If fly-fishing were considered a religion, then Alaska would be its High Church. Fly-Fishing in Alaska is more than just a sport or passion – it’s a way of life. Once you have been bitten by the bug, you’re “hooked”. Fly-fisherman have the unique excuse to visit some of the most remote and stunningly beautiful locations on the planet.
Alagnak River (A-lag-nak): This prestigious river is located within the Katmai National Park and Preserve, with its headwaters in the surrounding mountains and draining into Bristol Bay. It is also known as the Branch River, for its seemingly endless braided river channels. Wading and fishing are made easy on the many small natural islands and gravel bars, which the river flow creates. The Alagnak has world-famous runs of all five species of Pacific Salmon, and is home to a host of resident fish. Crystal clear water allows for perfect stalking conditions, whilst slow runs and fast riffles are common place, with pools well suited to holding pods of staging Salmon, often 35+ lbs., when targeting the kings. With hatches occurring throughout the season, it is not rare to see a resident trout or grayling rise.
If you want affordable fly fishing in Alaska and retain comfort, great food, hospitality and first rate guides then do not look any further than Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge as we can guarantee that Wayne and his family will take very good care of you.
Bear Viewing in Katmai National Park: With the highest population of brown bears in the world, the Katmai National Park is one of the most prized destinations for wildlife viewing in Alaska. Particularly for seeing large brown bears feeding on fresh run salmon. We have been operating in Alaska for over 25 years and have a clean safety record. Our well-seasoned and knowledgeable guides have developed a strong understanding and respect for these wonderful creatures, built up by living and working amongst them.
Our location on the Alagnak is deep in bear country and we often have bears within sight of our lodge. We are able to access the river by jet boat and find perfect spots for camera crews to set up and spend a whole days surrounded by these magnificent creatures. In the height of our season it is not rare to see over 20 bears in a day as well as an array of other wildlife. Our lodge based bear viewing tours, provide clients with comfortable private riverfront cabins, delicious meals and guided jet boat tours in prime bear viewing country. These majestic creatures are an incredible sight to behold. Get your camera ready and take the pictures of a lifetime.
Fly outs: We work closely with a number of bush plane charter companies and offer a choice of fishing or wilderness/wildlife viewing options to our guests. These “Fly Outs” are a unique way to see Alaska from the air and spend a day either fishing or wildlife viewing in a variety of remote wilderness locations. Here we have a short list of our most popular locations. Each location changes with the season and we have full details when you arrive at the lodge.
Raft trips: Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge has been operating guided float trips inside the Katmai National Park since 1985. These trips are a tremendous experience and perfect way to escape into the Alaska wilderness and camp in style. Fishing for trophy rainbow trout, char, grayling, pike and all five salmon species will keep your rod bent and guarantee satisfaction.
These trips are limited to only 4 to 6 guests, and are ideal to do with friends or family. Our float trips offer great value with the opportunity to stop at a world-class remote fishing lodge half way through your trip.
The opportunity to fish and/or photograph wildlife on these rivers is unmatched. Unguided float trips are a great value and wonderful way to live out your childhood dream of floating an Alaskan river with just a rod in hand and no one to answer to.
Meals: The lodge offers some of the finest cuisine in the Alaskan wilderness. Each morning begins with a hot breakfast. For lunch, you’ll choose from an array of meats, cheeses, and condiments, so that each person can construct their perfect deli sandwich or shore lunch if you prefer. Your guide will keep your sandwich, along with a variety of snacks and refreshments, in his cooler. Guides can also prepare shore lunches during the Salmon season, if this is your preference. Appetisers are served at 5:30 p.m. daily on the lodge’s deck where you can view the river. Dinner is served between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. and dress is casual. The dinner menu includes Prime Rib, baked Salmon, grilled lemon pepper Chicken, Italian or Mexican night and barbecued baby back ribs. A complimentary glass of Wine is also included with dinner.
