If Alaska has been on your bucket list, this is the trip for you. We will be targeting Arctic Char and Dolly Varden but especially trophy Rainbows – fish of a lifetime.  We are returning to Bear Trail Lodge (our absolute favorite) that is within Alaska's only designated "Trophy Rainbow Trout" area. Plus, the first-class accommodations of Bear Trail Lodge sits right on the Naknek River that has been named the #1 Rainbow Trout river in Alaska by Fish Alaska magazine. Want proof?  In the Fall of 2017 Bear Trail Lodge anglers caught 45 Rainbows over 30 inches……63 for all of 2017.

If you've never been to Alaska, then this is the trip that was worth 'wading' for. If you are a seasoned Alaskan angler, you already know about the outstanding reputation of Bear Trail Lodge. Your experience will begin as you depart Anchorage on Friday, October 5 in the late afternoon to arrive at the lodge via flight arrangements through King Salmon, which are included in the cost of the trip ($575 value). You will be able to fish every day until mid to late afternoon Wednesday, October 10 when you'll prepare for an evening return trip to Anchorage.
