Baranof Wilderness Lodge is nestled in Warm Springs Bay on the east side of Baranof Island, 20 air miles east of Sitka. A short, spectacular float plane ride from Sitka delivers you directly to our lodge side dock. Warm Springs Bay is named for the remarkable natural hot springs, enjoyed today as it was by native Tlingit Indians for centuries.
The unpressured waters around our lodge offer the most abundant and diverse salt and freshwater fishing available in Alaska. Dozens of spectacular bays, estuaries, fishing streams and lakes within a short boat ride or hike from our lodge offer premier angling. Do come join us! The location is extraordinary, the diversity of waters and wildlife will astonish you and the fishing is beyond comparison. Prepare to spend some time seeing Alaska at its very best. Relax, browse our facilities and enjoy your visit with us.

“I had one of the best days I have ever had in Alaska. We ran into 13 Big Brown bears hiking up my favorite stream. Caught wads of September painted Dollys and watched 10 Humpback whales bubble net feeding 30 feet off the bow on the way home. The day reminded me of why I came to Alaska!” – Mike
