Alaska’s Gold Creek Lodge is a world-class eco-adventure and fishing lodge situated on the banks of the world-famous Naknek River. Just outside of King Salmon, Alaska, the lodge operates seasonally from May 1 to October 1. The lodge is also the entrance to Katmai National Park and is located on the southwestern peninsula approximately 280 miles from Anchorage, within the Bristol Bay watershed. King Salmon is accessible by air only, ensuring a truly untamed remote wilderness experience.
The Naknek River and the surrounding area hosts prolific runs of five species of salmon and is a designated trophy rainbow trout area. Rainbows on this river frequently get to 30” long and weigh upwards of 10 pounds. The Naknek River is a tidal river that brings in a fresh crop of salmon with each new tide, ensuring excellent fishing every day of the salmon run. According to Alaska Magazine, the Naknek River is the best rainbow trout fishing in Alaska. The strong salmon runs also bring with them incredible wildlife. Fishermen, wildlife viewers, photographers, and eco-adventures all have endless custom adventures based on this stunning first-class lodge.
