Intricate Bay Lodge

Fly out to the best rivers of the Katmai from this newly built luxury lodge

The lodge sits in a sheltered bay on the eastern shore of Lake Illiamna, providing easy access to the best trout and salmon rivers in the Bristol Bay area. After a devastating fire, a beautiful, new state-of-the-art lodge was built in 2014. The “home” rivers are the Copper and Gibraltar; synonymous with big rainbows. Incredible dry fly action in the early season is a real draw and a brand new Beaver floatplane get guests to the best fishing in comfort. This “A” list lodge is one of the finest lodges in Bristol Bay. Great guides and gourmet meals complete your trip of a lifetime.

Fishing

The world famous Copper and Gibraltar Rivers are the home rivers accessed by boat. There are also many fly-out rivers very close, meaning short flights. The Moraine, Funnel, Battle, American, Kvichak, New Halen, and Talarik Rivers are on the docket for world-class trout and salmon fishing action.

Accommodation

Intricate Bay Lodge is a small venue operation with 5 double guest rooms to entertain 10 guests per week. Marvel at the magnificent view of the sun setting over Lake Iliamna while enjoying cocktails and appetizers. Weekly barbecues are held on the deck, with propane heaters to keep you cozy.

Gear

Combo of 6 and 8 wt. fly rod or a 5 and 7 wt. works well all season. Conventional: Lightweight rod/reel combo for smaller fish, and a medium action rod (6-7 ft.) for salmon. The lightweight reel should hold 150 yds. of 6-8 lb. mono. Salmon reels should hold at least 150 yds. of 12-15 lb. mono.
