fishing paradise home. Daily catches exceeding 50 fish each is not uncommon during summer runs, (we practice catch & release after limits are taken). June through August is peak time for our piece of Alaskan paradise.

No other lodge in western Alaska offers this kind of all-inclusive, week-long trophy fishing adventure for under $2,500 each. And certainly few fishing guides can offer the experience of guiding with the late Jerry Austin, Hall of Fame Inductee, to what has been called "The last great race on earth", the Iditarod Dog Sled Race.


Jerry Austin, Iditarod Hall of Fame ~ A lifetime of outdoor experience

Jerry and Clara Austin together have lived lifetimes of outdoor experience that most dream of. Jerry, who spent his early years hunting and fishing the Bitteroots of Idaho and Cascades of Washington migrated to St. Michael, Alaska as a young man. For over 30 years, Jerry has made the Alaskan outdoors his life - fishing, hunting and dog mushing.

The Charter Inductee to the Iditarod Hall of Fame, three Sportsmanship Trophies, and numerous 1st place finishes in different races demonstrated Jerrys expertise with dog sled racing and was a reflection of his love of the outdoors. The compelling real life stories Jerry can shared will amazed and entertained you our guests during your their trip. His stories are remembered and his family and guides will share these amazing adventures with future guests.

Clara, a Yupik Eskimo, native of the region, an accomplished musher and record holder, will, along with her daughters, cook delicious meals youll fondly remember.
