When everything is fishing well, we almost have too many fishing options available. Imagine trying to decide whether to fish for 25 pound pike on the surface, fresh sea lice covered salmon near the coast, hiking small creeks for arctic char in the mountain lake streams, rainbows and dollies on the Nushagak, Agulapak, Kvichak, etc., or a mixed bag grayling, lake trout and rainbows on our home river. That’s the dilemma our guests must face each day.
By hosting just 10 – 12 guests per week, we have the flexibility to go where the fishing is the best for what you want to fish for, not where a pre-determined schedule needs you to go. Additionally, we have bear viewing, hiking, and kayaking options for those who would like a change of pace or just need a day to rest a sore fishing arm.
Royal Coachman lodge is located on the Nuyakuk River in Alaska, a great home river for the rare non fly-out days and for after hours fishing. The fly fishing lodge in Alaska has no neighbors, no boats, no cars, and no planes going by the lodge, just peace and quiet right on the river. We are located in the middle of the Wood-Tickchik State Park (the largest state park in the U.S.). The fishing lodge in Alaska's capacity is only 10-12 guests (private groups up to 12), and with 2 Dehavilland Beavers, you will have complete flexibility. Our fishing guides are some of the best guides in the industry (our guides have on average 10 years of experience of guiding in Alaska) specializing in fly fishing in Alaska. With two exclusive permits in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge, one private trophy trout fishery permit, permits to fish Katmai National Park and Wood Tikchik State Park, three department of natural resources permits, and nearly 20 boats cached throughout the best fishing locations in our part of Alaska, we offer an unsurpassed Alaskan fly fishing experience. We also offer discounts for groups of four and ten.
Our primary goal is to have great fly fishing in Alaska with uncrowded waters and to provide anglers with the Alaskan experience they desire. You can catch all five Salmon species, trophy Rainbow Trout, Char, Dolly Varden, massive Pike, Grayling, and even some Sheefish are available.
