A great place for complete beginners through to experienced anglers alike – they really do have something for everyone. Fly outs are included in the schedule and waters near and far are explored, the week stay also includes two comfortable campout nights which offer a true wilderness experience. The fishing options from the lodge and its camps are seemingly endless, with a myriad of rivers and waterways brimming with Pacific salmon species, rainbow trout, grayling and dolly varden. Each day anglers are transported to their fishing by boat or immaculately maintained De Havilland Beaver float planes, both offering an wonderful and different perspective of the Alaskan wilderness.

Alaska Trophy Adventure Lodge (ATA Lodge) on the Alagnak River

2022 availability (the King Salmon season ends on July 31)

Boasting a world-famous run of all five species of Pacific salmon with the salmon season starting at the end of June, peaking through July and August. With much more to offer, the Alagnak is also home to a host of resident fish, such as leopard and rainbow trout, arctic char and grayling. This prestigious river is located within the Katmai National Park, with its headwaters in the surrounding mountains and drains into Bristol Bay.  Also known as “The Branch River” , the Alagnak’s seemingly endless braids can turn 10 miles of river into 30 miles of fishable water. With such exclusive river access, you are sure not to be bothered by any crowds and if you really want to get away from it all, why not opt for a fly out or raft trip; an unparalleled opportunity to fish and truly experience the remoteness of the location.

Rapids Camp Lodge

A lodge where you call the shots on a daily basis. Fish on the Naknek river immediately in front of the lodge – it produces some huge rainbow trout. Alternatively, fly out to a remote river where you get that true feeling of exploration and escaping civilisation. Several float planes are ready to take you on your journey. Your daily schedule is planned and discussed in detail to make sure you target what you want to target on a daily basis. In addition, they also have a halibut fishing operation for those looking for something different; these have even been caught on the fly. A really relaxed, informal lodge. A perfect opportunity for a family trip.

Kulik Lodge

Kulik Lodge has provided anglers with the finest Alaskan freshwater sportfishing available since 1950. The lodge is situated on the banks of the Kulik River, one of the top trout rivers in the world. It is the only operation located on the river, which means that the home waters are the same waters that many of the area’s other high-end lodges fly in and out of each day. Choose daily fly-outs, fish the home waters, or create your own schedule that allows you to enjoy the comfortable accommodations, excellent amenities, and untouched wilderness that surrounds you. With numerous aircraft, experienced pilots, professional guides, and access to the famous rivers in Bristol Bay, Kulik provides fishing that is out of this world. This is a fantastic lodge for targeting wild rainbow trout, they do also access the Nushagak River for king salmon. The ‘Nush’ has one of the biggest runs of kings in Alaska and it is possible to fly fish for them but a lot of anglers typically fish conventional gear as the fish are holding in deeper areas of the river.
