Fishing & Guided Activities
Tikchik Narrows Lodge is located in the heart of the Wood Tikchik State Park (the largest State Park in the U.S.). This strategic location gives them easy access to a large number of exceptional trout and salmon fisheries. Tikchik Narrows Lodge is completely isolated with terrific local fishing from the lodge without the need to fly out.
Over the past 25 years, Tikchik has developed a fishing program that is diverse and capitalizes on knowledge of where and when to find the best fishing in their region. Tikchik enjoys a variety of water to fish. Both spin and fly anglers will find these waters challenging for advanced anglers yet accommodating for novices.
Tikchik fishes the entire western half of Bristol Bay, which includes the Nushagak River drainage, Wood River Lakes system, Togiak River drainage, Kulukak River, Tikchik Lakes and some Iliamna water. These rivers and streams of Bristol Bay vary in size from large rivers to very tiny streams and everything in between. With the use of lodge float planes and boats the Tikchik field program is extensive and dynamic. As the season and fisheries change, the lodge staff will move boats and set up new camps, positioning themselves to capitalize on the best fishing.
