Absolutely the best fishing trip I’ve ever experienced. Guides were outstanding, everyone caught plenty of fish with all of us catching our personal best trout. Lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery, and at the end of the day we had excellent food prepared to a warm and friendly lodge staff. I can’t think of a single thing that could’ve been improved upon. Definitely coming back. Brian does an incredible job and all of his staff is exceptional.

For me, it's about the fish. If it's about the fish for you, this is the place to be. Many people have no clue what it's like to fish a stream and be the only one on the stream. Ohhh the excitement to stalk the fish of your dreams. There is a great chance this fish is going to investigate what you put before him! It's very hard to explain the pure joy to hold a beautiful fish, say "thank you" and gently release it back to the wild stream. This is not your average destination. Actually it's off the charts. If you can handle the possible elements in late season, the fat rainbows are plenty. I challenge you to go while the opportunity is available. It's a bonus to have the outstanding top notch guides, crew, lodge and planes. I have been to this lodge in July and September with exciting fishing each time. I personally prefer September for fat rainbows! Remember, it's about the fish so September is my favorite!

Great service and good early season Rainbow fishing with no salmon interference. Prefer to fish standard fly fishing for RBs. This is good in June. Then Sockeyes come in in large numbers and get in the way!

We stayed at Intricate Bay Lodge Sept 16-22. It was my 7th trip and my wife’s 5th. We loved each visit. We didn't not think it was possible for 2019 to be as good as 2018 but it as good and in some ways better. The fishing was outstanding! Every day we caught lots of large trout. The meals were what I would expect in a 4 star restaurant. This year’s staff was also the best ever, including the guides, Chef Brian, house staff and pilots Brian & Mark. Manager/owner Brian makes sure IBL keeps getting better! We’ll be back in 2020.

Simply Incredible! I'm still coming down from my Alaskan fly fishing high! My CGCG group has been fishing together for the past 20 years, and our recent trip to Intricate Bay Lodge was beyond awesome. The fishing was amazing -- voracious 20 to 28" rainbow trout aggressively feeding on sockeye salmon eggs and our fly imitations. My arms got fatigued from reeling in so many of those beautiful trophies! The guides were really great, and became true friends by the end of the week. Monte, Casey, Nick, Sam, Liam and Joey were so knowledgeable, happy, personable, eager to please and fun to be around. The flyouts were super cool, and the pilots Brian and Mark were professional but also really great guys. The Alaskan scenery is breathtaking, and when we weren't reeling in big fish, we were spotting the occasional grizzly bear or moose. It was amazing to recognize the legendary Monte Becker on the dock when we first arrived at the Lodge. We had the pleasure of fishing with Monte at the Magic Waters Lodge in Patagonia, Chile two years ago. What a small world when it comes to avid fly fishermen and world class lodges! The Intricate Bay Lodge is a gorgeous facility on beautiful Bristol Bay. The rooms are spacious, and the living room, dining room and bar are well appointed and very comfortable. The food was simply spectacular! Ryan the chef is supremely talented, with made to order hot breakfast and fabulous dinners. The lovely Chloe always greeted us with a smile, while warming up our coffee and running the dining room. Our last evening meal of Alaskan king crab and bacon wrapped filet was truly amazing. What really makes the operation stand out is the do-everything owner/manager Brian Harry. Brian first greeted us at the Illiamna Air Taxi service with his handsome smile and welcoming eyes. It is abundantly clear Brian is 'all in' as he pours his heart and soul into every aspect needed to make the lodge such a phenomenal success. Brian, thank you sincerely for sharing your slice of Heaven with all of us. We now have memories to last a lifetime, and can't wait to go back! Tom S.
