Fishing and Species
The trout in Alaska move around throughout the year. They do not park behind a rock and live there for the next 10 years. With a mobile population of fish, it only makes sense as anglers to be mobile as well. Daily flyout fishing with numerous options is the best way to fish this part of the state. No See Um specializes in fly fishing for rainbow trout but will accommodate customers’ interests. Rainbow Trout are available all season and average 3-10 lbs. Rainbows to fifteen pounds and more are caught in August and September. Dolly Varden are available all season and average 3-6 lbs. Arctic Char are available all season and average 3-14 lbs. with larger fish quite common in late September. Arctic Grayling are available all season and average 1-3 lbs. Also at least one of the five Pacific Salmon are always available with the exception of the first two weeks of our season. Included are Chinook (King) salmon that average 30 lbs. but often reach 60 lbs. Coho (Silver) salmon that average 10 lbs. but often reach 18 lbs. Sockeye (Red) salmon that average 6 lbs. but reach 15 lbs. Chum (Dog) salmon that average 10 lbs. and reach 18 lbs. and Humpback (Pink) salmon that average 3-5 lbs.

One of Alaska's first fly-out lodges, No See Um is a family-run operation that was established by Jack Holman in the early 1970's. Today his son, John, who is both a pilot and a guide, maintains No See Um's well-earned reputation for pampering and pleasing its guests. John has been living, fishing, guiding and flying in Alaska for most of his life. The lodge is staffed by the finest talent available.

Alaska’s famous rainbow Trout are what is fished for most at No See Um. They are available throughout the season and average 3-10 pounds, with fish to fifteen pounds and more in August and September. Other species they fish for are Dolly Varden, Char, Arctic Grayling and all five salmon species: King, Silver, Sockeye, Chum and Pink.

They are one of the few lodges in Alaska that keeps the aircraft with the angler. Most lodges "drop off" anglers and try to get back in the afternoon to pick them up. If the fishing is slow or weather turns, you are there regardless. When you have the plane with you, often you can fish more than one river a day. They operate the finest aircraft available, with 3 Beavers for 12 anglers. The aircraft have been restored to "better than new" condition.

Their guide staff is comprised of only full-time professional fishing guides. All have many years in Alaska guiding on the same water you will fish. Their pilots are also the best in the business; all are commercially licensed with instrument ratings and have several thousand hours flying float planes in Alaska before working for No See Um.

The lodge is built on a high bank overlooking the Kvichak River. The guest houses have a total of six bedrooms, each equipped with two beds and a private bathroom. A lounge with a bar and wood stove enhances the comfortable setting. Electricity is available 24 hours a day, as is telephone and Internet access. After a full day of fishing, you can enjoy the relaxing and friendly atmosphere at the lodge while sipping a beverage and sampling delicious appetizers before dinner. The sauna is fired up daily and the Jacuzzi is always hot.

Gourmet meals are prepared by their world-class chef. Special diets can be accommodated. Fresh breads, rolls and desserts are prepared daily. Select red and white wines are served with dinner.
