Explore Alaska's Kenai Peninsula this Summer!

We are a deluxe, oceanfront fishing lodge catering to parties up to 12. We offer fully guided salt water and fresh water fishing excursions, using boats, airplanes and helicopters. Our log lodge is located on the waters of Cook Inlet, from which the volcanoes Mt Iliamna and Mt Redoubt are in plain sight.

Deep Creek Fishing Club is located on the coast in the quaint village of Ninilchik, just 186 miles south of Anchorage, strategically located on the shores of Cook Inlet, between the National Parks of Lake Clark, Katmai and the Kenai Fjiords.

About Deep Creek Fishing Club

Set in the small, once-Russian fishing village of Ninilchik which has a population of 700 at last count. Eagles and moose are common visitors with the occasional bear that wanders in.

The Employee Experience

Perched on a bluff overlooking the mouth of Deep Creek and Cook Inlet, Imagine waking up to the sounds of the ocean and the stunning snow-capped volcanoes of Mt Redoubt & Mt Iliamna.  Step out on your deck and see the Inlet stretch before you for miles and miles;  The lodge is surrounded by natural beauty where you can observe stately bald eagles soaring overhead in stunning power and grace, watch out for browsing moose that bring their young ones to wander through the property, relax in the afterglow of beautiful sunsets or stroll on the pebbled beaches with the seabirds.

Getting Here and Getting Around
