Bristol Bay Lodge offers fishing for all 5 species of Pacific salmon, Alaska's famous leopard-spotted rainbow trout, sea-run dolly varden, arctic char, grayling and northern pike.

No one else can offer this unique rotation schedule which combines day and overnight fishing trips, first-class accommodations and attentive service. For an impeccably run fishing operation, look no further than Bristol Bay Lodge. The fishing area includes Wood, TikChik, Nushagak, Togiak and Goodnews Rivers.

Fishing

A guest favorite for an unparalleled fly-out fishing experience, the lodge is strategically located in the heart of North America's largest state park, Wood-Tikchik. With such pristine surroundings at this private hideaway, guests can expect to catch a great abundance and variety of fish.

Accommodation

The 8 guest rooms in the main lodge are arranged for single or double occupancy, with queen or double beds. Each has a private bathroom, comfortable furnishings and at-home ambiance. The 3 cabins separate from the main lodge have living and bedrooms, bathroom, wet bars and fireplaces.
