Smokin Joe's Lodge is located on one of the most beautiful
and picturesque spots on the Kenai River. The river flows
gently in front of the Main Lodge with a beautiful tree laden
island directly across. This affords not only a green belt
as a viewing backdrop, but also a quiet and peaceful setting.
You will be able to relax, fish or build a fire in the outdoor
fire pit on the 30 foot circular deck overlooking the turquoise
water of the Kenai River. An adjoining 17 foot deck provides
boat mooring for your boarding convenience. The lodging for
clients faces a quiet greenbelt with a canal running in front.
It is not uncommon to see a Moose roaming around or Eagles
soaring above. The four units are fully furnished and include
a full kitchen and bath, (some with bath and one-half), living
room, dining room and bedrooms that can accommodate up to
six people. After all, Smokin Joe's wants you to feel as comfortable
as you would in your own home. Click
Blueberry Island Lodge is located on the famous Kvichak (kwee-jack)
River. The Kvichak River flows out of Lake Iliamna into Bristol
Bay. Bristol Bay boasts the world's largest Sockeye Salmon
(red salmon) migration with the Kvichak River having the largest
escapement of all the Bristol Bay rivers. The lodge is located
approximately one mile down river from Lake Iliamna, Alaska's
largest fresh water lake. We are on an island locally called
"Blueberry Island" hence the name of the lodge.
Lake Iliamna drainage is classified as Alaska's "Trophy
Rainbow Trout Area". It is not uncommon to hook into
numbers of trout over 10 lbs. or have salmon pass under your
feet by the thousands per hour.
Here at Blueberry Island Lodge the services we offer differ
from the normal Alaskan lodge experience. We want you to be
in the driver's seat. If you want to be in control of your
fishing trip, it can happen here. We can guide your whole
stay if that is your wish or after the first day we can cut
you loose to take control of your own fishing. We offer a
comfortable bed (double occupancy room) and boat. We have
four rooms available with two single beds each so we can accommodate
parties up to eight. Guests will have the kitchen, cookware
and utensils available to prepare their meals.
There is guiding available
and is mandatory for the first day for those who are new
to the Kvichak River. The mandatory first day guiding will
equip the fisherman with a working knowledge of the boat
and safety features as well as the personality of the river
at the time of the visit. If you are looking for the opportunity
to experience Alaska's "Trophy Trout" area or
maybe the chance to do battle with some of the millions
of Sockeye that go up the Kvichak River, this is the place.
Plus, it won't take your life's savings to make it happen.
