As if Becharof Lodge On The Egegik River isn’t remote enough, special day trips on bushplanes can take you into the heart of remote Alaska. Due to our unique location we have access to dozens of remote Alaskan streams.
Be it with fly rod or spinning gear, we can take you to some of Alaska’s most prized Arctic grayling, Arctic char, rainbow trout and coho streams.
At Becharof Lodge On The Egegik River you’re likely to see brown bears during your stay. But if you want to see Alaska’s biggest predator up-close and personal, we offer special trips to Brooks Falls.
A 30 minute bushplane flight from camp finds you on the banks of the Brooks River, host to the highest brown bear populations in the world. Here you’ll observe and photograph giant brown bears, up close, all day long.
New for 2021, Sockeye Salmon Fishing!
The Egegik River receives one of Alaska’s biggest runs of sockeye salmon, yet is one of the state’s most underutilized sport fisheries. Almost 2.4 million sockeye salmon, or red salmon, swam by our lodge last summer, which is why we’re going to be guiding for them this summer; a first in the lodge’s history.
We’ll be drifting and swinging flies through known red salmon travel routes. Sockeye salmon are hard fighting, and with a 5 fish a day limit, you’re assured of going home with some of the world’s best eating salmon! Summer daylight hours are long, and red salmon travel all day, so get ready for some fun, non-stop fishing action in one of Alaska’s most breathtaking settings, the Egegik River.
