Would you like to experience a true Alaskan lodge? Look no further than ATA Lodge (Alaska Trophy Adventures) on the Alagnak River, located in the Bristol Bay region of Katmai National Park. Only accessible by aircraft, the lodge is located on 160 acres of prime river frontage overlooking one of the most scenic pieces of the Alagnak river known as the upper braids. Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge offers five species of salmon as well as the resident prized rainbow trout, grayling and dolly varden. The runs of fish are as prolific at ATA as anywhere else with an estimated 2.75 to 4.5 million fish running the river depending on the year.
The lodge itself has eight private riverside cabins or if you are travelling with a group there is a perfect chalet that sleeps six to eight people. All cabins are equipped with running water, comfortable beds, heating and power, with an outlook of the river. There is no finer sight than watching the sunrise over the river or watching the bears hunt for salmon from your cabin.
ATA not only excels with the fishing. The area is full of wildlife and therefore a photographer’s paradise, so much so that the lodge runs certain weeks focused on the photography as well as the fishing.
