The Rock at Talarik
What is the guide to fisherman ratio?
We have 7 guides on staff for a max of 14 fishermen. We are very proud of our guide team. No young kids here that are just going to take you on a boat ride or a hike. These are all older professional men who have made guiding their life. They have multiple seasons of guiding in our area with valuable local knowledge of our fisheries guaranteeing you a great day on the river.
Does the lodge provide fishing equipment?
If you don’t have the proper rod selection for your week of fishing or just don’t want the hassle of traveling with your rods, we will provide you with the necessary gear. Iliamna River Lodge provides rods, reels, flies, leaders, tippet and everything else needed to fish our rivers. We also provide waders and wading boots. You can leave your waders at home or bring your own. This has been a great service for our guests (NON-felt bottom wading boots per Alaska Department of Fish and Game rules and no-studs). We ask that you bring a great Gore-Tex rain jacket . In case you forget it though, we have a stocked pro shop at the lodge for all your needs. For more info on this please refer to our equipment page.
