As they say in real estate…location is everything. In Alaska, this holds true for fishing as well.
Angler’s Alibi is a remote Alaskan fishing lodge located on the Alagnak River. We are just outside the Katmai National Park boundary. Our camp is 28 miles North of King Salmon, Alaska, which is approximately 290 miles S/SW of Anchorage in the famous Bristol Bay area of Alaska.
Angler’s Alibi may be the best example of what an Alaskan fishing experience should be. Due to our location, we have great fishing right off our shoreline–even off the dock! It is possible to land all 5 species of Pacific salmon without ever leaving camp. We utilize 7 guide boats, 6 guides and take only 12 guests per week. This makes our fishing program very easy to customize according to guests’ wishes and expectations. We offer 9 hours of guided fishing every day, and if that is not enough, we will take guests out after dinner until our 9:45pm curfew. If this is too much time fishing and not enough time relaxing, no problem! We let the guests dictate how much time they want to fish.
Where You Can Fish:
Alagnak River Tidewater: This is Angler’s Alibi’s location. It gives you access to all the salmon fishing needed to make your trip a great one without traveling far from the lodge.
Alagnak River Braids: The world famous braids are an area of the Alagnak River where salmon spawn in the rich shallow gravel channels. Here, we fish for rainbow trout, arctic grayling, and char due to the high concentration of food for the local residents. This trip to the braids via one of our jet boats is well worth the short 40-minute boat ride and is quite common amongst our guests. Our returning guests often make sure to spend at least one day of their trip in the braids. This trip requires an additional fuel surcharge of $300 for the day and can accommodate up to 3 anglers.
Nushagak River Fishing: New for 2019, Anglers Alibi is offering early season king salmon fishing on this world famous river (annual runs of over 100k king salmon).
Fly-Out Fishing Days: The above options are accessed in under 40 minutes from Anglers Alibi, but we offer guests the option to take a short, 30-45 minute float plane ride to several additional areas.
