Our Home on the Tal River
Family Owned & Operated for Over 40 Years
Meet your hosts
Meet your hosts: Mark and Felicia Miller. At Talaheim's Alaska Fishing Lodge service is served with a story. Hard to believe it was 1974 when owner, operator, and long time Alaskan resident, Mark Miller, engraved his first mark on the Talachulitna River. With just one rubber raft, one J3 Cub, and one hair on his chest, Mark set out to build Talaheim Lodge.
Learn our history
In the early mornings, before the suburban sounds of Needham, Massachusetts awoke, a young lad carrying a bow hunted backyard birds secretly pretending they were grizzly, and that he, an Alaskan guide. From the young age of twelve, Mark Miller knew he'd somehow reach The Last Frontier and that his dream of becoming a real Alaskan fishing and hunting guide would someday become reality.
Join the Tal family
It's not just the incredible fishing that continues to draw our guests back. What makes a fishing trip at Talaheim Lodge so desirable, and different from other fishing trips, is our family atmosphere. After all, adventure is nothing without a family to share it with, and we're proud to say that we've made a business of creating memories and collecting family members for over 40 years.
