Alaska Hosted Fishing Trips

2022 and 2023 Hosted Weeks

Aniak River Lodge was Larry’s favorite Alaska freshwater trip.

Our Aniak River Hosted Week history

Aniak River rainbows

Larry started hosting trips on the Aniak in 2006, and we’ve since hosted up to eight weeks a year here. There are few places in Alaska that you can catch numbers of rainbows, silvers, dollies and grayling along with an occasional sheefish and northern pike. Our clients have landed over 50 rainbows a day, in the 20” to 30” range. The Aniak is one of Alaska’s best rivers because of its variety of species and the sheer numbers of fish you’ll catch.
It helps that this river is comparatively undiscovered. You’ll see very few anglers.
Clients have landed over 100 silvers in one day. Silvers are best here from August 10th through September 1st. This is also a great time for beautiful leopard rainbow, grayling, char, and a few sheefish. Aniak rainbow fishing may be Alaska’s best.

Aniak Accommodations

Aniak River Boats

You’re guided here with two anglers per jet boat and guide.
Aniak River Lodge is now an Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Lodge. The Lodge is the only fixed camp operation on the Aniak. We'll stay for five nights at Aniak's Mid-River Camp and two days of our trip, we'll fish from their deluxe tent camp about 40 miles above the mouth of the Aniak. This puts us close to all the action for salmon, rainbow, dollies, grayling and... We’ll be near islands and braids that create the best rainbow fishing. The deluxe tent camp has hot shower facilities, a great dining area, a generator for charging camera batteries, limited (spotty) Wi-Fi, carpeted Weatherport tents with individual cots, and individual heaters. Two anglers per tent, guide, and boat.
