Big Ku Lodge its on the outlet of Lake Kukaklek within the Katmai and Iliamna region of Alaska. What does that mean for you? It means prime Rainbow Trout country. By prime, we are talking up to 18 pounds and sometimes as long as 30 inches. The lodge is located almost 2 hours due west of Anchorage in the inland area of Bristol Bay. The lodge is rustic, modern and practical and has all of the creature comforts of home. Guestrooms have private bath, and the beds are comfortable. Meals are served in the dining room family style. There are never more than six guests, and each of the three rooms is double occupancy. The view from the lodge will forever be etched on your heart. It is stunningly beautiful and full of color. The fishing here will be remembered for the rest of your life.
Seasonal specialties with Monster sized fish June-September
June: Can be one of the busiest times of the year in the local rivers and creeks. If the winter has been long then the fish know, the summer will be short. They are active, hungry, and breeding. That makes for outstandingly aggressive fight when hooked and their veracious appetite means your fly is a prime food target.
July: July can be overrun with Salmon. That is not a bad thing for fishermen. The salmon are awesome to catch on a fly, but the Rainbows follow them to take advantage of the roe. 2-3 million Chinook Salmon migrate through the area each year.
August: The salmon continue spawning, but the insect population is also in full swing. A variety of flies work well during August and into September.
September: The fish are full and packing on winter weight. The guides here will show you how to catch massive Rainbows during this time.
