Rainbow King Lodge operates seasonally from June to September. Sea-bright king salmons lead the charge in June, providing some of the most challenging angling on the face of the planet, with sockeye salmon fishing following their lead in late June and early July. Silver salmon providing the grand finale in August and September. Alaska salmon fishing is always rewarding. The grand prize of Alaska fishing, rainbow trout are available all season with the huge trophy rainbows moving up out of Lake Iliamna in Mid-August and September. A short flight to the coast at Calypso Bay we go halibut fishing. Arctic grayling and Arctic char are both hard fighters that are in the rivers and creeks all season.
