THE Lodge

Once you arrive in Illiamna, AK, you will have a short shuttle ride to the float plan loading area. After a 40 minute bush plane flight, you will land on the Mulchatna River at the doorstep of our remote river lodge. After registration, you can retire to your room to settle in, then get oriented and acquainted with your personal guide and vision for your premiere fishing experience. If you choose the remote river rafting option, your arrival will take a much different approach.

Enjoy gourmet meals prepared by our professional trained chef. He prides himself on not only presentation, but the exquisite taste qualities of each dish from his kitchen. Enjoy dishes and entrees like Prime Rib, King Crab, Fresh Salmon, Ribs and other mouth watering options. We do cater to those with special dietary needs, but given our remote location, need to know well in advance.

After arriving, before leaving, and in down time during the week many guests find themselves enjoying the serene and peaceful setting of our courtyard and firepit. With 80 acres of private land, surrounded by state land provides for a TRUE remote Alaskan experience. We love to talk story and get acquainted with each other as we share this beautiful setting with each client and friend.

Our professional and personal guides will make sure all of your trip needs are taken care of. We pride ourselves on not only providing the best personal fishing experience in Alaska, but being the best stewards of the area we protect and fish. If you enjoy your own fishing gear, bring it. Baggage weight is limited, so we have fly fishing and spin fishing gear available for use. We have waders, boots, and additional fishing gear if needed, but please request ahead of time. With our guides experience, you literally have to sit back and catch fish with simple directions.

While fishing is our main activity, wildlife viewing is abundant and sometimes exhilarating. While seeing large animals isn’t a daily event, we do see plenty of bears, caribou, moose, wolves, wolverines, eagles and various other animals. If you are interested in a wildlife viewing flight, please inquire for more details. It’s truly amazing to experience such a remote place, still untouched by man.

We look forward to helping you create an unforgettable fishing experience in remote Alaska. It is hard to find a lodge that is remote, authentic, and still comfortable. We take pride in sharing this beautiful country with our guests. We are family friendly and many couples enjoy the retreat like feel of our isolated location. We have trained guides with Wilderness First Responder and First Aid Training. The lodge provides a very safe atmosphere and welcome to all with a sense of adventure.
