Angler's Alibi lodge is located on the fabled Alagnak River in Bristol Bay, one of the most prolific salmon rivers in the world. This is a true Alaska experience with fly in access only. This means no crowds or roads, just unbelievable fishing, scenery, and wildlife viewing. We have been here for more than 20 years and have one of the highest return rates in the industry, 80% to 90%!

We utilize 7 guide boats, with 6 guides and have a 2 to 1 guest to guide ratio. Our chef serves amazing meals daily, and our shore staff is always eager to maintain the utmost level of comfort to our guests while at Angler's Alibi.

My father and I have been going to Angler's Alibi since 2006 and several years, we have gone up twice so that we can fish for kings and then silvers. The fishing has always been great with many incredible days. in addition to the great fishing, the wildlife that you get to see is always a great bonus. The camp is extremely comfortable especially given the remoteness of the location. Finally the staff are the best. They work hard to make the trip perfect for everyone and I must say that they succeed. Overall, I totally recommend Angler's Alibi to anyone looking for a outstanding salmon fishing trip in Alaska.

I have one word which describes my first visti to Anglers Alibi, AWESOME!
I was extremely impressed with the quality of service and the quantity of iifsh. I have never fly fished before, but after just a couple of hours I was catching these huge fish on a fly rod! What more can I say;.again it is AWSOME! One may think that the word awesome is overused and lost it'scredibility, but I rarely use the term and I really think the whole trip, the flights in and out of the camp, the food, the staff, the accomodations were top notch Let's not forget about the fishing,and youe will see that aweswome is the only sinlgle word I can think of to adequately describve a week at Anglers Alibi. JP knows what he is doing and he does it very well. I will continue to recommend this fantastic fishing camp. I can hardly wait until I visit again.

In the summer of 2014, I visited Angler's Alibi for the first time to experience salmon fishing in Alaska. And, the trip proved to be greater then anticipated. The staff at Angler's Alibi made me feel so at home in the Alaskan Coastal wilderness that it was like fishing with old friends. The food was top notch and the fishing, well I now know what a salmon run is. I have never experienced anything quite like this as the Coho, Chum, Pinks and Kings filled the river so fully that it seemed any mere mortal could simply walk across the river on the backs of these tasty fish. So, if you asked me if I would recommend Angler's Alibi, I would simply say GO!

My week at Angler's Alibi was nothing short of awesome. Not only was the camp comfortable and the food outstanding the attention provided by the staff was beyond compare. Whether a seasoned fisherman or new at the sport, you will have an unforgettable experience here and catch more fish in one week than you have probably seen in your lifetime. 2014 was my first season at the camp and I am already scheduled for a week in the 2015 season. Can't wait until next July.
