The comforts of home

amongst the wild Alaskan outdoors

Our Fishing Lodge... is sitting in not only the heart of Alaska’s best fishing area, it is also surrounded by breath-taking Alaskan scenery. Nestled among pines overlooking the Iliamna River where our float planes land and take off, the lodge gives our guests easy access to fabled local waters to fish for Trout, Salmon, and Char.

Our newly built spacious cabins are appointed with efficient heating, walk-in showers, and a front porch that offers fantastic views of nearby peaks and the Iliamna River.

Newly constructed

Main lodge facility

You have heard the saying "imitation is the finest form of flattery".  That's exactly what we did.  We modeled our new lodge facility after our sister lodge Rainbow River Lodge  and we overproduced.  The new facility is spectacular with it's views overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Iliamna River with the backdrop of rugged Alaskan mountains.   It literally takes your breath away!

  • Absolutely wonderful! A highlight of many years. Tell the world! The food was spectacular, seven days in a row. Every one of the staff was courteous, knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful. Great crew! Facilities like nowhere I have been. We appreciate you all. God’s blessing to you all.

  • We had an outstanding week. The lodge and cabins are first rate. Food is wonderful and better than you find in any lodge. The staff are very accommodating and take care of everything. And of course the fishing is over the top fantastic. Big fish and lots of fish. Everything at the lodge is an adventure. Travel by bay boat, jet boats and floatplanes. Something new each day and all kinds of different beautiful water to fish. We are already trying to figure out when we can return. Guides are expert in the local waters and are excellent coaches and companions on the water. Bill and his wife and two sons are special people who want to make sure you have a great time and leave the hustle and bustle of work behind so you can recharge your batteries on your escape from civilization.

  • Bill and company, I want to thank you for a really terrific week. Everything about the trip was awesome--The lodge and bed were super comfy, the food was fantastic and, most of all, all of the staff and guides were attentive, knowledgeable, upbeat and excellent. The coffee brought to the room in the morning is a perfect start to the day. Breakfast is plentiful and good fuel to get going, the fishing diverse and fantastic, and the evening meal and company were always outstanding, even if we guests were worn out from landing so many lunkers!
