World-Class Alaska Fishing Lodge & Adventure


Alaska Fly Fishing in Bristol Bay is the best on the planet…

And we know it!

Alaska Rainbow Lodge offers Alaska salmon fishing for all five native species; King salmon, Silver salmon (Coho), Sockeye salmon, Chum salmon and Pink salmon (Humpback). With our vast knowledge and superb location, you will have access to almost every salmon fishing location in Southwestern Alaska. Get ready to live your dream of Alaska Fly Fishing!


Experience the Finest in Alaska Fly Fishing


We fish by wading, drifting, casting, or plugging. You can fly fish or use conventional gear; that’s up to you. There are streams that are protected as fly fishing only areas, and there are rivers that allow either fly fishing or the use of spinning tackle. Alaska Rainbow Lodge guides practice fly fishing only for Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, & Grayling, and all are catch and release.

Depending on the river, the season, and the weather – we fish in one of three ways after a short 15-25 minute flight in one of our 3 Beaver float-planes.

We hike many of the smaller streams, trying different runs and holes throughout the day. We will find fantastic fishing with short, easy walks or with longer, adventurous hikes for those looking to explore rugged Alaskan beauty.  These are the true wilderness streams where it’s unusual to see another fisherman. We take small rafts on some of the mid-size rivers, which allows floating long sections of river. A scenic float trip with a pick-up 3-5 miles downstream will allow you to cover lots of water while still getting out to wade the best spots. You will experience one of the best fly-fishing trips in Alaska.

On 14 different rivers, we have jet boats stored for quick, easy access. Whether fishing out of the boat or using it for transportation from hole to hole before wade fishing, these rivers are usually good bets to find Rainbow Trout of unbelievable size.

Much of our Alaska salmon fishing, particularly the King salmon, is done by boat – with lures or plugs. You may fly fish for Kings on the Alagnak River where you can sight fish with a fly rod. All other salmon fishing – Silver, Chum, Pink, & Sockeye are accessed by a combination of aircraft, jet boat, and wade or bank fishing.


As our guest you’ll have access to more than 30 different rivers and streams, enjoying some of the world’s best Alaska fishing for Trophy Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Silver Salmon, King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Grayling and more across 3,000 square miles of the Iliamna-Katmai watershed into Bristol Bay.


Unique Alaska Fishing Trips is our business. Making your Alaska Fly Fishing experience unforgettable is our goal and promise.


Alaska Rainbow Lodge is a river-based fishing lodge PLUS we fly out daily with multiple aircraft. You are assured of finding rivers with the highest concentration of fish. You have the greatest river in Alaska as a back up should the weather turn bad, since we are located right on the bank of the Kvichak. There’s no such thing as a bad day of fly fishing at Alaska Rainbow Lodge. Combined with the experience and dedication of our certified fishing guides and your hosts, Chip and Amanda Ferguson, there’s no better base of operations to have spectacular and unforgettable Alaska fishing trips.

Many lodges claim they are fly-out lodges. With some you’ll only fly out two days out of seven, or the lodge only has enough airplanes for half the guests. Other lodges in southwest Alaska operate on a program they call “Daily Fly-out Fishing.” What this means is that every day, ALL the guests pack up into an airplane and fly to a different destination to spend the day fishing. But if the weather is un-flyable, you’re stuck without a place to fish. Some lodges are river-based lodges (no fly-out fishing). They state that they never have to depend on the weather to go fishing. They don’t mention that if their river is flooded, or the fish run has moved on, you’re out of luck. But there’s no need to risk your hard-earned vacation time.

You’ll never have those concerns with Alaska Rainbow Lodge. We’re proud to offer an unsurpassed, premium Alaska fishing trip experience, helping our guests maximize their fishing fun and success each and every day!






Alaska Rainbow Lodge is a 4,600 sq. ft. cedar frame lodge featuring a large living room, kitchen, lounge and dining room, as well as 5 double-occupancy bedrooms with private bath.

After a long day of successful fishing our guests enjoy private bedrooms in one of our 3 duplex cabins. Each plush, carpeted, soundproofed bedroom has a large private bath. Each has a queen and a twin size extra-long bed. Our cozy Alaska fishing lodge has thermostatically controlled forced-air, heat and 24-hour electricity.

The Home Waters


Alaska fishing is excellent on our home river, and we are very close to ALL the premier “fly-out” rivers of the Iliamna-Katmai region of Bristol Bay. We fly and float where the fish are. All the finest Rainbow Trout streams in Alaska are within twenty-five minutes flying time from The Alaska Rainbow Lodge. We invite you to visit our world-class sport fishing lodge, where we take each guest’s Alaska fly fishing vacation very personally.


Located in beautiful Bristol Bay Alaska, between the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge and Katmai National Park and Preserve


The Kvichak remains one of Alaska’s most productive and popular rivers and offers unsurpassed trophy-size Alaska Rainbow Trout fishing. Our home river also features Arctic Grayling, Northern Pike and Salmon fishing. In fact, the world’s largest Rainbow Trout, some up to 18 pounds, come from this awesome resource. The Kvichak and surround area truly offer the best fishing in Alaska.

The Kvichak’s Sockeye Salmon run numbers into the millions. The Sockeyes annual migration takes them right by the lodge, providing great angling opportunities and an impressive display of nature’s bounty.

On occasion, weather conditions prohibit safe flying. When that happens, excellent Alaska fishing for trophy rainbow trout and hard-fighting salmon can be easily accessed by boat, just minutes from our dock.
