Alaska’s Gold Creek Lodge is an Alaska fishing and adventure lodge perched on the banks of the world-famous Naknek River in beautiful King Salmon, Alaska. Entrance to Katmai National Park and located on the southwestern peninsula approximately 280 miles from Anchorage, within the Bristol Bay watershed. King Salmon is only accessible by air, which ensures you a truly remote wilderness experience away from the crowds. The Naknek River and the surrounding area hosts prolific runs of five species of salmon and is a designated trophy rainbow trout area. The Naknek river is a tidal river which brings in a fresh crop of salmon with each new tide, ensuring excellent fishing every day of the salmon run. The Naknek River is boasted by Fish Alaska Magazine as “the best rainbow trout fishing in Alaska,” and we agree! With the fish comes incredible wildlife!
