There's no better base for a fishing trip in Katmai than Brooks Lodge. Overlooking the river, the lodge has been run by the same family for over 60 years, so they really know the fishing here. It's not a fully-guided lodge, so you'll find affordable rates. You can also hire a guide if you want, or use their transportation services to get to remote lakes and rivers, or fish on your own. If you’re looking to explore the area, Brooks Lodge also offers bear viewing opportunities.
