Six (6) days of fishing and Seven (7) nights accommodations, including food, loaner rods and reels, and flies for one (1) person to Reel Action Alaska Lodge located on the Kanektok River in southwestern Alaska.
All equipment, tackle, flies, food, accommodations, and digital pictures of your trip are included. Fly fish for beautiful leopard rainbow trout, dolly varden, grayling, and all 5 species of Pacific salmon.
Reel Action Alaska operates as a full service tent lodge that has been designed to provide our guests with all the comforts needed for living in the bush. The location of our lodge (1 mile from tide water) was carefully chosen to provide our guests a front row seat to the freshest chrome bright fly fishing action in Alaska. The best holding water to fly fish for fresh run kings, silvers, chums, and pinks is right in front of our lodge! What makes our experience especially unique is that while having the best access to chrome bright salmon action, we also have a tremendous rainbow trout fishery in both the lower and upper river.
After a long full day of fly fishing you will be staying in customized wall tent cabins equipped with all the amenities to be comfortable in the Alaskan bush. These are spacious 10 x 12ft and 12 x 12ft heated wall tent cabins with wooden floors and carpeting. The wall tents are super strong, waterproof and can withstand the weather conditions in Alaska. For your comfort we sleep single occupancy, one client per tent cabin and have larger tent cabins for couples to share. The tent cabins are furnished with a padded cot with quilt and high quality sleeping bag, soft pillows, dresser, lantern, mosquito coil, clean linens for showering, clothes hangers, windows with screening, and plenty of storage room for your luggage and gear. Our lodge is equipped with jet boats and each guide has their own boat to take you to the hottest fishing action on the river. The Kanektok is easily wadeable so we generally use the boats to get to a prime fishing location, then jump out and start fishing from the bank. Our guide to client ratio is two clients per one guide, assuring you the highest level of service on your trip.
The Kanektok is an excellent river for beginners to advanced anglers alike and a great place to take your family. Our guides are knowledgeable and proficient in teaching both traditional fly fishing and spey casting, and are patient and personable instructors. Guests get to experience fly fishing for all five species of salmon in their prime close to the ocean - very silver and chrome bright! Guests also experience excellent fly fishing for rainbow trout, dolly varden, and grayling upstream as we cover over 40 miles of the river including access to the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge Wilderness Area. This area begins above river mile 18 and extends another 72 miles up river to Pegati and Kagati Lakes. Accessible only by special permit, each guest at the lodge gets one full day fishing within the Wilderness Area. Home to at least 283 species of wildlife, there are 33 kinds of fish, 201 assorted birds, 31 land mammals and 17 marine mammals, not to mention 1 amphibian. As for plants, there are over 500 different kinds that can be found in a wide variety of habitats from rolling tundra to rich wetlands. We are extremely fortunate to have been awarded access into this amazing stretch of river and look forward to sharing it with you!
