DESTINATION TRAVEL

 

Fly Fishing Oufitters and Alaska Sportsman's lodge are pleased to announce a flyfishing adventure of a lifetime in the Bristol bay area of Southeast Alaska.

                                                                                                October 2nd - 6th 2014

As you travel down the crystal clear Kvichak (kwee-JACK) River about four miles from majestic Lake Iliamna, you will find The Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge nestled intimately up on the riverbank. This full service fishing lodge is located in the heart of the Bristol Bay region. The Bristol Bay watershed is not only home to the world’s richest commercial and sport salmon fisheries, but is also Alaska’s only designated “Trophy Rainbow Trout” area. Here, snow-fed streams flow crystal clear from the mountains across the rolling tundra to the sea. The purity of this nutrient rich environment allows fish to grow to enormous size. With annual salmon runs in the millions and Rainbow Trout in excess of thirty inches, anglers throughout the world see this area as the pinnacle of sport fishing.

Orientation/Check-in:                                       You will register upon arrival at the lodge.  Your bags will be transferred to your cabin for you.  We will introduce you to the staff, prep you for your week, and then get you settled into your cabin.  This is followed by appetizers and delicious dinner.
