Guth's Lodge - The World's Premier Fly Fishing Destination!

Accessible only by air, Guth's Lodge is located on a remote area on the Iliamna river. Each week during the summer fishing season, fisherman return to the lodge to renew friendship, enjoy the majestic scenery that is impossible to capture on film and experience the best sport fishing in the world today.

FISHING PROGRAM
You will fish the Iliamna/Bristol Bay drainages of Southwest Alaska. This area is the premier Rainbow trout and Artic char fishing area of Alaska. Rainbow trout ranging up to 12 pounds are common. Bristol Bay is also the spawning grounds of all five species of Pacific Salmon as well as Arctic Char, Arctic Grayling and Northern Pike. Guth's is located only 15 miles from the Halibut rich salt waters of Lower Cook Inlet where halibut are regularly caught in excess of 100 pounds.

The majority of the fishing is stream fishing and is accomplished by wading or by jet boat. A typical week of fishing will offer a variety of fishing opportunities in which you can choose the majority of your daily fishing destinations. Bush wheeled planes are used to reach the remote streams of the Bristol Bay areas and the fresh water streams flowing into lower Cook Inlet. There are also numerous jet outboard equipped river boats on streams throughout Bristol Bay that allow us to fly into and fish the best streams and rivers.
