|The Kanektok River||
This special river is known as a fish factory by those in the know, and our anglers return year after year.
|The Fishing Lodge||
This Alaska flyout fishing lodge is located right on the Kanektok River, just eight miles upriver from the salt. That equals fresh, chrome salmon.
While not a luxury lodge, this fixed-base tent lodge offers outstanding service, and Alaska gourmet cuisine. You’ll sleep in heated tents with carpeted wooden floors. The dining tent is furnished with gas ranges, convection oven, microwave, refrigerators and freezers. The Lounge tent is where you will hang out. It has comfortable tables and chairs, a refrigerator stocked with drinks, poker chips, cards, board games, dart board, magazines, books, a telephone, satellite TV and some fly tying material and equipment. There is also a drying tent, showers and sinks with hot running water and outhouse facilities.
The Kanektok River is an incredibly productive fishery and folks who know call it a ‘fish factory.‘ Most of our guests like catching a variety of fish species – all season long we have trout, dolly varden and grayling available, and various salmon species as well. King salmon are available from the third week of June through end middle of July, and silver salmon are a target from late July through the end of August.
In late July, many of our guests like to pursue the Salmon Grand Slam – all five species of Pacific salmon, all on flies, all on the same day. We use a variety of fly fishing techniques when we’re going for the Grand Slam, and that’s a big part of the fun – lots of techniques, lots of fish, lots of different water.
The Rainbow trout are big, and they hammer the flesh, egg, sculpin and leech patterns! You can even ‘mouse’ for them with giant dry flies that imitate mice and voles
Most anglers, like to catch a variety of fish species – mid June, through August, you can fish trout, dolly varden, grayling, and salmon.
– The King salmon run is the second week of June through the middle of July.

Kanektok River, Alaska Flyout Fishing Lodge
Fish the Kanektok River for all five species of Pacific salmon, as well as rainbow trout, dolly varden and grayling. Our guests stay with us at the lodge each night and go fishing each day with two anglers per guide fishing out of 18 foot jet boats.
Accommodations are ‘comfortable but casual.’ This flyout fishing lodge in Alaska prides itself on a very high level of service and on delivering a great experience during your stay. However, they’re not not trying to be a ‘luxury lodge.’ The atmosphere is relaxing and a heck of a lot of fun.
