Home to the world’s largest Sockeye salmon run, trophy class Rainbow Trout, Coho, Chum, King, and Pink salmon, Arctic Char, Pike, Grayling, and Dolly Varden all set in a backdrop of indescribable natural beauty in one of the world’s remaining pristine regions. The lodge is situated about one half mile from the mouth of Lake Illiamna, on 12 acres of Kvichak River waterfront. Our lodge was the first built and in operation on the Kvichak River, giving us one of the best locations fro convenience to the community as well as easy access to the best fishing on the river.
The Kvichak Lodge can accomodate up to 12 people in private and semi-private rooms, giving us the opportunity to treat guests individually and offer a homey and comfortable atmosphere for you to relax, unwind, and have the fishing experience of your life. The staff at the Kvichak Lodge work round the clock to ensure all of your needs are taken care of, and every detail is attended to including gourmet cuisine, satellite TV, satellite internet access, satellite phone service, housekeeping, and laundry service. When you come to stay with us at the Kvichak Lodge you arrive as a guest, and leave as a friend.
The living room, bar, dining room, sunroom, deck, and all bedrooms upstairs overlook the breathtaking beauty of the Kvichak River. When you come to the Kvichak Lodge you will fly from Anchorage on a charter flight to the friendly alaskan villiage of Iguigig. Once there you will be met at the airstrip by our experienced staff to assist you with your luggage, and then taken down to the boat landing where a five minute trip accross the Kvichak River in our 22 foot canopied jet boat is the beginning of the fishing trip of your dreams.

The Alaskan Experience…..
In addition to offering world class fishing, the Kvichak Lodge is proud to offer other unique Alaskan experiences. katmai Notional Park is located approximately 50 miles from our lodge, and fly out bear viewing trips at the world famous Brook’s Falls is a favorite activity for our guests. For the individual who is interested in day trips, our guides are happy to do float trips down one of the tributaries or adjoining streams so that you can enjoy both float fishing adventure as well as bear viewing.
Our guides are the best in the business. We are proud to state that we have almost 55 years of combined experience with our guides to ensure that your experience with us is unique. We work to make sure that each of our guests’ individual fishing needs are paired with the person who has the most expertise in that specific field, whether it be fly fishing for rainbows, trolling for silvers, or casting off a secluded island for a monster King that you would like to see hanging on your office wall. Our partnerships with local businesses for taxidermy services, smoking/curing of catch, or shipping your fish home fresh are unparalleled in the business.
