Featured Packages


Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge site on 160 acres of prime river frontage in an iconic section of the Alagnak River known as the upper braids. The only access to the Lodge is via bush plane, landing on a private airstrip located on the property. Welcoming wooden cabins are equipped with running water, heating and power, that will guarantee you a comfortable stay. With an abundance of wildlife and stunning scenery, this trip is sure to live up to the image of Alaska that you have always dreamed of.

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.


If you are more in tune with nature and would rather spend your days floating down river on a raft, evenings setting up camp and sleeping in tent under the stars, then our float trip package is right up your ally. You will be dropped off with your guide at the source of the river and picked up miles downstream 7 days later. You will be expected to help with the setting up and breaking down of camp each day as well as other daily chores. Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. All meals included.


We provide everything you need for an unguided float trip except your fishing gear. Tents, bear containers, cots, rafts and all camping gear necessary are included and provided by us. Whether your interested in fishing for Pacific Salmon, Trophy Rainbow Trout or just want a week under the stars this is a great way to do it yourself.

We will send you and/or your group, off on this adventure trip with everything you need, from pots and pans to the rafts and tents you will be spending your days and nights in. This is a great way to live out your childhood dream of pitting yourself against a remote Alaskan river, with just a rod in hand, and no one to answer to. Now I like a warm bed and flush toilet myself, but don't let me stop you from living your dream! Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. Bring your own food.

The Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is an Alagnak River lodge that focuses on trophy fishing in a beautiful wilderness setting. The lodge sits along the shores of the Upper Braids of the Alagnak River offering fly fishermen a trip of a lifetime and fishing inside the Katmai National Park.

Lodging with Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge

The Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is tastefully laid out on a stunning piece of the Alagnak River. The main lodge has an outstanding dining room and makes a comfortable place for socializing. Guests stay in one of the eight out-cabins or Chalet, which range in size. Expect comfortable beds and plenty of amenities with outstanding access to some of the world's greatest fishing.

Fishing with the Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge

Expect big, beautiful fish such as Lake Trout; big, fat Rainbow Trout; Arctic Char, Northern Pike, and Arctic Grayling to round out the resident trophy fish. Guests also enjoy easy access to large runs of all 4 Pacific Salmon Species including King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Chum Salmon and Pink Salmon.

The King Salmon appear in good numbers ranging between 25,000 to 40,000 fish. The Best time to target Kings is the entire month of July.

Silver Salmon Show up in droves with the local migration between 120,000 and 150,000 fish. The prime season for Silvers is August through September.

Rainbows here are Leopard Rainbow Trout and they are aggressive feeders. Trophy Rainbows are available from June through September with peaks occurring in June and late August through September.

Arctic Char are similar to Rainbow Trout. These are big, fat fish that feast on roe. The prime time to target char is August through September when the Silver Salmon are swimming.

Arctic Grayling are an absolute thrill. The best time to target grayling is pretty much anytime. These are smart fish and will put up a good fight. Trophy Grayling are in the 18-21 inch range.

The best time to fish for Northern Pike is early in the season until around Mid-July. They are active again, later in the season too. Bring a steel leader with you because their 700 plus teeth will make short work of traditional line.

The lodge sits on 160 private acres with easy access to miles of prime fishing waters on three rivers as the ATA Lodge is just 6 miles downstream from the Confluence of two tributaries that make join to form the Alagnak River. Expect access to big trophy fish, and plenty of them.
