Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is the perfect wilderness fishing retreat. Boasting a world-famous run of all five species of Pacific Salmon, plus a host of resident fish, such as Leopard Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char and Grayling.
The Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is located in the Bristol Bay region of Katmai National Park and sits on 160 acres of prime river frontage in an iconic section of the Alagnak River known as the Upper Braids. The only access to the Lodge is via a bush plane and is only a short 25 minute flight from King Salmon landing on a private airstrip located on the property. The complex is made of high quality wooden cabins of various sizes, there is also the main lodge where all meals are served and welcome drinks after a great day spent on the river, basically the lodge has everything you will need to guarantee you a comfortable stay.
Just 6 miles upstream from the Lodge is where two rivers (Kukaklek and Nonvianuk) join to form the Alagnak. Because of the lodges prime location and fleet of jet boats you are able to access all 3 rivers and all the many species that swim through the rivers.
Alagnak River (A-lag-nak)
This prestigious river is located within Katmai National Park, with its headwaters in the surrounding mountains and draining into Bristol Bay. It is also known as the Branch River, for its seemingly endless braided river channels. Wading and fishing are made easy on the many small natural islands and gravel bars, which the river flow creates. The Alagnak has world-famous runs of all five species of Pacific Salmon, and is home to a host of resident fish. Crystal clear water allows for perfect stalking conditions, whilst slow runs and fast riffles are common place, with pools well suited to holding pods of staging Salmon, often 35+ lbs., when targeting the kings. With hatches occurring throughout the season, it is not rare to see a resident trout or grayling rise.
Kukaklek River (Ku-ka-click)
Flowing out of Kukaklek Lake the river runs 19-miles through mostly fast flowing technical water until it reaches the confluence and joins with the Nonvianuk river to form the Alagnak. The Kukaklek is well known for its short section of narrow, class 3 rapids contained by steep canyon walls. When fishing this unique river, we spend most our time either in the lower 5 miles or the upper 6 miles, which are ideal for targeting Rainbow Trout. The upper section near the mouth of the lake is particularly good Trout fishing, in particular as the Salmon start to spawn.
Nonvianuk River (Non-vi-on-uk)
The Nonvianuk River runs 11-miles from its mouth at Nonvianuk Lake to where it meets the Kukaklek River to form the Alagnak. The Nonvianuk river is mostly class 2 technical water, with many bolder gardens and shallow sections. Surrounded by rolling hills of tundra, there is a very “open feel” to the Nonvianuk River and it is a beautiful place to fish. The upper 4 miles of this river is the most productive and much like the Kukaklek it holds an abundance of Trout.
The Lodge itself is on 160 acres of prime river frontage of the Alagnak River. The only access to the Lodge is via bush plane, landing on a private airstrip located on the property. Welcoming wooden cabins are equipped with running water, heating and power, that will guarantee you a comfortable stay. With an abundance of wildlife and stunning scenery, this trip is sure to live up to the image of Alaska that you have always dreamed of.
