Counting Down the Days Until We Head to the Alaska Sportman’s Lodge!

As you travel down river the crystal-clear Kvichak River (kwee-JACK) about 4 miles from majestic Lake Iliamna, Alaska’s largest lake, you will find Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge nestled intimately upon the ridge overlooking this vast pristine wilderness of south western Alaska. This area is known throughout the world as the pinnacle of sport fishing for the prized rainbow Trout. The location also is in the heart of Alaska’s designated Trophy Rainbow Trout area. Here snow-fed streams flow crystal clear from the mountains through the tundra and to Bristol Bay. The nutrient rich environment and pristine habitat provides the perfect setting to host the largest salmon runs in the world as well as providing an abundance of food sources that allows for the rainbow Trout to grow larger than 30” in length.

Blue Quill Anglers Fly Shop and Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge have teamed up to provide a spectacular and inspiring fishing adventure during the absolute best time of the season to target these trophy sized rainbow Trout.


Pat and Kim Dorsey are renowned for their expertise and dedication to the sport of fly fishing. Blue Quill Fly Shop offers customers the best equipment with the most knowledgeable people as well as an understanding of what it means to provide good service. Brian Kraft built Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge in 1997 with the goal of putting a lodge on the best rainbow Trout river in the world as well as being closely located to many nearby fly-out streams that can be easily and quickly accessed with the lodge owned float aircraft. Brian and his staff of 16 are dedicated professionals that make sure that every detail is looked after and that no corners are cut in regards to customer service for your trip. The fishing resource of this area takes care of itself, but what makes your trip truly an experience to remember is the people and the lodge. Limited to 16 exclusive guests, Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge prides itself on providing quality fishing experiences each and everyday for our clients. Whether you choose to explore the wonders of the Kvichak River right out the front door of the lodge by boat or you take a fly-out in Katmai National Park through some of the most rugged and pristine wilderness Alaska has to offer, your day will be filled with tremendous fishing, breathtaking scenery, and professional people that are dedicated to making sure that you have a great day.

Recognized as the 2005 Orvis Endorsed Lodge of the Year and the 2008 Sporting Classic Magazine Best Fly Fishing Lodge, you will immediately be amazed of the comfort that you find in such a remote area. The main 3,500 square foot main lodge is complete with a great room that has a fireplace and plenty of couches and comfortable chairs that overlook the Kvichak River. This building also has our dinning room and bar area where unlike most fishing hangouts the fish stories really are true! The guest cabins are well appointed with two comfortable beds and private bathrooms. Each cabin has a deck that looks out over this wilderness.
