Tikchik Narrows Lodge was started in 1969 by Alaska sportfishing pioneers Bob and Gayle Curtis in the waters of Bristol Bay. At that time the Curtis’s owned and operated Wood River Lodge and Bob used to fly up to the Tikchik Narrows to take his anglers fishing. Bob always considered the Tikchik Narrows of the Bristol Bay area to be the best fishing around. He would walk up on top of the rock knoll at the tip of the peninsula and dream of building a lodge there, which he did in 1969 when he sold Wood River and devoted his time, money and love to Tikchik Narrows Lodge.
Over the years Tikchik Narrows Lodge has grown and developed an incredible Bristol Bay, Alaska sportfishing program with a network of over 40 boats located throughout the region. No other lodge in Alaska has more experience than Tikchik Narrows Lodge.
