Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge is a full-service lodge on the Kvichak River. They provide a high-end experience for anglers, including guided angling on the Kvichak River, guided fly-out fishing to other noteworthy streams in the Bristol Bay area, 5-star cuisine and comfortable accommodations.
Rainbow trout fishing on the Kvichak can be extraordinary. This river has the potential to put out giant trout, thanks to the huge amount of food for the trout in the Lake Iliamna system. Millions of sockeye salmon return each year, providing nutrition for both trout and fishermen. Anglers get the thrill of catching sockeye salmon, which are among the strongest salmon pound for pound, and the resulting delicious fillets. Trout target sockeye for their eggs, smolt and eventually flesh, and this huge protein source is a big part of what produces quality rainbow trout.
Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge sits on prime water about four miles from Lake Iliamna. This homewater location is a big advantage for anglers visiting Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge as there are days during the season where you are unable to flyout due to weather. On most days. anglers have the ability to fly out to blue-ribbon streams in the area. The pilots and guides of Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge are intimately familiar with the rivers in the area and keep on top of what rivers are fishing well throughout the season. This allows them to tailor a program for each angler depending on their wants and what is happening in the angling landscape that week.
