Small Alaska Fly Fishing Lodge for Trophy Trout

Igiugig Lodge is located at the mouth of the Kvichak River. The Kvichak River is a big river draining Lake Iliamna, the largest lake in Alaska. The Iliamna Lake drainage, which includes the Kvichak River, is designated by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game as a Trophy Rainbow Trout area and careful regulation has kept the fishing spectacular. Probably one of the nicest surprises for anglers visiting the Kvichak River is it's size and wade ability. Though much of the water on the Kvichak is big by any standard, there are miles and miles of intimate braids containing the famous monster Alaskan Rainbow Trout. Trophy Rainbow Trout are an easy cast away, ready to test anglers of any skill level. Imagine yourself standing knee deep in a crystal clear river. In front of you is a school of bright red, spawning Sockeye Salmon. You cast your fly line out into the swirling current, and just as the line passes in front of you it pulls tight. A 30 inch slab of powerful Alaskan Rainbow Trout comes spiraling up out of the water in a tremendous leap, then dashes off downstream.

The fishing on the Kvichak may be so good you won't want to leave, but what’s an Alaskan fishing experience without a float plane fly out? At Igiugig Lodge we'll fly you to other rivers and lakes in the area. Fly outs give us the flexibility to go where the fishing is exceptionally good at any given time. Our location allows us to quickly reach the best fly fishing streams in Alaska. From our lodge we can reach streams offering all five species of Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Northern Pike, Grayling, and Arctic Char.

Arctic Grayling



Arctic Grayling are God’s gift to light tackle fanatics. They are thick in many of Alaska's streams and will attack a fly all season long even in the worst of weather. Most grayling average 10 to 14 inches with trophies measuring 21 inches. Their good reputation comes from their susceptibility to dry flies and the gracefulness in which they take them.

Arctic Char


Char are commonly associated with the Dolly Varden since they are biologically the same. They average 3 to 5 pounds with the largest of the fish tipping the scales at 15 pounds. Available season long, they are a very hard fighter for its size and one of the most beautiful fish that we have in the State.

Chinook (King) Salmon

 


The largest of the Pacific Salmon, Kings average 20 to 30 pounds with the largest weighing in at 60 pounds. They enter our rivers in early June with fishing peaking from mid June to the middle of July. We fish the Nushagak River which holds the largest returning run of Kings in Alaska. We lease several different lands on the “Nush” providing our guests with the BEST King Salmon fly fishing available.

Sockeye (Red) Salmon

 


The Sockeye salmon enter the Iliamna drainage by the millions in late June and early July. For the first few weeks that they are in fresh water they are considered to be the hardest fighting salmon pound for pound. Sockeye Salmon average 6 to 10 pounds with a 15 pound maximum.

Chum (Dog) Salmon

 


Chums average 8 to 12 pounds and have a keen appetite for streamer flies and spinners. They don’t have as good as a reputation as the other salmon species when it comes to the dinner table, but for on the fly line there is much respect for their fighting endurance. Chum Salmon top the scales at 20 pounds and arrive in our rivers in July and early August.

Pink (Humpy) Salmon

 


The smallest of the Pacific Salmon, averaging 3 to 5 pounds. They arrive in mid-July and August. What pink salmon lack in size they make up for in aggressiveness and non-stop action. They are excellent sport on smaller rods.

Silver (Coho) Salmon

 


Fishing for Silvers is at its best in August and September. Most silver Salmon weigh between 8 and 15 pounds and are very aggressive towards flies and spinners.

Northern Pike

 


Northern Pike are the freshwater alligators of Alaska. Their strike is vicious, they are usually big and they will hit anything the moves! Pike are usually caught in the 25 to 40 inch class range. Pike can be found as close as your cabin door and are available all season.

Rainbow Trout

 


For the fly fisherman, Alaska is synonymous with giant Rainbow Trout. The Rainbows in this area are all wild...no hatcheries here.  Rainbows are available all season long, averaging 18 to 27 inches, and the prized 30 inch fish is not uncommon.
