Copper River Lodge

Lake Illiamna, Alaska Sport Fishing Lodge



The Copper River Lodge is a small Alaska fly fishing lodge that caters to only six people per week. The small group size ensures personal service, relaxing atmosphere, less people and more time on the river.

The Copper River is one of the premier wild Alaska rainbow trout rivers; and considered by many, one of the premier rivers in the world. It is a State of Alaska designated "trophy rainbow river" and regulated to "fly fishing only; catch and release." It is this designation that has kept the fishing on the river so outstanding.

Fishing Program

Unlike other tundra rivers in Alaska offering large trout, the Copper River runs through a scenic river valley lined with groves of cottonwood, spruce, and birch.  Aside from helping make it one of the most gorgeous rivers in the state, these trees offer the fly fishermen refuge from the relentless northern winds.  Probably one of the nicest surprises for anglers visiting the Copper River is it's  size and wade ability.

Fishermen of any age or skill that desire the solitude of the river rather than the tutelage of the guide can comfortably and successfully fish on their own. The Copper River rainbow trout are some of the largest in Alaska, and are the reason the Copper River was the first river in the state designated a "fly fishing, catch and release only, trophy rainbow river." It is this designation that has kept the fishing so spectacular

They also offer trips to the Upper Copper River which is inaccessible by jet boat and can only be reached by floatplane. Fishing the Upper Copper River requires a private fishery permit and is very unique to CRL.

Accommodations & Dining

From your arrival on the dock until your departure, you will enjoy an unrivaled standard of personalized service while at the Copper River Lodge.

Flexibility is the key to any vacation. If you want to sleep in and fish a little later, or see another stretch of river, your yearnings will never be far from reality.

The gourmet food will leave nothing to be desired. Fresh baked bread, pastries, and rolls complement meals created by our professional kitchen staff. If there is something you crave, or if you have dietary restrictions, just let us know.
