Reel Action Alaska operates as a full service tent lodge that has been designed to provide our guests with all the comforts needed for living in the bush. The location of our lodge (1 mile from tide water) was carefully chosen to provide our guests a front row seat to the freshest chrome bright fly fishing action in Alaska. The best holding water to fly fish for fresh run kings, silvers, chums, and pinks is right in front of our lodge. What makes our experience unique is while having the best access to chrome bright salmon action we also have a tremendous rainbow trout fishery in both the lower and upper river. Kanektok River leopard rainbows are spectacular to admire and a lot of fun to catch - top water action is normal for them and our favorite way to entice them is with mouse patterns! After a long full day of fly fishing you will be staying in all new customized wall tents equipped with all the amenities to be comfortable in the Alaskan bush. The interior of the tents were specifically designed by our owners and staff that have over 30 years of combined guiding and work experience in Alaska.

Fly-fishing experience at Reel Action Alaska Lodge: The Kanektok (aka the Chosen River) is a fly fisherman’s dream. The river is the perfect size and provides outstanding spawning grounds for all five species of Alaskan Pacific salmon. Located in southwestern Alaska near the village of Quinhagak, our camp is perfectly situated within the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge. Encompassing over 4 million acres, it is home to some of the most prolific salmon runs in the world and hosts a wide variety of fish, bird and mammal species. From rolling tundra to the highest mountain peaks, and from the rugged coastlines to crystal clear rivers, the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge is a haven for all things wild. A magical place by any account, its ability to support wildlife and sustain natural populations of WILD fish truly set it apart. In the clear waters of the Kanektok, anglers will find king, coho, sockeye, chum and pink salmon, as well as trophy-sized native rainbow trout, arctic char, grayling, and dolly varden. The Kanektok and its tributaries and braids give anglers access to some of the best sport fishing in the world. We are extremely lucky to be here on this river and are excited to share this very special area with you. Click here for quick country guide.
