Upon landing in King Salmon, AK one of our friendly and experienced pilots will greet you in one of our three Beaver Havilland float planes and fly you and all you baggage to our lodge on the Kvichak River about 30 miles away. After your short, but beautiful flight to the lodge, our professional and courteous guides will meet you at the dock where you will be escorted to your rooms and the main lodge.
While you enjoy a cocktail from our open bar, excitedly unpack your baggage, or even join one our guides out front for some casting lessons, our staff will introduce themselves and get you situated with fishing licenses and whatever else you may need to help you feel at home.
One of our guides will sit down with you and your group to discuss the following days adventure and where you want to fish. Unlike many lodges in this area we cater to our guests and what they want to do! With over 30 rivers and streams to target big fish in, 3 floatplanes, Rafts and over 40 jet boats we will pick a place together that best suits you and your fishing desires.
At the end of a day at Alaska Rainbow Lodge our professional chefs and staff will serve a delicious and hearty meal in our spacious dining area while you and the other guests network. Once dinner is complete we invite you to enjoy your cocktail in our covered gazebo and drink in the beauty of Alaska, play some poker, relax in our sauna, walk the beautiful grounds, or even watch some fishing videos on our big screen television.
After a restful nights sleep in one of our comfortable queen or twin sized beds you will awake to hot coffee, juice, or tea delivered to your room. A long hot shower in your private bath, a hearty breakfast in our lodge, more hot coffee and you will be more than ready to go fishing! Your guides will meet you at the dock where they have already loaded the planes and will be waiting to help you load up and head out for the day. You will safely fly with your guide to your destination on a short flight and embark on your days adventure! Spend the morning targeting and catching big fish, walking with giant grizzly bears, watching bald eagles swoop and catch fish, and enjoying the serenity of Alaska. For lunch your guide will prepare you a hot meal on the river of either fresh caught fish, or hot soup and sandwiches prepared fresh, served and enjoyed in the most scenic areas of the World! Drink in the sights and enjoy a cold beer, soda, wine, Gatorade or water from the ice cooler before getting back to more epic Alaskan fishing.
With sore wrists and forearms you will be exchanging high fives as you load up on the Beaver and head back to the lodge to brag about your day to friends and coworkers online. It will be hard to stay awake on the flight home as our pilot flies you safely back to the lodge and the Beaver rumbles softly through the air, but try to keep those tired eyes open for the beautiful scenery we will be flying over! Don’t worry if the long day of catching fish catches up to you and you fall asleep on the flight…there’s still a whole week to go! Back at the lodge you will leave your waders and boots in our wader room for the next day, where they will be waiting warm and dry!
Time for cocktails and appetizers with the other guests while you trade stories and lies of the day. This is a good time to hear about where others fished and what they saw giving you an idea of what to do the next day. Use the Internet to catch up on business, take a nap, or practice up on your photography while our staff prepares another gourmet meal and gets ready for another epic day of fishing. We will again sit down with you and your group to discuss the following day and what options you have, deciding where you want to fish and giving you the chance to dictate your fishing experience. Enjoy another gourmet dinner, relax and get a comfortable and refreshing nights sleep as the following day will be just as awe inspiring as your first, but in no way the same!
