OUR DAILY ROUTINE IS CATCHING BIG FISH!

Start your morning with wake-up beverage service in your room about 6:00 a.m. Stroll in to the main lodge for breakfast. Meals are served family style, all you can eat. The breakfast menu changes up each day and consists of eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, potatoes, cold cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, baked goods and some clients’ favorite – bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon.

While guests are gearing up for the day, the kitchen crew packs coolers for lunches which include deli-style sandwiches, chips, cookies and fruit. We always include a thermos of coffee, thermos of soup, water bottles and soda. Hot shore lunches are also an option, with fresh caught fish prepared stream-side. With your waders on, rain coat, sunglasses, camera and lucky fishing hat, you are ready to depart for the day’s adventure. Your guide will be waiting to take you either by jet boat for a day on the Kvichak River, or by float plane for a day of fly out fishing to nearby rivers, depending on where the fish are throughout the season. Your guides will give you options and recommendations, then we spend the day having fun and doing our best to make your arms sore from catching fish.

About 6:00 p.m. we get you back safe and sound to the lodge in time to pull your waders off, take a hot shower, and then gather in the main lodge for what we affectionately call “Liars Hour” where appetizers are served and stories are told. Depending on the menu, dinner is plated of served family style at 7:30.

Over the course of the week you can expect the following: grilled ribeye, new york, or t-bone steaks, Alaskan crab, pork tenderloin, baby-back ribs, barbecued chicken, halibut, and everyone’s favorite – fresh caught wild Alaskan salmon. Alongside entrees we serve various side dishes and fresh baked bread, followed by homemade desserts. We are happy to accommodate special dietary needs, please just let us know in advance.

After dinner, some guests like to hit the beach in front of the lodge which is one ofthe best holes on the river in the evening. It’s always a great way to end the day, watching the sun go down with a rod in hand and a few fish being landed. If you would rather relax indoors before retiring to bed, there is a flat-screen TV with a library of DVD’s to view, a fully stocked fly-tying table, and a shelf of books to read. We also have internet service for you to check e-mails if business won’t let you rest. There is a phone in the main lodge and we recommend you bring a calling card with you for calls home or to the office.

Iliamna, Alaska! The Last Frontier

Iliamna Lake or Lake Iliamna is a lake in southwest Alaska, at the north end of the Alaska Peninsula, between Kvichak Bay and Cook Inlet 240 miles southeast of Anchorage, Alaska.

It is the largest lake in Alaska, eighth largest lake in the United States of America, and one of the largest in North America, covering about 2,600 km² (1,000 sq. miles). The lake is 77 miles (124 km) long and up to 22 miles (35 km) wide, with a maximum depth of 988 feet (301 m). Through the Kvichak River, its waters drain into Bristol Bay.

Iliamna Lake is noted for its sport fishing. The three primary targets of anglers in the lake are trout, salmon, and grayling. June through September is prime time for catching fat rainbow trout, some of which exceed 30 inches long. The Kvichak River Policy (the drainage of Lake Iliamna) is catch and release on trout (and all other native fish), but not on salmon. Sockeye (Red) and Silver (Coho). Salmon are consistently found in the lake and are open to harvest under Alaska Department of Fish and Game Regulations. Lake Iliamna also has one of few populations of freshwater seals in the world.
