Fishing with Angler’s Alibi for a week is a lot more than just great Alaska fishing! We have become more like a family and our rebook/return rate is at one of the highest levels in the region and the industry: an 80 – 90% return rate, with clients that have been coming back for up to 25 years! We have a staff that has very limited turnover as well. This atmosphere with amazing fishing and wildlife experience right outside our doors has many people making this an annual trip! Our location is remote, so the only way here is by float plane and this alone is one of the many reasons that keeps people coming back for more. With access only by float plane, there is never a feeling of "combat" fishing on our home waters. This pristine area of Bristol Bay is cherished by all and we try and maintain this as being stewards of the river and surrounding areas.
Alagnak River Fishing Camp: Our Main Camp with main lodge
The typical day at our fishing camp starts out with our unique coffee service brought right to your bedside for a 6am wake up call. Don't worry if that is too early for you, we can always come get you later in the morning, as we realize this is your week, and we can accommodate your time on/off the river. The morning features breakfasts made to order and includes tasty options such as fresh breakfast burritos, eggs over easy with hash browns, a stack of pancakes, or a hot bowl of oatmeal. After breakfast, guests head down to the dock to start their day of fishing. When weather allows it, lunches are eaten on the river. If it's a rainy/windy day, we always have hot lunches back at the main lodge. The day's fishing comes to an end around 4:30, which usually leads to a cocktail hour spent on our screened porch, or inside by the fireplace and bar in our fishing camp main lodge. Hot appetizers are served fresh (and change daily), followed up by a full course meal complete with salad, homemade bread, and always a scrumptious dessert. Many guests enjoy an evening of cards, board games, or just some great conversation before heading to bed for a great night's sleep enjoying the sounds of nature. It is not uncommon to hear sandhill cranes, salmon jumping in the river, and even an occasional wolf's howl to keep it interesting and make you appreciate that you are not in suburbia anymore!
