An Alaska fishing resort like The Alaska Sportsman’s Bear Trail Lodge is the perfect playground for fishing novices and pros alike. The bank of the Naknek River, which is the top Alaska river for fishermen looking to catch trophy Rainbow Trout, is the home of this luxury wilderness haven. The giant main building of this Alaska fishing lodge is built of solid cedar, and is known for its stunning views of the remote Alaska wilderness. With the Naknek River rushing past its front porch, and the Katmai National Park and Preserve as its backyard, you will never find a finer Alaska fishing resort. This lodge and our fishing packages offer unforgettable wilderness adventures in the lap of luxury.
High in the Alaskan mountains that rise above this Alaska fishing resort, crystal clear snow-fed mountain creeks and springs converge to form the Naknek River. As this world famous river flows its 35 miles through the Katmai National Park and Preserve, it grows and becomes rushing fresh-water home to all 5 species of salmon and giant Rainbow Trout. Once it finally reaches the Bristol Bay watershed, it has become one of the most popular destinations for sport fishing in Alaska. The popularity of this fishing location also means that fishermen stand nearly shoulder to shoulder as they fish for the aggressive salmon that fill its waters. The remoteness of the Alaska Sportsman’s Bear Trail Lodge is what makes it superior to other fishing lodges. Our guests have the opportunity to fish in solitude; they are free to roam up and down a riverbank that is free of other fishermen.
The Alaska Sportsman’s Bear Trail Lodge is nestled on the bank of the confluence of the King Salmon Creek. This location is a mere 20 miles from the ocean, which means that the salmon in our waters are aggressive and strong, with giant Rainbow Trout swimming furiously at their heels. The Naknek River is the number one location for sport fishermen in search of the illustrious King salmon. In fact, the strongest runs of King salmon are within walking distance of the lodge. This river also offers the other 4 species of salmon; the Pink, Sockeye, and Chum salmon. Our all-inclusive fishing packages also provide an amazing fly out program that gives our guests the opportunity to explore the fish-filled streams and creeks of the remote Alaskan wilderness located right outside of our back door.
