I enjoyed being with my boys the best. Everything at the lodge was wonderful.


Here are the highlights that I enjoyed the most (not in any particular order):

  1. The fishing!
  2. The whales, sea lions, eagles, and other wildlife.
  3. The beautiful surroundings.
  4. Miracle Thread
  5. The dock workers
  6. The store operator
  7. The food
  8. Derek’s salmon rub recipe
  9. Mark Warner and his family
  10. Staff sitting with us at dinner time
  11. The pictures shown on the TVs in the dining room

Thanks for a wonderful time!

Mark Warner
Mark H. Warner was raised in Juneau and he has been fishing the waters of Alaska for more than 30 years. He grew up working with his father developing Doc Warner’s from its earliest days. After getting his Ph.D. in Mechanical engineering, he went to work in the industry where he later completed an Executive MBA. Then in 2010, his father, Doc, offered Mark and his wife, Kristina, the opportunity to move back to Alaska and operate the lodge full-time. Today, Mark has over 25 years of experience with Doc Warner’s. His knowledge and experience teaching people about self-guided fishing in Alaska are now used to create lasting memories for Doc Warner’s guests.
