Katmailand Anglers Paradise Lodges is really three lodges built around the concept of fishing, touring Alaska and groups. Each of the lodge offers something different. The lodges sit within the Katmai National Park. The lodges are Brooks Lodge, Grosvenor Lodge and Kulik Lodge. The area is part of the worlds best rainbow trout and salmon fisheries.

Pick Your Adventure: The Fish are Waiting

Because the three lodges are so different, there is something here for everyone. The Kulik Lodge, which sits on the Kulik River with local fishing on both the Kulik and Nonvianuk Lakes, has room for up to 28 fishermen. The focus here is Rainbow Trout over ten pounds.

The Grosvenor Lodge is smaller and more intimate. The modern cabins holds up to six people, but the guest focus is usually just four guests. The lodge sits on the Grosvenor lake. The fishing here is for Rainbows and char with the occasional monster Northern Pike and in season the Sockeye salmon crowd the lake.

Brooks Lodge sits on the shores of Brooks River nearly at the center of the Katmai National Park. This is a fly-only river and lake, and you share the water with bear. There are no guides. You can opt to add a fly-out trip or stay local fish for Salmon, Char, Pike and Trout. Brooks lodge also offers guided tours of the Valley of 10,000 smokes. This is an awe-inspiring site of the 1912 massive volcanic eruption. The evidence of its destructive force is still visible.

The Fish, The Forest and the Bears

Welcome to the wilds of Alaska. Because the lodges are located inside of a preserve, you will only see a few fellow fishermen. This is bear land, expect to see bears pretty much as soon as you arrive. Guests are instructed on how to deal with bears and prevent incidents. You also have the opportunity to watch the bears fish at Brooks Lodge. The mighty creatures may be 50 thick as they crowd the falls catching and eating Silver Salmon as the fish try to swim the rapids and climb the falls.

The area has a primordial feel to it as though you are trespassing in Eden. It is the fact that we have lost our sense of nature, but the area is medicinal in the way it allows us to recover that feeling. The fishing here is amazingly decadent. You have the choice of Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, Brook Trout. Monsters include the Northern Pike, Rainbows and Salmon. The Silver Salmon are especially fantastic as their fight is extreme, and they strike your fly with enough force to jolt your body.

Float Trips, Guides and Fly-outs

From the Nonvianuk, Camp is where you start your trip. These trips are self-guided, but the river is tame enough not to worry. You are in charge of where you stop and where you fish. You camp along the way in spots of your choosing. Most trips are 8 days and 7 nights. You are picked up by float-plane and returned to the Nonvianuk Camp. Fly-outs are optional fishing detours that are offered by the Brooks Lodge. You can fly to nearby locations and experience an assortment of fly fishing adventures. The Anglers Paradise Lodges live up to their name. Come enjoy nature like you never have before.
