GROSVENOR LODGE - ALASKA

 

GROSVENOR LODGE - ALASKA

A remote and very private operation located on the narrows between Grosvenor Lake and Colville Lake, Grosvenor Lodge is a small, intimate fishing operation that accommodates a maximum of only six anglers per week. Guests can expect total seclusion, comfortable accommodations, and excellent fishing for rainbow trout, char, lake trout, northern pike, and sockeye salmon, as the “home waters” of Grosvenor remain almost completely untouched by other area fishing operations. As an overall Alaskan destination, this lodge is truly a place you can call your own – isolated in the wilderness with great fishing, incredible views, and extensive wildlife. Area feeder streams, the American River, and the “narrows” section directly in front of the lodge all receive tremendous runs of salmon smolt which in turn attract large concentrations of fish. Grosvenor Lodge also offers access to permit-controlled waters on the lower American River and daily fly-out trips upon request.

Typical Length of Stay

Standard stay is a 7 night / 7 fishing day package, although there are 4 night / 4 fishing day and 3 night / 3 fishing day packages available. Transfer days are Mondays and Fridays. Please call Yellow Dog for details.

Accommodations and Lodging

Grosvenor Guest CottageAccommodating only six guests at a time, Grosvenor truly provides the "it feels like my own fishing lodge" experience and is ideal for families, business associates or a group of fishing buddies. Guests are accommodated in the three guest cabins which have heat and electricity. A completely modern bathhouse is situated right next to the cabins.

The kitchen and dining area feature a great view of Grosvenor Lake. The small, main lodge houses the lounging area and bar, where complimentary cocktails are served each evening. The personable staff, comfortable accommodations, and excellent fishing assure you a memorable fishing experience.

Food and Beverages

All meals for your group are prepared by the camp chef. The menu is very diverse. Please let us know prior to your trip of any dietary requests. The lodge will do their best to accommodate those requests. All meals are typically taken in the main kitchen and dining area, although lunches can be packed for full days on the water.

Fishing Information

Nice Alaskan RainbowSince the lodge is located in an area unfrequented by others, anglers have pretty much private access to the wide-open fishing in the lake system and the narrows directly in front of the lodge. The lake system boasts one of the largest sockeye salmon runs in the world, which in turn provides food and nutrients for the area's abundant rainbow trout population. All the feeder streams, and especially the narrows directly in front of the lodge, receive a tremendous run of salmon smolt which attract large concentrations of fish to the mouths of these areas. This smolt run provides a very unique attraction that the guides at the lodge call the “Trout Boil”. At certain times of the season, the local waters have so many predatory fish crashing the smolt that you can hear the “boil” even as you sleep!

By nature of its isolated location, Grosvenor can provide an amazingly quaint and exclusive Alaskan experience without using float planes on a daily basis and without sharing the area waters with other anglers. This is an ideal location for groups of friends or family, as six anglers can guarantee the lodge to themselves. The ultimate private setting!

Area fishing includes day trips over to Lower American Creek, fishing the narrows directly in front of the lodge, and numerous streams and creeks in close proximity to the lodge. You can also arrange daily fly-outs to some of the best rivers in the regions, including the Kulik, Moraine, Funnel, Brooks, and others.

Boats and Equipment

Lodge aircraft includes two Cessna 207’s equipped with turbine engines, one Cessna 26, one DeHavilland Beaver, and one DeHavilland Otter – all of which are on floats. A Navajo Chieftain on wheels provides round trip transportation from Anchorage to Kulik Lodge, and a float plane then delivers you from Kulik to Grosvenor. The Lodge does include rods, reels, and waders if needed. Terminal tackle and flies are not included.

** Alaska is now enforcing a ban on felt-soled wading boots to help prevent the spread of potential waterborne parasites and diseases. Please keep this in mind while planning for your trip.

Non-Angling Activities and Options

Alaskan Fly-Out PlaneGrosvenor Lodge has a fantastic sister lodge located on the nearby Brooks River, meaning that day trips for what may be the best bear-viewing in the region are easily arranged.

There are also day trips to the “Valley of 10,000 Smokes” and other area attractions. While at Grosvenor, wildlife viewing opportunities abound, so we strongly recommend you bring your camera or video equipment, binoculars, plenty of memory cards and batteries. Each season clients at Grosvenor see a variety of animals such as Moose, Alaskan Brown Bear, Bald Eagles, Wolves, Lynx, and Wolverine, sometimes without even leaving the lodge!

Other Information

Katmai National Park is one of the last trophy sport fisheries in the world with a 100% native stock of fish. The fish grow and mature slowly due to the short summer season and cold water temperatures, so it is imperative that we do our best to protect this valuable resource. All hooks fished while at Grosvenor are required to be barbless, and only single hooks are allowed (no trebles). In addition to releasing unharmed all rainbows, as required by law, they also release all other freshwater species. Guests may take home a limited catch of salmon depending upon the availability of the fish and the freezer space at the lodge. Upon arrival at the lodge, the guides will show all guests proper fish handling techniques to ensure the vitality of these wonderful creatures.
