Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge
Katmai National Park This deluxe fly fishing lodge is located on the upper Alagnak River 40-miles northeast of King Salmon, Alaska, deep in the Katmai National Park of Bristol Bay. The Lodge sits on 160-acres of private land and 3,800 feet of private Alagnak River frontage. The closest lodge is 25-miles away. World-class rainbow fishing, all five species of salmon, and bear viewing.
Fly Fish the Upper Braids of the Alagnak
The fishing in this section of the Alagnak is superb. Fishing is hot right at the Lodge. All five species of salmon are here. There are no other fly-out lodges able to access this 30-mile
stretch of the upper Alagnak, known as The Braids. The Lodge is located six miles downstream from the confluence of three rivers—the Alagnak, the Kukaklek, and the Nonvianuk. Excellent
access without the need for fly-outs.
They specialize in daily jet boat fishing. Many days they fish within sight of the main lodge, as this area of the upper braids holds world-class rainbows all season. With the addition of their new inboard jet boat, they offer daily and overnight trips to Kukaklek or Nonvianuk Lake outlets and other local tributaries which include Little Kukaklek, Morraine Creek, and Battle River.
Alaskan King Salmon start to enter the Alagnak near the end of June and run through July 31st. The Lodge's prime slots for kings are the last two weeks in July but they can still target them earlier in the season.
In the evenings, guides conduct free fly casting or fly tying seminars.
Five runs of Salmon:
Sockeye Salmon: June 26 thru July 22
King Salmon: July 1 thru July 30 (the last two weeks of July are peak season for kings)
Chum Salmon: July 15 thru August 15
Pink Salmon: July 25 thru August 25
Silver Salmon: August 5 thru September 20
Dolly varden: August thru September
Grayling: all season
Northern pike: early season until mid-July
Brown bear viewing and photography opportunities. The Lodge is deep in bear country, and they often have bears within sight of the Lodge. By jet boat, they are able to find perfect spots for camera crews to set up and spend whole days surrounded by these magnificent creatures. In the height of their season, it is not uncommon to see over 20 bears in a day, as well as an array of other wildlife. See pictures below.
