Intricate Bay Lodge is nestled in the prime location on Bristol Bay. Most lodges in the region require daily fly-out because they are not situated near good local fishing. When the weather turns, this can be a serious drawback. By contrast, the home waters of Intricate Bay Lodge include two world-class rivers: the Copper and the Gibraltar.
You get the best of both worlds; not only is the fishing excellent nearby, but the location is also very close to many “fly-out” rivers, and that means shorter flights. We can land you on the rivers and streams of Katmai National Park including the Moraine, Funnel, Battle, American rivers, also Kvichak River, New Halen River and Talarik River. Of course, the Copper and Gibraltar are the most famous, especially when targeting big rainbow trout, but we believe our guests should have the chance to see and experience the tremendous fishing diversity of the entire Bristol Bay / Lake Iliamna area; consequently, we frequently make trips to target species like rainbow trout, arctic char, grayling, lake trout, pike, and Pacific salmon.
