Having stayed at Katmai Lodge 20 times, I have seen a recent, well designed improvement . Always supported by outstaning staff, this remarkably sited salmon and trout fishing lodge was recently purchased by a new owner who has been a long - term visitor himself, and so with deep personal experience in hand, he has set about improving the customer...

1. I encourage you to do a bit more research than you might for a different kind of vacation. This is a fishing vacation. The cost is high compared to many other types of vacations. Do everything you can to get the most for your money. 2. The location is listed as King Salmon on Trip Advisor. The location is... More

We had friends with us that are avid fishermen spending thousands to catch 1 or two fish on this trip they caught more in one day than the last 20 years. This... More

We have visited Katmai Lodge in the past and have always had a great experience! This year we brought all of our kids (age 5, 8, and 11) plus my parents. I was a little unsure about how the young ones might do, but the guides were wonderful in taking care of them! They helped them with fishing, kept them... More

Katmai has it all! This is the second time my husband and I have been to Katmai....but definitely not our last! The fishing is great every day, even if the weather isn't. Accommodations are comfortable, especially considering the remote location of the lodge. Food is filling with plenty of daily choices. This is not fine dining, but the kitchen staff... More

The guides and staff at Katmai Lodge pay attention to the fine details. As result, time spent at the lodge and fishing was very productive and enjoyable. Our guide Nat was exceptional, a true professional. He took much interest in his clients wishes and in educating us on the Alagnak River, habits of the fish and other wildlife, and is... More

This was my first trip with my son and had the best time ever. Staff was attentive to our needs and food was outstanding. . Lodge was comfortable and clean. Location was perfect for a full variety of fish in a short boat ride. We are already planning a return trip.

This was my first visit to Katmai and first time ever fishing in Alaska. Needless to say I was not disappointed. The fish productivity in the Alagnak is amazing and the guides are well skilled in finding fish and recommending techniques for catching them. After a slow first day we loaded up on sockeye salmon the next two days and... More

It couldn't be easier to book, stay, and enjoy a trip to Katmai Lodge. The staff are all professional, and the lodge itself is comfortable and enjoyable. The food is great and our guide, Nick, was awesome. I would highly recommend the lodge for an Alaskan experience.

I just returned from my second fly fishing trip to Katmai Lodge. This time I went with my son (17) and another dad and his son (17).
