Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge sits in King Salmon, Alaska along the Naknek River - a world-famous fishing destination. The lodge sits near the entrance to the Katmai National Park, which is famous for its seasonal bear viewing and huge runs of salmon. The lodge is a short 280 miles from Anchorage and sits within the bountiful Bristol Bay Watershed. This is a fly-in lodge, giving guests that true wild Alaska feeling with all of the creature comforts of home. Expect first-class service and lodging.

Lodging with the Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge

Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge has room for 12-14 guests per week so the service here is top-shelf and the staff is warm and inviting. The lodge itself is beautiful with a large living area, comfortable seating, fireplace, amazing food and a million dollar view. Guests stay in one of the out-cabins. Each cabin features two double beds, a fireplace, furnished deck, TV, in-room Keurig Coffee Machine, and daily maid service.

Expect amazing meals from the professional staff including bountiful breakfasts, picnic lunches, and wholesome dinners with wine and beverages. The meals are wonderful, but the conversation is what makes the Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge feel like home.

Fishing with Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge

The Naknek River is an amazing and prolific body of water. Fishermen flock to the Naknek because the King Salmon are thick in the water. The average King Salmon is between 20-30 pounds. It is not uncommon to battle a 50 plus pound fish. The waters of the Naknek are crystal clear and are home to some amazing fish.

Guests enjoy King Salmon fishing from June-July and into August. A 9-11 weight rod is necessary. The Sockeye Salmon are present from June through July and are thick in the water. The Silver Salmon appear in July and remain through most of September. Expect 8-12 pound Silvers on average. The Chum Salmon show up in July and August and are almost as feisty as the Silver Salmon. Also known as the Dog Salmon these are amazingly fun fish to target. Another outstanding fish are the big Rainbow Trout which range to 24 inches on average and hit 30 inches for trophies. In the Fall, you have a huge selection of river fish as the Rainbows are fat, the Char are hungry, the Grayling congregating, and the Dolly Varden are all searching for stray Salmon Eggs.

Overall, you cannot help but to have a great time and an outstanding fishing adventure with Alaska's Gold Creek Lodge.
