Founding the first sport fishing lodges in southwest Alaska's Bristol Bay Area gave aviation pioneers Ray Petersen and John Walatka the "pick of the hot spots". They named the lodges "Angler's Paradise". Operated today by Ray's son Sonny Petersen and a tireless staff, the three "Angler's Paradise Lodges" are the standard of excellence, located in majestic wilderness settings with superb fishing right in their back yards. And, being centrally located in the best trout and salmon fishing area of Alaska, gives "Angler's Paradise" guests the best and easiest access to hundreds of miles of lakes and streams.
Two hundred and fifty miles southwest of Anchorage lies the world famous "Bristol Bay Wild Trout Area". Rainbows, as well as char and arctic grayling are available throughout the season, and lake trout and northern pike are available in June and July. Each year five species of pacific salmon burst from the Bering Sea by the tens of millions to spawn in the lakes and rivers. The phenomenal angling is a result of the salmon run's enrichment of the lakes and streams of the "Wild Trout Area".
At "Angler's Paradise – Kulik Lodge", you will relax and renew yourself with superb fishing and breathtaking scenery. The comfortable accommodations and company of other sport fishing people make this a truly perfect vacation spot.
Kulik Lodge is Alaska's premier fly out sport fishing lodge and is located in a spectacular wilderness setting. Superb fishing is available adjacent to the lodge on the Kulik River and on the Kulik and Nonvianuk Lakes. The Kulik River is the epitome of a rainbow trout stream. Its gin clear water, gravel bottom and plentiful food supply provide an ideal habitat for the unbelievably large population of native rainbow trout.
From the first week of June through mid-October.
Kulik Lodge is Alaska's premier fly out sport fishing lodge located in the heart of the world's best rainbow trout and salmon fishing. Kulik Lodge operates from June to October.
Besides the great fishing right near the lodge, including fly outs in your stay will provide the means to fish other hot spots within a 100-mile radius of the lodge and allow you to take advantage of the variety of species of fish available in southwest Alaska: rainbow trout, arctic char, grayling, lake trout, pike, and five species of Pacific Salmon. Kulik has riverboats cached at various productive rivers and streams; or you may take a one day float trip or hike in from your landing area to a hidden stream. The opportunity to view the breathtaking scenery of southwest Alaska is always a bonus. The Aleutian Range includes numerous active volcanoes, glaciers and the multicolored tundra.
Your Kulik Lodge adventure will begin in Anchorage. You will most likely need to overnight prior to the day you are scheduled to arrive at Kulik. Your journey to Kulik begins when you board Katmailand's (Kulik's parent company) private Air Navajo Chieftain at Lake Hood air strip Anchorage.
Upon arrival at Kulik, you'll 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. You will fish the Kulik River on the day of arrival.
During the remaining 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.
Kulik's comfortable guest cabins accommodate two people and are equipped with modern facilities. The native spruce lodge building boasts a large stone fireplace, dining area and bar where complimentary cocktails are served each evening. In the relaxed camaraderie of Kulik, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, new friendships are formed and old friendships reaffirmed.
Kulik can accommodate 28 anglers. There are 3, 4, and 7 night packages available.

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.
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, Kulik's pitch-and-putt tundra golf is very popular (please don't bring clubs, they have some). Don't forget to bring your swim suit for the great hot-tub and sauna.
