Robb Report Travel Recognition

“Rainbow King Lodge has long been renowned for the immensity of the local fish – which might explain why 85% of guests return to the resort.”

salmon steelhead travel recognition

“It’s kind of like your own personal Alaska, only with fringe benefits of 30-inch rainbows and salmon runs so strong that they can choke off a stream.”

This story, at its heart, is really about big, wild Alaskan rainbows, a remarkable fish that is fast, strong, ravenous and beautiful.

“When friends ask about my experience, the answer was always the same, ‘It was the best 6 days of fishing I have ever had. I have found the Holy Grail of fly fishing.'”
– James Wright



Rainbow King Lodge operates seasonally from June to September. Sea-bright king salmons lead the charge in June, providing some of the most challenging angling on the face of the planet, with sockeye salmon following their lead in late June and early July. Chum salmon and pinks are next, with silver salmon providing the grand finale in August and September. The grand prize of Alaska fishing, rainbow trout are available all season with the huge trophy rainbows moving up out of Lake Iliamna in Mid-August and September. Arctic grayling and Arctic char are both hard fighters that are in the rivers and creeks all season.

Rainbow King Lodge combines the wilds of Alaska with the luxuries of the modern escape.



Unlike many other fishing lodges in Alaska, where guests participate in combat fishing with hundreds of others, you’re more likely to see moose, brown bear, foxes, and other wildlife than fisherman outside of your own party and the guides. The fishing grounds for guests of Rainbow King Lodge include over 30 streams and rivers in the Iliamna/Katmai watershed that have been secured for exclusive access via private licenses. You’ll depart from the lodge in the morning on an aircraft equipped with floats to your fishing destination of the day. There will be one guide for every two anglers, and you’ll enjoy a hot lunch prepared by your guide in the fresh air on the shore of the river or stream where you’re fishing. Here is what you can expect from our Alaska fishing lodge when you’re not out fishing…
