Katmai Trophy Lodge is located on the banks of the famed Naknek River, perfectly situated on the edge of tide water, providing quick access to both ocean- fresh salmon and the trophy rainbow trout fishing that the Naknek is famous for. This is a full-service fishing lodge in the heart of Bristol Bay just two miles outside the boundary of the world- renowned Katmai National Park. The Bristol Bay watershed is home to the largest runs of salmon in the world. A lesser known fact is that it is Alaska’s only designated “Trophy Rainbow Trout” area. The river system starts in the snow-capped mountains of Katmai National Park flowing down through our beautiful chain of lakes, through rolling tundra hills, ending with the Naknek flowing into the Bering Sea. This unspoiled nutrient rich environment enables fish to grow to incredible size.
With salmon runs that number in the millions, Trout and Char that grow well over 30”, and some of the best bear viewing in the world this is a travel experience you can’t miss.
