Welcome to Royal Wolf Lodge BIG WILD RAINBOWS ON THE FLY




Our Dedication and Service is Unequaled


In the Center of the Most Prolific and Pristine Wild Rainbow Waters
Close, Convenient, and Easy Access Provides the Perfect Location to pursue Big Healthy Rainbows

A place where fly-fishing is taken seriously… Where you will fish with friends in the remote wilderness of Alaska… Where you will fall asleep at night to the sound of loons calling, and where most importantly when you step off the plane, you’ll be considered family.

Built on a promontory surrounded by lakes, rivers, streams and gently rolling hills, Royal Wolf Lodge is located in the center of Katmai National Park on 120 acres of privately owned wilderness. Providing private waters, as well as some of the most productive rainbow trout streams in all of Alaska, Royal Wolf is a fly-out lodge that lets you experience Alaska in a truly personal way.

For more than 18 years, we have been flying our guests to rivers and streams in the remote reaches of Alaska. With pilots that regard your air safety as paramount, we are proud of our tradition that has both pioneered and preserved wilderness fishing in Alaska.

While we specialize in fishing and guiding Alaska’s premier trophy trout waters, you, the clients are instrumental in planning each day. We like to “do it your way” and encourage participation in where and what style of fishing you prefer - it is after all, YOUR fishing expectations that we strive to surpass.

Fishing primarily wadeable streams and rivers, we also have jet-boats and rafts that allow us alternate access to the surrounding waters. Often fishing on our own private leases, we can ensure you seclusion and productivity. Additionally, our special aircraft, float equipped Helio-Couriers, permit us entry into areas that conventional float-planes find impossible. This allows us to fish areas in Alaska where few, or no others have ventured.

Royal Wolf is without a doubt a place you will wish to return, even bring the rest of your family. The lodge owners, Chris and Linda Branham, are second-generation Alaska wilderness lodge owners, with a tradition that dates back to pioneering Alaska. Together, they have brought their experience, knowledge and enthusiasm into the creation of this first class fishing lodge.

With the most productive streams and rivers only minutes from the lodge, each day we fly our guests and their expert guide to a different location for a day of great fishing, spectacular scenery and unique wildlife viewing opportunities.

From all of us at Royal Wolf Lodge, welcome! We look forward to seeing you and having you join our family!
