This lodge was never supporting by the locals. The owners have never given back and have tried to claim land from native locals. The fishing economy is in a state of emergency, the owners were recently fined by Alaska dept. Of fish and game for taking fish when native locals could not even substance fish. They also bring back alcohol to distribute, which hurts the community.

John and Mary Rantz, and young Mallory, provided the best salmon fishing experience I've had in my life!! I enjoy catching salmon, large king salmon, and this is the place to do it!! John led us out each morning to catch chrome chinook after chrome chinook in the Chignik River. My arms were tired each day from fighting fish. Mary spoiled us with absolutely amazing food, unsurpassed by anything I've had in 5 star restaurants. What a treat! I look forward to returning for another trip!

My brothers and I visited Chignik Bay Adventures the first week in sept 2016. I have sportfished in Alaska for fifty years and have visited eight different fly in remote fishing lodges.In all my years of fishing,i have seldom enjoyed a fishing trip as much as I enjoyed this trip with John Rantz at Chignik Bay Adventures.This place has two major advantages compared to other lodges I have visited.Chignik bay,although very remote,still has access to commercial air service--this reduces the transportation cost by about a thousand dollars per person compared to a private charter.Second,the specially designed jet powered,shallow draft boat used by John allows easy access to both the excellent fly/spin fishing in the Chignik river and the salt water fishing in the bay.We successfully targeted both silvers(and dollies) in the river and kings in the bay. In short,the fishing was great,the lodge accomodations were great,the food was great(I gained four pounds unfortunately!!), the scenery and wildlife viewing was great(saw many bears) and most importantly, the people(John,Mary,Mal) were great. If you want to have a first class Alaska fishing adventure, for a reasonable cost, in a remote and beautiful location with quality people, I strongly recommend a trip to Chignik Bay Adventures.

Fantastic, incredible, unbelievable are only a few words to describe our trip to John and Mary Rantz's - Chignik Bay Adventure Lodge. Mary's home cooking is out of this world and the six pounds I gained is proof. The lodge and rooms are wonderful with all the amenities to relax after a long day of fishing. The fishing is hard to describe and make it sound believable. Numerous double and even triple King Salmon hookups and no worries about catching your limits and big fish. A day of Silver fishing was exciting and never a dull moment and learning how to fly fish from John and Mal was a great experience. We caught and released over 85 trout in less than 4 hours, no exaggeration. This was the fastest week I can remember time just flew bye. Can't wait to do it again. Thanks Rantz Team

John and Mary Ann Rantz are absolutely fantastic. If you are looking for a great fishing experience, then this is the place to go. If you don't mind a long trip, then it won't get much better Chignik. We caught upwards of 30 kings per day and the majority were 20+ lbs. I got one at 33lbs. The fishing is only part of the experience as well. In addition to stunning scenery, when we got back to the lodge, Mary Ann was preparing one of her amazing dinners for us. This is truly all inclusive. Be prepared to gain some weight if you go! LOL! I sure did.
