The 235 mile flight to the Kulik Lodge airstrip will take you across Cook Inlet and past two volcanoes; Mt. Iliamna and Mt. Augustine. While at Kulik Lodge, you will be outfitted with waders and wading boots if needed, then it's off to the float plane for the twenty minute flight to Grosvenor.
Upon arrival at Grosvenor, you'll be shown to your cabin and issued an Alaska fishing license. Then, settle in and prepare for an afternoon of angling awaiting you just steps away!
During your stay at Grosvenor, you will have jet boat access to several of Alaska's finest freshwater streams. There will have be opportunity to fish for Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Lake Trout, and Northern Pike. Sockeye and Silver Salmon are each available during a limited time slot; the last three weeks of July for Sockeye, and the first three weeks of September for Silvers. Including fly outs during your stay can put you onto additional salmon and trout throughout the season.
Katmai National Park is one of the last trophy sport fisheries in the world with a 100% native stock. The fish grow and mature slowly due to the short summer season and cold water temperatures, so it is imperative that we do our best to protect this valuable resource. All our hooks are barbless and only single hooks are allowed (no trebles). In addition to releasing unharmed all rainbows, required by law, we also release all freshwater species. Guests may take home a limited catch of salmon depending upon the availability of the fish and the freezer space at the lodge. Upon arrival at the lodge, I will show all guests proper fish handling techniques to ensure the vitality of these wonderful creatures.
While at Grosvenor, wildlife viewing opportunities abound so I strongly recommend you bring your camera or video equipment, binoculars, plenty of film (or memory cards) and batteries. Each season we see a variety of animals such as Moose, Alaskan Brown Bear, Bald Eagles, Wolves, Lynx, and Wolverine, sometimes without even leaving the lodge!
