In 1982, Ron Hayes and his wife, Sharon, built Alaska Rainbow Lodge on the Kvichak River for three very important reasons:
- First, the Kvichak River has the largest salmon run in the world that swims right past the lodge every summer.
- Secondly, the Kvichak River has some of Alaska’s largest Rainbow Trout… period! The Kvichak will consistently produce rainbow trout in excess of 28″.
- The third reason the Kvichak River was the desired location to build our lodge was because of its proximity to other excellent Alaska fishing streams that can be quickly accessed using the lodge’s float-planes. All combined, these rivers provide guests the best fishing in Alaska.
We are only short flights from some excellent fly-fishing-only streams for rainbows, as well as some fantastic salmon streams.
