Rapids Camp Lodge has a prime location and allows access to some of the best fly-fishing rivers in the area – whether that be fishing the Nankek River or heading off to a fly-out destination. If you are after fishing Nirvana then it’s a great place to start.

There’s something here for the traditional fly angler, Spey angler, seasoned fly fisher, or novice. The region is home to five Pacific salmon species, including the mighty chinook, vibrant sockeye, acrobatic coho, the often underrated chum salmon, and numerous pink salmon. The rivers are also well populated with resident fish species like rainbow trout, Arctic char, grayling, and dolly varden, all promising endless excitement.
