Alaska's Enchanted Lake Lodge
  • Approximate Cost:
    6 - 7 Days: $9,000+ Per Person
  • Type: Lodges
  • Fishing: Fly Fishing Freshwater Fishing Guided Fishing

Set within Katmai National Park on 54 acres of privately owned land, Enchanted Lake Lodge is well-situated for quick fly-outs to excellent fishing holes. Equipped with planes, jet boats and rafts, the lodge has quick access to the Brooks, Kulik, Battle, Big and Little Ku, American, Kvichak, Moraine, Funnel and many other rivers. With only 12 guests per week and six professional guides, the guide-to-guest ratio at Enchanted Lake allows for a high level of personalized service.

Located in the middle of the best rainbow trout fishing on the planet

Nestled within Katmai National Park's Bristol Bay, Enchanted Lake Lodge is a premier fishing location strategically located minutes from the region's most productive fisheries. In fact, the lodge prides itself on being a 'Rainbow focused' destination. Knowledgeable guides store jet boats at the largest rivers for quick access to the best spots for finding Rainbows.
June is an exciting time for visual fishing, as hungry trout chase salmon fry in the spring thaw-out. Try your hand at the spectacular streamer fishing on the larger river, or go sight fishing with dry flies. Spawning salmon make August an excellent time for snagging trout by sight in many of the shallow runs. It's also a great time for wildlife viewing, as eagles and bears feast on salmon. While September is cooler, it offers fatter fish who've been feasting in anticipation for winter. This is the best time to net a truly huge, trophy trout. You can also pursue all five species of Pacific salmon available throughout the season.

Experience outstanding fishing in casual luxury

This luxury lodge, which was completely remodeled in 2002, has gorgeous views of Nonvianuk Lake and the Walatka Mountains. Enjoy your private guest cabin, furnished with luxurious linens and a private bath, that will serve as your comfort HQ after a long day of fabulous fishing. Or, visit the lodge to warm up and let go in the wood-fired sauna. Afterwards, watch the sunset on one of two decks, with a bottle of wine nearby. The complimentary bar comes complete with fine wines, beer and spirits.

Fly out fishing every day with our DeHavilland Beaver floatplanes

Enchanted Lake Lodge has multiple classic DeHavilland Beaver floatplanes. The lodge is strategically located in the Bristol Bay area to keep flight times to a minimum. Most flights are only 5-20 minutes long, maximizing your time on the rivers and giving you plenty of opportunity to fish the prolific populations of trophy Rainbow, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden and Grayling. With so many choices and personalized service, your fishing preferences will be included in the day's itinerary. Immaculately-maintained planes and expert pilots make fishing fly-outs safe, fun, and a highlight for guests.
