Overview of Alaska Fly-out Fishing Lodge

This well established lodge is easily considered to be the finest Alaska fly-out fishing lodge with daily float plane fly out fishing to remote areas. Located in the heart of the Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska, they are within easy flying distance to the finest waters in the state. Depending on the week they target five species of Pacific Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, Arctic Grayling, Lake Trout and Northern Pike and most any combination thereof.

Why do we love this Alaska Fly-out Fishing Lodge so much?  Besides the amazing fishing, it is the people that make this the Alaska fishing experience you will want to enjoy year after year.  It is not uncommon to sit across the table with clients that have been coming to this lodge for three decades!  It is your turn to make this your annual fishing experience.

Beside exceptional service and people, unique to this lodge is there offering of Lake Hop fishing!  An exciting and adventurous day of landing on remote sometimes unfished lakes.  Your group, guide and your pilot will land on a remote gorgeous lake where you will try your hand.  Enjoy the exhilaration as the fish begin to bite with aggression as they have not been exposed at all or sometimes seldom to the sight of the fly or lure.  Stay until they decide they are interested no more and take off to land on the next lake and so on for the entire day!  It doesn’t get any better than this.

In June fly out to the Nushagak River for the famed King Salmon run.  In July enjoy the variety of salmon and other species on numerous rivers.  August and September present the Silver Salmon run and big fat healthy Rainbow Trout.  Each day experience a new exciting fishing opportunity.

If you and your group are interested in a first class luxury Alaska fly fishing lodge experience, without comprising great fishing to find luxury, this may well be your kind of place.

They are committed to providing the best service possible with the ultimate goal being to have fun while catching lots of fish!

 

 

Fishing

This lodge is a premium fishing lodge located 350 miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, in the Bristol Bay Drainage. Bristol Bay-area rivers and lakes, like the world famous Nushagak, are renowned for their runs of wild Pacific salmon and thriving resident populations of rainbow trout, arctic char, arctic grayling, northern pike, lake trout and dolly varden.

The waters surrounding the lodge are a fishing paradise. The diversity is incredible, the productivity exceptional, and experience is singular and special in every way.  The lodge packages, for example, feature daily fly-out fishing excursions that deliver guests to the best fishing in the area. That means one day you can be fly fishing for trophy rainbows, the next day drift bait for monster King salmon, and a day later be on the hottest pike bite you have ever experienced.

Add to that all the other possibilities. They are located right on the shoreline of Lake Aleknagik just a short drive and a boat ride from Dillingham. The lake and some of its tributaries boast fabulous fishing for char and rainbows while, some of the more remote waters they fish, are home to gigantic grayling and big rainbows that by any standard are genuine trophies.

How much fish and what kind can I take home?
Each client is allowed one 50 pound box of Salmon only.  They practice a strict catch and release policy on all resident species (Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, Arctic Char, Grayling, Pike and Lake Trout).

For King Salmon, the state regulates the number of Kings you can harvest.

What is the season?
The lodge is only open during prime fishing months and the prime weather months.  Any time from June-September is excellent it just depends on your activity desires.  If you are specially seeking a certain species of fish then sometimes are better than others.
