Kvichak Lodge

Somewhere over the rainbow...

Somewhere over the rainbow there’s a fish that wants to kick your ass, and you can find it near Kvichak Lodge. It’s in the heart of Alaska’s prime waters in the world famous Bristol Bay drainage where you can find trout and char exceeding 20 pounds, chinook salmon up 60 pounds, as well as sockeye, coho, chum and humpback salmon. If that’s not enough, throw in pike and grayling and you’ve got a whole menu of fish to catch. 


The lodge was built shortly after World War II, which means it’s been around longer than most of us, and even longer than Alaska has been a state. Why is that relevant? Because you don’t operate continuously for that long unless you know how to catch fish and take care of guests. 


Owner Mike McDowell has over 30 years experience on the Kvichak River and a roster of top fishing guides. Dining will also be top shelf and featuring locally caught seafood, prime cuts of beef, fresh vegetables and indulgent desserts made to your liking. Breakfast and lunches are made to accommodate your day’s fishing schedule.
