The Royal Wolf Lodge sits on a spur of land in the middle of the Katmai National Park. The lodge owns 120 acres and includes private fishing grounds which are set amid the gentle rolling mountains and next to lakes, rivers and streams that offer outstanding fishing opportunities. Royal Wolf Lodge is a fly-out lodge and focuses its fishing trips on the rivers and fishing spots that hold the best fish for the season. Every river in Alaska is different and understanding the rivers provides you with the best opportunity to land trophy fish. That understanding is what the Royal Wolf Lodge provides to its guests.

The Royal Wolf Lodge is a top tier fly fishing lodge that is richly appointed and luxurious. The private cabins surround the main lodge and offer world-class accommodations. Each cabin is themed based and decorated according to its name. There are cabin choices between the Wolf, Loon, Caribou, Moose, Grizzly Bear and the Eagles Nest. Expect comfortable beds, quality linens, and privacy. While the accommodations are all about comfort and relaxing, the primary focus is on fishing. The Royal Wolf Lodge is an outstanding starting point for fly-out fishing trips in the Southwest corner of Bristol Bay.

Trophy Sized Rainbow Trout, 18 Pounds of pure Fight in Rivers that are designated as the Rainbow Trout Fly Fishing destination in Alaska

The surrounding areas offers extreme choices of some of the best fly fishing locations within Alaska. The Kvijack, Alangnak and Naknek drainage systems are easy fly out destinations that offer fishermen pristine streams and river corridors for trophy sized Rainbow Trout and other species of sports fish that offer a high caliber fight. Travel to fishing spots is by Helio float planes, and most flights are under 30 minutes because the area is just rich in outstandingly high grade fishing spots. This is Rainbow Trout county, and it is not uncommon to fight a 22-26 inch fish. Sometimes the rainbows grow to 30 inches. All you need is a fly rod, fly, and a guide who knows where to put you. The rest is easy money. This is a perfect location for veteran or amateur fishermen.

Outstanding Selection in smaller streams with Clear Water and Gravel Bottoms

In addition to massive Rainbows, the local waters hold Dolly Varden. These are Char that look like trout, and they are massive fighters. Dolly Varden are bright spotted fish with red or yellow spots, whereas a trout had black, green or brown spots. Both are related to salmon. This is also an excellent area to find Sockeye salmon, especially in July when as many as 3 million Sockeye migrate through the local rivers. These waters are also home to Arctic Grayling, which reach a maximum length of 22 inches. Graylings have a sailfin that lets them fly through the water. It is not uncommon for them to breach and fight like a much larger fish. They are crafty though, and the fun in fishing for Grayling is pure skill.

Summer Sizzles in the hottest fishing area in Alaska

The inland area of Bristol bay is a fly fisherman's paradise. The guides at the Royal Wolf Lodge are dripping in experience. We are talking 25 years of successfully fishing these waters. That experience is at your disposal. Veteran fishermen will walk way learning something. Beginning fishermen will walk away with the experience and skills to carry on fishing when they get back home. This is a quiet and beautiful spot that is full of wildlife, photo ops and fish. Enjoy Royal Wolf Lodge and all that they offer.
