We visited as a party of six and our main aim was to watch the bears catching salmon. We did lots of research beforehand to try to find the best place in Alaska for bear watching. I think we hit the jackpot!! Linda was very helpful, promptly replied to my numerous emails and our trip to Royal Wolf was the...

Lots of the reviews comment on how Royal Wolf Lodge is a great place for serious fly fisherman. I think it is a great place for novices too. I have never done any fly fishing before, so when the opportunity for this trip came up I was quite apprehensive. I thought I would hang out at the Lodge most of...

My fishing friend and I were in Kamchatka last year but I believe our trip to the Royal Wolf Lodge exceed even that adventure for the variety and quality of the fishing. I was also surprised with the quality of the nationally known guides and their world wide experience. Their patience and coaching created a tremendous atmosphere for a fishing...

They really are famous; one is...

We went to Royal Wolf Lodge in June, we were so excited to fly fish for Rainbows and our fishing experience was beyond our dreams. When you read all the information about the lodge and the fishing on their Web pages, it is all TRUE. We loved flying out every morning to fish a different stream with a new guide....

If you love the sport of fly fishing and you like to catch BIG trout, then this is the place for you. The guides are great and tailor your fishing day just for you. The food and service can't be beat. You certainly get your monies worth. This is a trip of a lifetime.

We spent a week at Royal Wolf Lodge and fished for rainbow trout. It was the best dry fly fishing we have had in all our years of fishing. The "bows" we're huge and very hungry!!! Royal Wolf Lodge is a first class lodge!!
