Iliamna River Lodge located in Bristol Bay, is the sister lodge of the famed Rainbow River Lodge, Alaska.

Front Range Anglers is thrilled to announce some limited availability angler spots at one of Alaska’s most special Flyin/Flyout fishing lodges. Chase large plentiful aggressive rainbows, silvers and dollies at the famed Iliamna River Lodge on Lake Iliamna Alaska.  Bill & Mel Betts operate a world class fishing operation at the Iliamna River Lodge  and count most of their clients as personal friends. Usually this lodge has no space during the season as its almost always filled with returning clients, this year is slightly different with the Covid-19 travel difficulties.  Alaska is continuing to be open but effective Aug. 11th, all anglers must have a negative PCR test prior to being allowed to board their departing aircraft for Anchorage.  This is comforting knowing that everyone boarding the plane has tested negative on a COVID test. The lodge has an easy, no-hassle system of providing a test for you before your trip. No issues there.  Join FRA owner Steve McLaughlin for an exciting week of nonstop fishing action the week of Sept 13-19, 2020.  A total of 5 rods are available!  Fishing is done by jet boats on the local rivers, so you can choose from 3, 4 or 5 days of flyouts in the  Dehavilland Beavers airplanes.  Enjoy superb cuisine, and fabulous new, clean accommodations in the lodges new cabins.  If Sept.13-19th doesn’t work for your schedule, then Iliamna River Lodge has the following 2020 dates available for Sunday to Saturday 6 day fishing weeks:

August 23-29th                                 Salmon & aggressive rainbows
