Upon arrival at Kulik, youíll be taken to the main lodge to receive your Alaska fishing license and a brief orientation. As you settle into your cabin a Kulik guide will stop by to answer questions about fishing options, flies and gear. He will outfit you with waders and fishing gear if needed. You will fish the Kulik River on the day of arrival. The Kulik guide staff will provide fishing equipment, instruction, boat service and techniques for releasing fish unharmed. During the full days of your stay float planes will provide fly-out fishing for those who have chosen the fly-out option, allowing you a chance to experience the wide variety of fishing challenges offered in the Katmai area. Lunches will be provided by your guide, and after a full day of fishing you will return to the lodge in time for a hot shower and complimentary cocktails before dinner.
The long summer evenings allow for more guided fishing, fly tying, bear watching, hiking, casting instruction or just relaxing around our giant stone fireplace. While still in the developmental stage, our pitch-and-putt tundra golf is very popular (please donít bring clubs, we have some). Donít forget to bring your swim suit for our great hot tub and sauna.
The wildlife and scenery of Katmai are spectacular. Along with many species of sport fish, you will see a wide variety of water fowl and other bird life. Alaskan brown bears, bald eagles and parka squirrels are Kulik regulars. Caribou, moose, Canadian lynx, beaver, and mink are occasionally sighted. Forests of spruce, birch, cottonwood, aspen and willow are interspersed with large areas of colorful tundra. The area is mountainous with hundreds of lakes and rivers.
Alaskaís native fish grow and mature slowly due to the short growing season and cold water temperatures. Kulik guests are asked to immediately release all of the fresh water species. Since millions of salmon are commercially harvested in the area, a limited catch of these species may be taken home if you book a guided fishing fly out.
