Enchanted Lake Lodge sits on a stunning, privately owned 54-acre bluff parcel overlooking Nonvianuk Lake within Katmai National Park. The surrounding area provides anglers with some of the most prolific trophy rainbow trout fishing in the world. With short flights to the renowned fishing grounds of Katmai Park, including Big and Little Ku, Brooks, Moraine, Kulik, American, Battle and Funnel Creeks, anglers maximize fishing time and often reach the water before more distant lodges. Over its 53 years of catering to discerning anglers, Enchanted Lake Lodge has gained the reputation as the most deluxe and luxurious fly out lodge in the state. No detail is overlooked as guests are treated to fantastic accommodations, gourmet meals, two well-kept DeHavilland Beaver float planes, well-appointed jet boats and seasoned guides that intimately know their world-class fisheries. Catering to only 12 guests per week, Enchanted Lake Lodge provides what serious rainbow fishermen consider Alaska’s ultimate all-inclusive fly out experience.
Enchanted Lake Lodge is located approximately 50 miles northeast of King Salmon, Alaska in Katmai National Park.
Located in the heart of Bristol Bay’s Katmai National Park, Enchanted Lake Lodge is one of the region's premier fishing destinations. The lodge is strategically located just minutes from many of Alaska’s most productive fisheries. This minimizes flight times and maximizes fishing time on the world famous streams for which the state is known. While Enchanted Lake Lodge prides itself on being a “rainbow focused” destination, there are also all five species of Pacific salmon available as well as Arctic char, Dolly Varden and grayling. During a stay with Enchanted Lake Lodge, your fishing preferences (as well as that day's fishing conditions) are taken into account. River options include the Brooks, Kulik, Battle, Big and Little Ku, American, Kvichak, Moraine, Funnel and among others. Having one of the most experienced team of guides, a day with these experts will not disappoint even the most seasoned of anglers. With the use of planes, jet boats and rafts, you are sure to have access to best the region has to offer.
The greater Bristol Bay/Katmai region is home to pristine wilderness, majestic views, enormous rainbow trout, five species of Pacific salmon, Arctic char, Dolly Varden, grayling, pike and trout, as well as the second largest national park in the United States. Katmai National Park is 4.2 million acres of virtually untouched wilderness where you can find bears, moose, caribou and wolves. At world famous Brooks Falls, you're likely to see a bear grab a leaping salmon right out of the air. Here also, volcanoes and glaciers coexist. From the Valley of 10,000 Smokes to the deep turquoise of the ice age glaciers, you'll see scenery that rivals the wildlife.
