The owner says

Wildman Lodge is a remote wilderness Alaska fishing lodge providing guided fishing trips on the pristine Alaska Peninsula for Salmon, Steelhead, Rainbow Trout and Arctic Char. Wildman Lodge is Alaska's premiere sport fishing lodge. Before choosing an Alaska lodge, SIMPLY ASK, "How close is your nearest neighbor?" We are not located in a village or on a river with ANY other lodge.

Wildman Lodge is truly a wilderness lodge where you won't see anyone that you didn't see at breakfast. AND... You won't find better fly fishing water than we have right here on Ocean River, a beautiful artesian river where high and muddy water or crowded fishing conditions simply do not exist!


About

Your host at Wildman Lake Lodge: Gary “Butch” & Kathy King, Owners. Since 1996, Butch and his wife, Kathy, have shared the responsibility of operating Wildman Lake Lodge on the Alaska Peninsula, where you will find them spring, summer and fall. Gary “Butch” King holds Alaska Master Guide and Outfitter license #97 and has been guiding sportsmen on the Alaska Peninsula since 1971. As a veteran Alaska bush pilot, he has logged over 12,500 accident free hours flying single and multi-engine aircraft.  Butch is a commercial instrument pilot as well as an FAA Licensed Mechanic.  Born and raised in Alaska, he has traveled all parts of the state, starting his career as a camp boy at the Wrangell Mountain Lodge in 1966.  He has come up through the ranks, performing every task in the guiding business.

Fly-fishing experience at Wildman Lake Lodge: Wildman Lodge is a remote wilderness Alaska fishing lodge providing guided fishing trips on the pristine Alaska Peninsula for Salmon, Steelhead, Rainbow Trout and Arctic Char. We offer fishing adventures of three types namely: Flyfishing, Sport Fishing and Fly Out Fishing. Many of our anglers enjoy using double hand Spey rods for salmon and steelhead, while others prefer the traditional single hand fly rods. Whatever your pleasure, our remote wilderness rivers lend themselves well to a wading and casting fly fishing trip for salmon, rainbow, char or steelhead. The Alaska Peninsula has many such fly fishing rivers. We use Jet boats for transportation along these streams, but wade fishing, on firm black volcanic sand bottoms, is typical on these Alaska Peninsula rivers. Available species are King, Sockeye, Chum, Pink and Silver salmon, plus Rainbow, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden and wild Steelhead. Floating fly lines with sink tips are favored on most rivers, but anglers wanting to try dry flies for Rainbow and Char or top water poppers (wogs) for Silver Salmon will need a floating line. We use 6 weight rods for trout and char, 8 weight rods for most salmon and either a 9 weight or 10 weight is preferred for King Salmon fishing. Click here for quick link country guide.

I like my guide but i loved the place. This was my third trip with Butch. Words cannot express the surroundings, service and great fishing we had. The services Wildman Lodge provided were first class. Hope to get back in the near future. Ken Muth
