Royal Coachman Lodge is perched on the Nuyakuk River in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska. It specializes in guiding guests to unbelievable fly fishing on uncrowded waters. The lodge fishes the Nushagak, Agulapak, and Kvichak Rivers, as well as several other rivers and streams. The Nuyakuk is a great home river that will not disappoint on the occasional no-fly-out day. Wonderful Rainbow fishing is available right in front of the lodge in the spring and fall. Schools of salmon are often seen from the lodge, and grayling are consistently plentiful in the lodge pool. Catch five salmon species, trophy Rainbow Trout, char, Dolly Varden, huge pike, grayling, and even the elusive Sheefish. Over 95% of clients in 2013 were either repeat guests or word of mouth referrals.
Our fisheries are uncrowded; you'll have the river all to yourself!
While Rainbow Trout are found in nearly all waters fished, you can spend evening time or no-fly days hunting them on the home river. They respond to a variety of fishing methods. Whether it's dry flies or nymphing early in the season, egg imitation around spawning, mouse flies, or streamers, knowledgeable guides can coach you on technique.
We are flexible and go where the fishing is the best
Sight fish for King Salmon, drift fish for rotund Rainbows, fight with an ornery pike, or catch a rare Sheefish. Sheefish are seldom-seen whitefish that make for excellent eating. Historically they've been a subsistence food for Alaska Natives and their dogs. Ones taken on summer feeding grounds put up the best fight. While the lodge doesn't focus on Sheefish, they catch several of these large, feisty fighters each year. Just let the staff know if you want to snag a Sheefish, and they'll do their best to make it happen.
We are the only lodge on the Nuyakuk River
