FLOAT PLANES, JET BOATS, RAINBOWS, CHAR, SALMON, BEARS AND…
Spend a day flying out to a remote river, or running upstream on a jet boat and sight fishing for wild trout, char, and salmon. Explore the bends and oxbows filled with native Char and trophy rainbows in the crystal clear waters of Lake Iliamna watershed of Bristol Bay. Hear the roar of bears in distant valleys under the watchful gaze of bald and golden eagles. All this and more is waiting for you at the Iliamna River Lodge
They say variety is a spice, but it’s also a gateway to unimagined possibilities. The ability to make a last minute decision to chase fish on the coast or jump a float plane to explore distant water is the most important ingredient to unparalleled adventure. What will tomorrow hold? There’s nothing quite like enjoying a first-class meal back at the lodge, then huddling with your guide to stoke the imagination and make a plan just hours before the dawn. The guides and pilots of the Iliamna River Lodge will show you the seemingly infinite space that Alaska offers to the angler who dares to explore and push their boundaries.
“Amazing staff, fishing, lodging and activities. IRL exceeded all of my expectations. The family atmosphere was refreshing. Definitely the best fishing trip I’ve ever been on. Food better than any restaurant I’ve ever been in. Hands down the most friendly and helpful staff. Amazing and so kind; always willing to help. All of the guides were extremely helpful and encouraging. Amazing lodge!”
