Rapids Camp Lodge
Open from Jun 18 - Sep 15
Easy to get to, hard to leave. Rapids Camp Lodge is just an 80-minute flight from Anchorage, yet it's a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.
Unparalleled fly fishing in the heart of the famed Bristol Bay watershed -- home to enormous Rainbow Trout, five species of Salmon, Char, Pike, and Grayling.
Catering to individuals and small groups with five-star rustic luxury, staffed with seasoned guides, professional pilots, gourmet chefs (I mean food that rivals ANY lodge I have ever visited )and multiple support personnel serve a maximum of 18 guests a week.
They provide everything you need for the fly fishing trip of a lifetime -- the finest rods, reels, tackle and waders -- de Havilland Beaver and Otter float planes, modern jetboats, and some of the very best guides in Alaska!
And if you've looking for more, this lodge also offer glaciers, volcanoes, wildlife viewing, clam digging, Halibut fishing , eco-tourism, you name it. If it's Alaska, they do it!
Bottom line is that this lodge is as good as it gets with superb fishing, great planes, outstanding guides and staff, and accommodations and food that will surpass your expectations!
Another great feature of this lodge is that it is located on the outskirts of King Salmon and does not require an overnight in Anchorage. Pricing INCLUDES flights into the lodge and back from Anchorage
Highlight of a Few of Their Fishing Locations:
Naknek River Logically their home river deserves special attention. Being part of the greater Naknek Lake system, their home river drains millions of gallons of fresh water out into the Bering Sea and is one of the largest migratory routes on the planet for Pacific Salmon and home to trophy Rainbow Trout. They know exactly when to fish the river and when not to; being right there they are deeply in-tune with the rhythms of the Nak. Every year RCL produces many of the largest Rainbow Trout in Alaska fishing the Naknek River.
Kvichak River: With two boats located in the heart of the braids, RCL fishes the Kvichak when it is at its best. Whether side drifting, swinging leeches or sneaking around back channels, fishing the Kvichak River fits into their philosophy of fishing each system at its peak location and time.
Nushagak River : The grand daddy of all Alaska King Salmon Rivers. The lodge keeps three boats at the Nushagak river ready and waiting. Your experienced guide will lead you right to the hotspots. Getting there to fish the Nushagak River is simple, a spectacular quick jump in the Otter.
The Alaska Peninsula Specialists: Variety and more variety make for a great fishing trip. Rapids Camp Lodge is proud to be the Alaska Peninsula Specialists. Few areas in Alaska offer this kind of pristine Salmon choked wilderness. With their experienced Alaskan pilots and four at-the-ready planes, plan to be spoiled - miles of rivers left virtually alone.
Ugashik Lakes and Becharof Lake: These lake systems drain thousands of square miles and produce some of the largest Salmon runs in Alaska and in the ributaries of both these lake systems they find Huge Char
Smokey: Remote and rarely fished, the Smokey River runs into one of the most productive Salmon rivers in Bristol Bay Alaska. As only one of two lodges with a permit to fish Smokey, you will find solitude and incredible salmon fishing!
With over 50 different remote streams accessible during your trip, Rapids Camp Lodge offers a special customized Alaska experience.
