Bristol Bay, Alaska Sportfishing Lodge
Alaska Sportsman's Lodge fishes by wading, drifting, casting, or plugging. You can fly fish or use conventional gear. There are streams that are designated as fly fishing only areas and there are rivers that allow either fly fishing or the use of conventional gear. The type of fishing you do is your choice. Your guide is there to help you and to educate you about the rivers we fish. They will fish you whichever way you enjoy the most. All of the methods are successful at producing fish. The Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge was built on the Kvichak River for three very important reasons. First, the Kvichak River has the largest salmon run in the world that swims right past the lodge every summer. Secondly, the Kvichak River has some of Alaska’s largest rainbow trout. Period! The Kvichak will consistently produce rainbow trout in excess of 27″. The population of fish is very healthy and the fish are protected by Alaska Department of Fish & Game regulations for catch & release. The third reason the Kvichak River was our desired location to build our original lodge was because of the close proximity to other excellent fishing streams that can be quickly accessed by using the lodge floatplanes. We are only short flights from some excellent fly fishing only streams for rainbows and to some fantastic salmon streams. By locating the lodge on a trophy river such as the Kvichak, ASL has assured their guests that they will have the opportunity to fish every day during their stay at the lodge.
Fish Species – Rainbow Trout, 5 Species of Pacific Salmon, Arctic Char, Arctic Grayling, Northern Pike, Halibut
The Alaska Sportsman's Lodge consists of a 3,500 square foot solid cedar chalet style main lodge, three duplex cabins for guests, the "Iliamna" guest cabin, and a wood burning sauna. The lodge will accommodate 16 exclusive guests per night and all the cabins have hot and cold running water and 24 hour a day electrical service from our generator plant. The main lodge has a hardwood floored dinning room; a comfortable living room with a fireplace, couches and rockers; a wet bar; a fly tying area; a tackle/guides room; a loft with a reading area and map room; and a laundry room. The main lodge is spacious enough for all of the guests to stretch out and relax, yet it is intimate enough to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow guests and guides.
The guest cabins were designed for comfort and all have breathtaking views of the Kvichak River. Each double occupancy room is complete with a private bathroom, shower, and two very comfortable beds with linens, and comforters. Each day your room will be cleaned by the ASL staff members. The entire lodge is connected by a boardwalk that runs from the floating dock up to the main lodge.
The lodge chef will prepare three hearty meals each day. All meals are served home style and are all-you-can-eat. Breakfast includes hot and cold cereals, muffins, breads, fruits, eggs, French toast, pancakes, bacon, sausage, reindeer sausage, juices, and coffee. The lunch usually consists of sandwiches and soups. A shore lunch can be arranged with your guide and adds a nice experience on a nice day. Dinner menus include Alaskan style appetizers, NY Strips, prime rib, crab legs, fresh salmon, halibut, shrimp, chicken, and pork. Delicious desserts complete these excellent dinners.
