Your host at Rapids Camp Lodge: Rapids Camp Lodge, Team. Rapids Camp Lodge was designed exclusively with comfort in mind; our entire philosophy is to create ease for our guests. In every sense we are a reflection of a passion for excellence. Rapids Camp Lodge is a facility with a fishing program like none other in Bristol Bay. We own 60 acres and over a mile and a half of river frontage right in the heart of Bristol Bay, and this private oasis provides a perfect location from which to launch our expert fly-out program. With a spare-no-expense ideology, we have assembled the most spectacular fleet of planes and boats ever put together in one package.
Fly-fishing experience at Rapids Camp Lodge: Most of our guests do not want to hard-core hike, which is just fine. Perhaps better than any other lodge in Bristol Bay, we have the ability with our boats, rafts and planes to make your trip as leisurely as you like. Imagine landing on the dunes next to a remote trophy Char river with no other anglers for miles; you will literally roll out of the plane into the river. For years Rapids Camp Lodge has been diligently working on our ability to provide the worlds most desirable custom fishing program. No other lodge in Alaska can boast a greater ability to deliver all types of fishing to such an unsurpassed level. Salmon fishing in Alaska is what most fishermen come to Alaska for. That will make it no surprise that one of our favorite things to do is exposing fishermen to all 5 species of Salmon. Most fly fishermen will love fishing the abundant Chinook (King) Salmon, Sockeye (Red) Salmon, Coho (Silver) Salmon, Keta (Chum) Salmon and Pink Salmon. One adventure you won’t soon forget is fishing for these Salmon and getting to experience a wide variety of Alaska’s natural beauty. Click here for quick link country guide.
