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.

Conservation and respect for the fishery is a very important principal we teach to guests at Reel Action Alaska Lodge. We are strictly catch and release for all the following fish species; king salmon, rainbow trout, char (dolly varden), and grayling. Please remember these are all wild fish and every fish you release makes a difference to the overall health of the fishery. Proper fish handling techniques when shooting pictures and landing fish are strictly enforced! If you are interested in keeping a few salmon to take home we only keep the males of chums, sockeye, or silvers. They are filleted, vacuum packed, and frozen and we provide a 25lb wax fish box for your trip home.

Our summer Alaska season at Reel Action Alaska Lodge on the Kanektok River begins in mid June and runs until the end of August. Please scroll down to learn more about our Alaska Lodge on the Kanektok River. We hope to see you in Alaska!
