A great time for trophy rainbows and coho salmon.Call for availability.Why Intricate Bay Lodge?Location-Location-LocationIBL has great home water. We do not have to fly out daily nor do we need to fly at the crack of dawn to beat the other fly out lodges to the fishing hole. Truth be told, many of the other lodges are getting early starts to fly and fish our home water, the Copper River. When we do fly out, the majority of our flights are under 20 minutes.World Class Copper River Rainbows.
The Copper River is a classic Alaska trout fishing stream providing epic dry fly fishing, streamer fishing, nymph fishing, and perhaps the most exciting way to catch rainbows on the Copper – the Mighty Mouse fly.Silver Salmon on the Kamishak.
Coho salmon are beautiful fish. They enter freshwater dime bright and have a brilliant rosy gill plate. Coho’s average 6-12 lbs but there are always a few big bucks caught throughout the season topping out at 15-16 lbs. Recent strong runs might have a little to do with why they consider the Kamishak River to be one of Alaska’s greatest coho fisheries!
Kvichak River Bows will keep you up at night.
The Kvichak River is one of the best chances for a shot at Alaska’s biggest Rainbow Trout, where Rainbows grow in excess of 30 inches.Luxury Lodging at it’s finest.
Construction completed in 2014 makes Intricate Bay Lodge the newest constructed lodge on Lake Iliamna and in Bristol Bay by 20 years. First class in every aspect, the lodge, the staff, the planes, boats and rafts.
Comforts of home
Just because you are far from home in a remote land doesn’t mean you can’t experience the comforts of home. Fine leather furniture, deluxe beds, wifi, 24 hour electricity, hot water and service.
Cold drinks and fish stories.
In our bar area, we only have one rule – no lying unless you are telling a fish story. A great space to gather and enjoy appetizers and drinks after your day’s adventure.
Return home to a Hot Tub
You have hiked upstream for the perfect drift. You set the hook just right. Your fish of a lifetime ran downstream and you gave chase. You landed and safely released your trophy. After all that, you deserve a soak in the hot tub with an incredible view.
Wrap around Deck
The sun doesn’t always shine in Alaska but when it does there is not a more beautiful space to sit back, relax, have a drink and enjoy life.
The Dehavilland Beaver
IBL is proud of its new aircraft – a Dehavilland Beaver. The new, larger plane is a great addition to the exceptional fly-out client experience IBL delivers.
