The Lodge sits in a sheltered bay on the eastern shore of Lake Iliamna, providing easy access to the best trout and salmon rivers in the Katmai/Bristol Bay area. The world-famous Copper and Gibraltar Rivers are the home rivers accessed by boat. There are also many fly-out rivers very close, meaning short flights. The Moraine, Funnel, Battle, American, Kvichak, New Halen, and Talarik Rivers are on the docket for world-class trout and salmon fishing action. The Kamishak and Alagnak River provides quality king salmon fishing for those interested. Either fly or spin fishing for kings.
