The Kvichak River, one of Alaska’s premier destination trout and salmon rivers.  Amazing fishing with aggressive and the hardest fighting  pound for pound freshwater fish on the North American continent.

We fish the river with both single hand and double hand rods.  Your trip can include Trout, Grayling and Pike fishing:))

WHERE IS THE KVICHAK?  The Kvichak is the outlet river of lake Iliamna in western Alaska.  Lake Iliamna is Alaska’s largest lake and the Kvichak drains into Bristol Bay. The lodge is on Blueberry Island, 2 miles downstream from the lake.

WHEN IS THIS TRIP OFFERED and WHY? We offer this trip Sept 18 – Oct 18 By this time the pressure is LIGHT and although multiple tactics will work, the swing fishing is the focus!

HOW TO GET THERE?  Fly Into Anchorage and from Anchorage we will arrange a charter flight

THE LODGE is 15 ft, off of the river and it provides us with comfortable beds, hot showers, a great dining room & deck literally riverside.  The facility is comfortable & the food is thumbs up! We also offer a limited open bar!
