Getting Your Catch Home from Katmai Lodge Alaska
We know most of our guests like to take salmon home. Fish fillets will be vacuum sealed, frozen, and packed in airline approved waxed boxes.
In June and July, you may take one 50 lb. fish box which can include 1 adult male King, plus Sockeye, Chum or Pinks (even year runs). Beginning August 1, your 50lb. box can include Chum, Pinks (even year runs) and Silvers.
The Alagnak River system is in the only designated trophy trout fishery in Alaska. It and all other areas where we fish are single hook, no bait or scent. Rainbow trout are all catch and release. We practice strict catch and release on all other native stream fish as well i.e.: Grayling, Arctic Char and Dolly Varden.
With these policies and by promoting catch and release, we can help ensure that fishing along the Alagnak River continues to remain strong.
