Join Montana Angler on an Alaskan adventure to the legendary Bristol Bay Region of Alaska in late summer of 2021. We will be staying at the new Intricate Bay Outpost which caters to small groups of 3-6 anglers. We will be targeting a variety of species and will have options to fly to different fisheries every day. Late August and early September is prime time to chase monster rainbows in the legendary tributaries of lake Iliamna and the remote fisheries of Katmai National Park. The new Intricate Bay Outpost program is offered by our friends at Intricate Bay Lodge, and we will enjoy the same quality of guides, pilots and service as at IBL.
The Outpost is located in the heart of the Bristol Bay region and is home to the world's largest run of Pacific salmon as well as some of the best trophy rainbow trout fishing in the world. With an arsenal of float planes and jet boats we will have incredible access to the most productive fisheries in the region. Anglers will be able to target some of Alaska's most famous remote fisheries such as the Copper, Gibralter, Kvicack, Iliamna, Newhalen, Talirik, Moraine, Funnel, Kamishak to name a few.
The Alaskan season is short and and dates go fast!
