Bristol Bay Lodge

Game Fishing Paradise

Alaska is one of the best destinations in the world for the sheer abundance and variety of salmon and game fishing species. Combine that with the truly unspoiled environment and you have a superb fishing paradise. Bristol Bay Lodge combines back woods exploration with the comforts of an Alaskan holiday.

more fishing, less travel time

Bristol Bay Lodge offers six different and spectacular fishing destinations. Four of these fisheries are utilized in two overnight camp experiences, and two are fished from the lodge as day fisheries.

Just a short boat ride from the lodge’s front door is the world-famous Agulowak River, celebrated for its productive fishing for rainbows, grayling, char, dolly-varden, and sockeye salmon.  A little further afield, but still only a 30 minute flight away, are the watersheds of the Wood-TikChik Park and Togiak National Wildlife Refuge.  Anglers are transported in immaculately maintained De Havilland Beaver float planes.

Scenic Views & Cozy Accommodations

Bristol Bay Lodge was founded in 1972 on a wooded rise overlooking Lake Aleknagik and the surrounding mountains of Wood-TikChik Park. The lodge presides over a scenic bay some 40 air miles northwest of the small, remote town of Dillingham, 300 miles west of the nearest connecting northwest road system. It is strategically located in the heart of America’s largest state park and has the distinct advantage of being utterly surrounded by pristine wilderness.

Nestled around Bristol Bay Lodge are cozy cedar cabins, set among tall fir trees. All overlook majestic Lake Aleknagik and through the huge panoramic window guests will witness a breath-taking scene as the sun rises and sets over the mountains. The walls of the lodge are decorated with great trophies caught by myriad fishermen over 30 years, set among impressions and photographs of every animal that roams the surrounding wilderness. 

Accommodating up to 26 guests in eight bedrooms, the lodge’s well-appointed facility offers casually elegant wilderness living filled with creature comforts. The main lodge houses a professional kitchen, the dining room, large living room with bar area, the library and a huge fly tying bench laden with everything one needs to tie quality flies suited to the surrounding rivers. The famous see-through fireplace is fronted by a panoramic view of Lake Aleknagik. There is a fully equipped fly and tackle shop. In warm weather the lodge’s decks are the favourite gathering places for appetizers, cocktails and weekly barbecues.

“I was amazed at the vast amount of water and species at my disposal. Indeed, it was difficult to know what to target next and the six days certainly went far too quickly. A lot of boxes left to tick and I will certainly return.” E.Millan, Surrey, UK

Along with the three immaculately maintained DeHavilland Beaver float planes waiting at the dockside is a fleet of jet boats ready to explore the lake and its diverse rivers. There is also the opportunity for four to six anglers to overnight in the heart of the wilderness and have a real Alaskan adventure. Bristol Bay Lodge’s legendary Outpost Camps, so famous for the extraordinary fishing that they provide all season long, offer the chance to fish all day and under the midnight sun, then sit around the campfire and truly relax. Not only are the Outpost Camps set on prolific and uniquely private waters, but they also indulge guests in wonderful comfort with delicious cuisine.

One of the world’s best destinations

Bristol Bay Lodge is ranked 4th in the world, in terms of fishing lodges by Forbes Magazine, and is the most acclaimed of Alaskan Lodges, providing the ultimate adventure but also plenty of creature comforts  to assure a comfortable, enjoyable and memorable stay.
