Boating and Fishing on

private Daniels Lake in Alaska


Daniels Lake has no public access and is sparsely populated so it is usually quiet and peaceful. Guests may rent boats or canoes to explore the 2 mile long lake with 10 miles of shoreline. After all that work, you might like to soak in the lakeside hot tub while you enjoy the view and often watch wildlife. Daniels Lake also has a healthy population of native rainbow trout.

Daniels Lake is one of the best lakes for rainbow trout fishing right in our front yard.  Usually, they're 15-20 inches long and weigh 1-3 lbs. If you want to see the "big one" that was 6 lbs, it's mounted and on display at a Kenai restaurant. In the summer, we use spinners and troll or, if we want the quiet, turn off the engine and cast.
