World-class fly fishing
in Alaska’s Bristol Bay
Welcome to Rapids Camp
Rapids Camp Lodge offers unparalleled fly fishing in the heart of the famed Bristol Bay watershed, home to enormous rainbow trout, five species of salmon, Arctic char, pike, and grayling. Easy to get to, hard to leave: your destination is just an 80-minute flight from Anchorage, yet it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life.
And if you’re looking for more than a great fishing trip, we also offer glacier and volcano flight-seeing, bear and wildlife viewing, clam digging and eco-tourism activities. You name it and we have it – if it’s in Alaska, we do!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR THE FLY FISHING TRIP OF A LIFETIME.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I haven’t done much fly fishing?
That’s no problem at all. Our guests range from first-time anglers to expert world-travelers. Our guides are extremely patient and love teaching guests of all ability levels. Part of the beauty of fishing at Rapids Camp is that it’s a very prolific fishery – there are tons of fish and everybody will catch fish, regardless of skill level.
What if I don’t have all the gear?
Most of our guests bring most of their gear along, but we’ve got a wide variety of loaner gear – waders, boots, rods, reels and lines – available for guest use at no charge.
What kind of fish will I catch?
During the course of our season, our guests will catch all 5 Pacific salmon found in Alaska – King salmon (Chinook), Red salmon (Sockeye), Silver salmon (Coho), Pink salmon (Humpy) and Chum salmon (Dog). You will also catch great numbers of Dolly Varden, Rainbow Trout and Grayling.
Do you only allow fly fishing?
No, while most of our guests fish with fly rods, we are very happy to host guests who want to use spinning gear and/or conventional tackle.
