Rainbow King is the #1 premier guide, outfitter, and lodge in Alaska. There is nothing that compares in regards to the proprietary fishing locations, the lodging, the guides and staff, the equipment, and overall experience of Rainbow King. The food is prepared by top notch chefs and served by staff that are attentive to every little detail. Gus and the staff are the best guides in the world, regardless of your skill level. Bottomline, it’s the best fishing in all of AK, and maybe the world. Book your unforgettable trip with these guys…you‘ll be glad you did.” – Charles H.

“I have been coming to Rainbow King Lodge for 27 years now and plan to go back again next year with two friends. I have experienced different owners and different guides over that period. Today, RKL is the best it has ever been. If you want the ultimate in fly fishing adventure they can give it to you. I have come during the first week of the season all the way to the last week of the season. Each is unique and you can find your special week based on what you want to experience. All you have to do it ask them. All the best.”  Bob Buckman

“This is Alaska fishing the way it should be experienced by everyone who has dreamt of going! Remote waters, fly in and out on Beaver DeHavilland’s, pristine conditions, knowledgeable guides, helpful staff, and lodging that relaxes and reenergizes you after a long day of catching! Great for experienced anglers and novices alike.” – Kirk S., August 2016

“This is my second year fishing with RKL and this year was exceptionally good weather and the fishing was insanely good. If 26” 7lb rainbow trout does not get you pumped read no further. Gus and Tony lead a guide crew that is professional, know where the fish are, and helpful in every way to make your experience the best. This year a group of us went halibut and rock fish fishing in Homer Bay and we had our limits by 11:30 am, including a 70 pounder!
I cannot recommend RKL any higher and have paid my fee already for next year. If you want the best fishing, food and people you owe yourself this experience!

“We loved everything about our trip. First of all, the fishing was great. We literally caught hundreds of rainbow trout among us. And I loved walking the rivers we fished, particularly East West. That was just an amazing experience. Related to the fishing, obviously, we found the guides all very knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and helpful. The food was very good as well. While dinners and breakfasts were great, I think our favorite meal was lunch cooked over a fire or propane stove out on the rivers we fished. Nothing could have tasted better than hot food (and cookies) after a morning fishing in the river in the rain. Wow! We also slept very well in our cabins, which were spacious and comfortable. And as a father, I felt safe and comfortable with all of the pilots and the float planes. That, for me, was a key part of the trip, as safety has to be, and was clearly, your highest priority. Bottom line: We had a wonderful father-son bonding experience and had the time of our life.”  – Mark Stilwell Sr., August 2016

“My 11 year old son and I recently spent a week at Rainbow King—July 17 to 23rd 2016. We were greeted at the Iliamna airport by the guides and taken to the lodge which is only a few miles away. From the minute we arrived, we were welcomed by the staff, and immediately felt their warm hospitality. The other guests must have felt it as well, and everyone just sort of naturally mixed. We had a wonderful dinner, and then a quick briefing on the week ahead by Gus. Our room was great, and the beds are very comfortable! We were awakened by a knock on the door the next morning and in came the hot coffee and hot cocoa for my son—-not too bad! We went to the dining room for breakfast, back to our room to get ready, and off we went. It’s that simple. Each day was a new adventure followed by relaxing in the “rec room” , a great meal,lots of laughs, and a great nights sleep. The fishing was incredible, and the guides were AWESOME. They were all extremely personable, polite, attentive and knowledgable. Not only can they fish and instruct, but they can cook the best shore side lunches I could have imagined. The pilots and the aircraft were also AWESOME! We were in Heaven. Gus and his crew are the most hospitable, and professional bunch of people I’ve ever met—hands down. The owners and staff of Rainbow King have got it figured out! John Jr. did not want to leave….. If your are looking for a first class Alaska fishing experience, look no further. The fishing was incredible (sockeye, rainbows, grayling), but it was the people who made it a truly special experience. Thank you Gus and your crew for taking such good care of us and making our trip of a lifetime so perfect!” – John D Fentress

“More than just a fishing trip, a real life experience! I had a full week of non stop blast!
I am not a fisherman at heart and I didn’t need to be to enjoy one of the best weeks of my life. The area is incredible and what these guys offer is complete service to make you discover the area and fish to your heart’s content. If you ever get the opportunity get in touch with the guys over there and you will not regret your time. It’s Alaska in a 5 star with great beds, incredible service, fun area and fishing!!!” – Maxime Suisse

“I have been fortunate to have fished all over Canada, the Amazon, Costa Rica and nothing really compares with the diversity and the quality of Rainbow King. This year will mark my 9th year in a row at Rainbow King and I’ve never ever had one day that disappointed me. The guide service is impeccable, the fishing great and Gus and Justin make it an incredible experience.” – Rand Ballard

“Upon arriving at the lodge the beautiful landscape almost takes your breath away. Gus and his staff treat you like family and cater to your every need. I have been a fly fisherman all my adult life. I have never experienced anything that even comes close to the massive rainbows we landed each day. 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
