Boasting a world-famous run of all five species of pacific salmon, the Alagnak River is also home to a host of resident fish, such as leopard rainbow trout, arctic char and grayling. This prestigious river is located within the Katmai National Park, with its headwaters in the surrounding mountains and drains into Bristol Bay. It is also famously known as “The Branch River” for its seemingly endless braids, where 10 miles of river can easily contain 30 miles of fishable waters. With such exclusive river access, you are sure not to be bothered by any crowds.

This package includes all meals during your stay. 6 days of guided lodge based river experiences, whether it be fishing, wildlife- viewing or adventure activities. Comfortable heated riverfront cabin with access to toilet and hot showers only a few steps away from your cabin door, or en-suite toilet and hot showers. You will arrive on Sunday, and activities begin Monday through Saturday with departure on the following Sunday.


For those who think a toilet and bed is too extravagant and would rather spend their nights in a tent surrounded by the stars and sounds of the wild, we have the perfect package for you. Our guests will stay in a tent camp on the lower Alagnak river hosted by professional guides and targeting primarily fresh sea-run salmon. There is a possibility for Rainbow Camps near the Lake Outlets early season in June as well. Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. Your meals are included, and your help around camp is expected.

Yes, this is indeed the Whaler's Cove Lodge that hosts "Alaska's Fishing Paradise" on the Sportsman Channel! Whaler's Cove is located on Killisnoo Island, very close to the village of Angoon on Admiralty Island. The lodge fishes Alaska's Inside Passage on calm, sheltered, and crowd-free waters. These fishing grounds were originally discovered by the Tlingit Indians, who chose the area for its exceptional weather, calm waters, and superb fishing. After the Alaska Purchase, the abandoned Tlingit village became a trading stop for whalers, giving the lodge-to-be its very apt name.
