Katmai Lodge: Big Fish On The Alagnak River


Katmai, Alaska – December 5, 2013 – Katmai Lodge is excited to announce its 35th season of exceptional fishing on the Alagnak River. Recently, Robert Follman of California acquired Katmai Lodge and under his new direction and leadership, Mr. Follman is committed to continuing Katmai’s great tradition of service, on the best fishing river in Alaska. He has been coming to Katmai Lodge for over 20 years and he and the entire staff look forward to making your fishing trip one of the most amazing experiences of your life.

Accessed through its private airstrip with its own amphibious equipped Turbine Otter, the main lodge rests atop a bluff overlooking the Alagnak River, offering hundreds of miles of fishing in Alaska’s only designated Trophy Fishing Area. Already one of the great fishing ecosystems in Alaska, fishing on the Alagnak River continues to improve. The pristine river is uniquely home to all five Pacific Salmon species along with native stream fish such as Rainbow trout, Artic Grayling and Dolly Varden/Char, with four or five salmon species spawning within two miles below and 45 miles above the lodge. The region is also home to a diverse array of wildlife, which provides amazing photo opportunities.


An experienced guide staff personalizes each guest experience, making use of the lodge’s thirty boats to explore the full range of the Alagnak. Our river-based lodge is only ten minutes away from tidewater. Its diverse fleet of both jet and prop boats allows for both sea fresh salmon and rainbow trout fishing, while the lodge’s floatplane enables easy access to Katmai National Park for viewing the renowned Brooks Falls brown bears and for fishing the area’s many blue ribbon trout streams. When off the water, anglers are encouraged to enjoy the unrivaled amenities of Katmai Lodge, which boasts more square footage per guest than any other lodge in Alaska. World-class chefs prepare hearty breakfasts and gourmet dinners in the central dining room. The main lodge includes a fully stocked fly-tying area complete with expert instruction, central gathering place, a clothing and gift shop as well as internet access. Adjacent guest cabins welcome anglers to rest and relax, offering the privacy of individual common areas. The high season for Alaskan salmon fishing at Katmai’s Lodge runs from late June through September, with trout season opening June 8th. Booking has already begun for 2014.
