The Aniak River Lodge is actually a fish camp along the upper stretches of the Aniak River. Guests fly into Aniak and are picked up at the airport and then transferred to the base camp where they prepare to fish. They are then taken by boat up the Aniak River for 40 miles where the camp is located. It is a fairly easy trip by boat and along the way guests stop and fish.
The Aniak Upper River camp is fairly plush. Guests are housed in tent cabins with wooden floors and carpeting. The camp features hot and cold running water, excellent shower facilities, a drying tent for waders and gear. The cabins feature heaters, padded cots, and sleeping bags with clean linen. The dining tent is where everyone gathers for meals and guests are treated to wonderful food in the beautiful wilds of Alaska. Overall, expect a comfortable trip with plenty of fishing and outstanding hosts.

Targeting Specific Fish
The rainbows are also fun to catch as are the char. Dolly Varden are char that look somewhat like rainbow trout. They are cousins to both the rainbow and the salmon. They are a beautiful fish that is full of fight and are a bit crafty. The Arctic Grayling are small fish that offer a lot of fun for fly fishermen.
