“Best of Alaska” at Katmai Trophy Lodge.

​JULY 17-24TH, 2021

Host: Jerry Darkes


Five species of salmon possible with rainbow trout, dolly varden, grayling and pike.


We will stay at Katmai Trophy Lodge on the banks of the famous Naknek River outside King Salmon, AK.  The Naknek hosts one of the largest sockeye salmon runs in AK and is famous for having the hardest fighting rainbow trout anywhere, with many in the 25”-30” plus range.  

Sockeye will still be in prime condition for anyone wanting to take fish home.  Giant rainbows will be busting sockeye smolts in the Naknek River.  King salmon can be taken on swung flies.  You can strip streamers for hard-fighting chum salmon.  Side trips to smaller streams will provide mousing and skating, as well as regular dry fly action for rainbows, char, and grayling.  Pike will be available in sloughs off the main river.  Bears will be found on all waters in the area. If you want to see everything Alaska offers the fly angler, this is the trip for you.
Cost of this trip is $4295.00 pp all-inclusive from King Salmon.  Included in the package is airport pick up, 7 nights lodging, 6 days guided fishing, and all meals.  A trip to the world-famous Brooks Falls for fishing and bear viewing is also included.  Additional side-trips are optional and priced separately.  We have 6 spaces reserved for the week.
Greatlakesflyfishing.com will also include pre-tip meetings and both casting and fly-tying instruction at no additional cost for anyone interested as part of the package.  For more info or to sign up, please contact Jerry Darkes directly, 440-781-3906 or jerrydarkes@gmail.com.
