The Alagnak Lodge is the perfect place for a fishing trip. Because the Alagnak River offers multiple species of pacific salmon, guests often choose to visit during the summer season. Accessible by a short boat ride, the lodge’s fishing areas boast clean waters and ample fish.

For even more fishing opportunities, guests are offered the opportunity to fly out to more secluded areas of Bristol Bay.

Visitors are welcome to bring their own equipment, but the lodge does offer a limited supply of gear.
