Alaska's Premier Outfitter since 1976

Katmai Guide Service

5 days and 4 nights fishing and sightseeing, including trip to Brooks Falls

Your trip will consist of, but not be limited to, daily fishing excursions by boat with a professional licensed guide on the Naknek River, Naknek Lake, and the streams and tributaries of the area.  Fantastic wildlife viewing, including the famous Brown Bears of Katmai National Park and Brooks Camp is a key part of any trip we organize. It is important to remember that none of our trips have a set schedule. We plan our days based on the weather, the fishing, and what we feel is best for you.  We will customize your trip to best suite your needs and desires!

Fly out fishing to remote streams or the Nushagak River can be included for an additional fee of $650 -$850 per hour of flying time, payable to the air charter company.  The average fly out trip requires one to two hours of flying.  The aircraft will carry, 5 fisherman, a guide and gear comfortably.  This translates into about $200 per person per day for a fly out.  It is not necessary to fly out from our facility to experience extraordinary fishing and wildlife viewing but it does add a special dimension to your experience.  If you choose to fly to Brooks Camp (rather than boating there) count on approximately 1 hour total of flight time (flight time not included in package).

All fishing trips include boat, professional guides and all tackle.  Great home cooked meals and accommodations in our remote River Lodge will prove to be as important to your adventure as the fantastic fishing.  Professional guiding judgement, companionship and dedication to the best possible experience are the essential elements of a fishing trip with Katmai Guide Service.  You have the guarantee of  100% effort on the part of my staff and me!  We accommodate no more than eight guests per week, which insures you the very best in personalized and professional attention!

Your fishing license ($55) and King Salmon Stamp ($30) can be purchased on arrival into King Salmon.  Any other personal items can be purchased at the local grocery store. 

We process, clean, professionally vacuum seal, freeze and box your catch for you at no additional cost. Almost all places in Alaska you visit have a processing fee.  We do not expedite or ship fish. We insist that you take it as checked baggage with you when you leave
