Experience many fishing methods on a variety of rivers teeming with local species

Bristol Bay Lodge has fine-tuned its fishing program to focus on diversity. Guides specialize in using a variety of methods to catch a wealth of species on several different rivers. From fly fishing and nymphing to streamer fishing, guides can help you choose the best techniques and equipment.
Productive home water fishing is also available close by. Just a short boat ride from the lodge's front door is the world-famous Agulowak River, renowned for its plentiful Rainbows, grayling, char, Dolly Varden, and Sockeye Salmon. Target Silvers on the lower river, Rainbows on the upper river, or Char and other species in other spots. The lodge also maintains two separate camps on the Togiak River that keep guides in touch with fishing and weather conditions.

At Home in the Wilderness

You might stay in one of eight rooms in the main lodge, which boasts a professional kitchen, bar, and fully-equipped fly tying bench, or in one of the four unique private cabins. Either way, you'll overlook majestic Lake Aleknagik and the surrounding mountains of Wood-TikChik Park, America's largest state park. Guests can fish the famed Agulowak and Agulopak rivers inside the park. These rivers are replete with Rainbows, grayling, char, and Dolly Varden all summer long, and home to the largest Sockeye Salmon run in the world. Moose, caribou and brown bear are frequently spotted during the summer months.

Enjoy unique outpost camps on rare and private waters

Bristol Bay Lodge maintains exclusive leases on the two most incredible river fisheries in the region. Stay overnight at either Birch Creek Camp or Rainbo Camp to access these rare waters for a truly unforgettable experience. Rainbo Camp is located on the tidewater/confluence of two exceptional rivers. Both camps accommodate small, intimate groups of four to six people. Both of these recently upgraded camps offer fixed beds, a full service lavatory, delicious cuisine, satellite communication, and a small, experienced resident staff.
