Iliamna River Lodge
  • Approximate Cost:
    6 - 7 Days: $5,500 to $6,000 Per Person
  • Type: Lodges

The Iliamna River Lodge sits along the Iliamna River where it empties into Lake Iliamna. This is big fish country and the Lake Iliamna region is famous for big Rainbow Trout, outstanding Salmon Fishing, and a natural home for anyone who loves fly fishing. There is plenty of room for spin casters too.

Fishing with the Iliamna River Lodge

Guests of the lodge have access to freshwater fishing and can arrange a coastal excursion for fishing in saltwater. As a guest, you have access to King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Pink Salmon, Silver Salmon, and Chum or Dog Salmon - All five species of Pacific Salmon.

Fly Fishing for Rainbow Trout is a must during your stay as well as Rainbows grow quite large in these Alaskan waters.

Northern Pike are also plentiful, and if you like an explosive strike and big fish, then Northern Pike are a perfect attraction. These are big fish with plenty of power. They are ideal for both fly fishermen and spin casters.

Arctic Grayling are the tiny guys, and an average Grayling hits the 3-pound mark. A big Grayling hits four pounds, and a world-record might hit the five-pound mark.

Arctic Char are also present, and they are much like Rainbow Trout and Chum Salmon. They are somewhat aggressive and will fight with you. These guys make a great target for anyone looking for a solid 8-pound fish. The good thing about Arctic Char is that they can top the 20-pound mark, which puts them into the same category as small King Salmon and big Silver Salmon.

Expect your fishing trip to be well-organized and expertly guided. Even in Alaska where the fish are plentiful a guide makes all the difference, especially if you want to target the biggest Trophy Fish.

Lodging with the Iliamna River Lodge

The lodge sits unobtrusively amid the boreal pine forests and along the shores of a pristine fishery. The lodge offers a main building and a series of newly built cabins where guests can find comfort, peace, and beauty while not fishing.

The main lodge offers a large great room where you can sit and read, play poker, or just mingle and converse. The idea here is that comfort never looked so good. What looks even better is the food. Expect great food, big portions, and choices.
