Strategically located on a 120-acre inholding within the heart of Katmai National Park’s finest trout waters, Royal Wolf Lodge is one of Alaska’s finest fly-out fly fishing operations. In terms of location, Royal Wolf is hard to beat. Short flying times to the region’s premier watersheds including the Moraine, Funnel, Big Ku, Battle, American and the Kvichak are guaranteed, as is quality home water in the event of poor flying conditions. Widely recognized for their strategic fly fishing program, Royal Wolf Lodge is also a “repeat” location for some of Alaska’s most experienced and productive guides including Dave Goodhart and Scott O'Donnell. Idyllically set overlooking a private lake, Royal Wolf features charming, rustic cabins with baths. Fine meals are served in the comfort of the main lodge. For the serious rainbow fly fishing enthusiast, Royal Wolf Lodge is without question one of the state’s premier destinations. Spaces are limited so early bookings are encouraged.
Royal Wolf Lodge is located in the center of Katmai National Park on 120 acres of privately owned wilderness. The lodge is approximately two hours from Anchorage, Alaska by air.
Royal Wolf Lodge fly fishes all of the premier waters of the greater Iliamna/Katmai region of Bristol Bay. These waters include Moraine Creek, Battle Creek, Big Ku, Little Ku, Kulik River, Brooks River, and the American River as well several smaller walk and wade systems. While several species of Pacific salmon, Arctic char, Dolly Varden, and grayling abound in these waters, Royal Wolf is first and foremost dedicated to providing their clientele with unparalleled trophy rainbow fly fishing. Royal Wolf does not target salmon so if silver or king fishing is important to you, this is not the place. Royal Wolf has some of the most experienced guides in the state some of which have spent more than 25 years guiding the region’s waters. Short daily fly-outs in well-maintained float planes take anglers to the stream where they will fly fish the water by raft, jet boat or foot. A fair degree of fitness is required at some of the best fishing venues due to a significant amount of walking through fairly rugged terrain, although Royal Wolf is happy to host anglers that prefer a more relaxed pace.

"We had a fantastic time at the Royal Wolf Lodge. Thank you for suggesting such a great place. Chris and Linda are terrific and the whole guide staff was outstanding. Both Karolyn and I caught our biggest wild rainbows ever! All around we couldn't have asked for a better experience." D.G., CA
