Everything about Katmai Lodge is first rate. The fishing is unbelievable, and the facilities are very comfortable (sauna, massage, etc.). The food is outstanding and plentiful. Best of all, the staff and guides are extremely welcoming and warm and will do whatever it takes to make sure you enjoy your stay. Can't wait to go back!

Katmai Lodge has great fishing for all the species you are looking for. I caught Sockeye Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling, and Dolly Vardon Char all in one day! The lodge sits right on the river and fly-outs are NOT needed to catch all the varieties. With decades of experience, but lots of recent upgrades, this place works hard to... More

This was my fourth time fishing at Katmai and it won't be my last. My family has stayed at the Katmai Lodge every two years for the last 10 years. The reason we keep coming back is the owners and staff provide great service across the board. Most recently (Week of July 4th, 2016) four of us stayed at the... More

From start to finish this is a "best of the best" operation. Never have I met a nicer group of individuals who were so intent on providing superior customer service and an amazing wilderness fishing experience. Reservations were meticulous in helping our group design a trip that provided exceptional lodging, fishing, dining and a float plane day trip to Katmai... More

My visit to Katmai was a totally wonderful experience. Never having done this type of trip prior, I did feel a little uneasy at first but from the minute I walked off the plane, the entire team at Katmai Lodge made me feel extremely comfortable and walked me/us through each step of the trip with ease, knowledge and a friendly...

We had excellent guides, great lodge accomodations and housekeeping staff, absolutely gormet meals, comfortable rooms, plenty of available activities, awe inspiring scenic views, and totally terrific fishing! We were there about six days and caught many salmon! One of my friends caught 60-70 salmon! If you are considering a salmon fishing trip, Katmai Lodge would be a great choice. Actually,... More

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 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
