Plummers Lodges

The Bristol Bay watershed is not only home to the world's richest commercial and sport salmon fisheries, but is also Alaska's only designated "Trophy Rainbow Trout" area. Here, snow-fed streams flow crystal clear from the mountains across the rolling tundra to the sea. The purity of this nutrient rich environment allows fish to grow to enormous size. With annual salmon runs in the millions and Rainbow Trout in excess of thirty inches, anglers throughout the world see this area as the pinnacle of sportfishing.

Sitting on the riverbank overlooking this pristine area, The Alaska Sportsman's Lodge consists of a 3,000 square foot solid cedar chalet style main lodge, three duplex cabins for guests, the "Iliamna cabin", a sauna, and three duplex cabins for the staff. The lodge will accommodate 16 exclusive guests per week. The lodge and all the cabins have hot and cold running water and 24 hour a day electrical service from our generator plant. The main lodge has a hardwood floored dinning room; a comfortable living room with a fireplace, couches and rockers; a wet bar; a fly tying area; a tackle/guides room; a loft with a reading area and map room; and a laundry room. The main lodge is spacious enough for all of the guests to stretch out and relax, yet it is intimate enough to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow guests and guides.

The guest cabins were designed with privacy in mind. Just because you are going to a remote area of the world does not mean that your accommodation need to be primitive. Each double occupancy room is complete with a private bathroom, shower, and two very comfortable beds with linens, and comforters. Each day your room will be cleaned by one of our staff members. The entire lodge is connected by a boardwalk that runs from the floating dock up to the main lodge.

The Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge is a remote sport fishing and fly fishing lodge located in the Bristol Bay area of Western Alaska. This area is the pinnacle of Alaska fishing for five species of salmon (Chinook, Sockeye, Chum, Coho, and Pink) and Alaska’s largest rainbow Trout. This is the designated “Trophy Rainbow Trout” area of Alaska. Fly fishing opportunities are endless. The lodge is located on the Kvichak River four miles downstream from Lake Iliamna and is accessed by air. Only 16 guests per week stay at the lodge. This Alaska lodge has all the comforts of home, yet we still have the great Alaska flavor of being in the wilderness. Anglers will enjoy superb fishing opportunities right on the river that the lodge is located on. The Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge also offers excellent caribou and upland bird hunting trips.

Fishing Program - We fish by wading, drifting, casting, or plugging. You can fly fish or use conventional gear. There are streams that are fly fishing only areas and there are rivers that allow either fly fishing or conventional gear. The type of fishing is your choice. Your guide is there to help you and to educate you about the rivers we fish. They will fish you whichever way you enjoy the most. All of the methods are successful. The Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge was built on the Kvichak River for three very important reasons. First, the Kvichak River has the largest salmon run in the world that swims right past the lodge every summer. Secondly, the Kvichak River has Alaska's largest rainbow Trout. Period! The Kvichak will consistently produce rainbow Trout in excess of 28". The population of fish is very healthy and the fish are protected by Alaska Department of Fish & Game regulations for catch & release. The third reason the Kvichak River was our desired location to build the lodge was because of the close proximity to other excellent fishing streams that can be quickly accessed by using the lodge floatplanes. We are only short flights from some excellent fly fishing only streams for rainbows and to some fantastic salmon streams.

By locating the lodge on a trophy river such as the Kvichak, we have assured our guests that they will have the opportunity to fish every day during their stay at the lodge. Most lodges in this area have a program that is structured so that you must fly-out everyday because there is limited fishing where their lodge is located. It is very important to choose a lodge that is able to provide trophy fishing opportunities everyday of the season.

At the Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge, we have the best of both worlds. The fishing is excellent on our "Home"river and we are very close to many "Fly-out rivers."Many times throughout the season, especially when targeting big rainbow Trout, the Kvichak is the river of choice to be on. But, throughout the Bristol Bay / Lake Iliamna area there are tremendous fishing opportunities and we want our guests to have the chance to see and experience the flavor of this great area. With that in mind, the lodge has its own private float planes and pilots to take guests to different rivers throughout the area to fish for salmon, Arctic Char, and rainbow Trout. Our central location makes many of the remote streams very accessible and only a short flight away. We are near Katmai National Park and Preserve and have permits to operate on "limited access"rivers. The benefit of choosing to visit the Alaska Sportsman's Lodge is that whether you decide to fly-out to fish a nearby stream or stay and experience the wonders that our home river offers, your fishing day will be filled with adventure and excitement. All of these fly-outs are included in the package price.
