June 2018 - ALASKA

Fly-Fishing in Alaska is more than just a sport or passion - it’s a way of life.  

Once you have been bitten by the bug, you’re “hooked”.  So beware – fish the Alagnak River at your own peril, because once you’ve been there, once will never be enough. 

Alaska is one of the most dramatic dream destinations on the planet to target not only all five species of Pacific salmon, but also leopard rainbow trout, arctic grayling, arctic char, dolly varden, lake trout and even northern pike! 

The FFTC destination ATA Lodge is the perfect wilderness fishing retreat. Boasting a world-famous run of all five species of pacific salmon, the Alagnak is also home to a host of resident fish as well, such as leopard rainbow trout, arctic char and grayling. This prestigious river is located within the Katmai National Park, with its headwaters in the surrounding mountains and flowing into Bristol Bay. It is also famously known as “The Branch River” for its seemingly endless braids, where 10 miles of river can easily contain 30 miles of fishable waters. With such exclusive river access you are sure not to be bothered by any crowds.


The Alagnak River flows through a wild land of captivating landscapes and abundant wild-life. Meandering down this braided river, you will discover bald eagles perched atop spruce trees in boreal forests. You will gaze at moose browsing above the river bank in the wet sedge tundra as well as encounter unprecedented numbers of Alaskan brown bears feasting upon the salmon returning to our river to spawn! This is why we are considered by many who have visited Alaska numerous times, as having the "whole package".
