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). Overall, a fabulous experience and we are already planning a return trip. Anne, Mary and Tom made our trip planning a piece of cake. They were a delight to deal with and very... More

My Dad and I have stayed at Katmai about 15 times over the years. It's a wonderful place and the people who run it are very friendly including the Guides. Being on the Water all day catching Fish is a blast and you come back to camp and feel rested and ready for great food for dinner. Our Guides have... More

This trip was so good and the total disconnect from communication so wonderful, after five days we extended the trip to ten days! We planned on 7 days with clients and our goal was really fly fishing for trout, although a few of us landed salmon on our fly rods. We had five novice and one advanced fly fisherman and... More

Hi, Myself and my 15 year old son had a great time on our trip to Katmai Lodge. We stayed for four days of fishing and it seemed like we caught more fish everyday. The fish we caught were mostly silver salmon between 8 and 15lbs. Our Guide was great and the time fishing was very interesting. We saw bears... More

This is prime fishing in the lap of luxury. Lots of action - kings, reds, rainbows and more. The lodge guides know the river and tailor a good fishing experience to the interests and abilities of the guests. Gourmet breakfasts and dinners are topped only by fresh grilled salmon for lunch on the river. Charter with Alaska Central Express out... More

This was my 1st trip to Alaska but I can't imagine anyplace better. The staff treated us like family and made every effort to insure that our trip exceeded expectations. Our food was exceptional and the lodging clean and comfortable. During our trip we found that other lodges were flying to the Alagnak (our river) for the best fishing. If... More

If you are looking for the fishing trip of your lifetime, the Katmai lodge is your obvious choice. The friendly caring attitude of the staff is genuine and not just a transparent marketing ploy. Guests are made to feel like they are part of the family. Every aspect of my recent trip to the Katmai Lodge exceeded my expectations by... More
