Grosvenor Lodge is a small remote lodge located in Katmai National Park on the narrows between Grosvenor and Colville Lakes. Originally built in the 50s, this intimate fishing operation takes a maximum of four to six anglers. For anglers interested in remote semi-do-it-yourself operation with simple meals and accommodations, few locations or operations compare to this Alaskan classic. From this base, several small tributaries of Colville Lake and Grosvenor Lake are accessed via jet boat and fished in a walk and wade fashion. Additionally, the lodge has one of only a few permits to access the Lower American via jet boat. Guests can also add daily fly-out trips upon request.
Grosvenor Lodges remote location is rarely visited by other anglers enabling their guests seemingly private access to the narrows as well as several key tributaries of their lakes. These tributaries experience huge annual sockeye salmon returns, making them exceptional systems for rainbow trout keen on bulking up for the long winters. The early season smolt migration offers great action on streamers, especially in the narrows in front of the lodge. Additionally, the lower ends of the feeder streams offer great early season fishing for rainbows as they intercept salmon fry migrating to the lakes. Once the adult sockeyes begin to spawn in August, the egg fishing kicks into high gear and last well into September. The lodge only has one guide. The guide will typically motor the group to the tributary of choice and then guests will leap-frog each other up the stream for the day. In the early season, guest can also elect to fish the narrows on their own while the others head out with the guide. Accordingly, this program is best suited to fairly independent anglers. Guests can also arrange fly-outs to some of the region's best rivers including Kulik, Moraine, Funnel and Brooks.
