Alaska Trip

Join the world-famous expert fly fisher John Packer at Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge to fish for Alaska’s largest wild rainbow Trout and Arctic Char in excess of 30” in the heart of Alaska’s Bristol Bay region. The lodge is located on the Kvichak River just four miles down from Lake Iliamna, Alaska’s largest lake. This system has the largest wild salmon run in the world, is Alaska’s designated Trophy rainbow Trout area, is in a pristine remote setting with no roads. Here, snow-fed streams flow crystal-clear from the mountains over the tundra and to the sea. Salmon runs are measured in the millions and rainbow Trout grow to legendary size.

The Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge, a past Orvis Endorsed Lodge of the Year recipient, is nestled upon the bluff of the riverbank overlooking this wild breathtaking region. You will fish the home water by boat or be flown in our float equipped aircraft from the lodge to many of the nearby streams in Katmai National Park and other areas of the Iliamna drainage to fish for the day. The pilots and guides are world-class professionals that have dedicated their lives to customer service in the fishing industry. You will return to 5-star luxury comfort and enjoy delicious cuisine prepared by our professional team of chefs.
