Wayne McGee - Owner ATA Lodge, Alagnak Wild River, Bristol Bay, Alaska

Wayne has been fishing across Alaska for the past 17 years.  It had always been his lifelong dream to run a world class fishing operation on a prolific Alaskan river system.  And that is exactly what you get on the Alagnak River with Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge.  Wayne has fished across the globe from Tiger Fish to Nile Perch in the Congo and Nile Rivers of Africa, to Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout in Norway and Scotland!  He owned a charter boat company based in Senegal, West Africa chasing Blue Marlin, Tuna and Sailfish.  But it is in Alaska, in particular Bristol Bay, and now on the Wild Alagnak River, where you’ll find him sharing his passion for the beauty and  bounty of this very special river with you. 

Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is situated on the remote banks of the wild and scenic Alagnak River and is the perfect wilderness fishing retreat. Boasting a world-famous run of all five species of pacific salmon, the Alagnak is also home to a host of resident fish, such as leopard rainbow trout, arctic char and grayling. This prestigious river is located within the Katmai National Park, with its headwaters in the surrounding mountains and drains into Bristol Bay. It is also famously known as “The Branch River” for its seemingly endless braids, where 10 miles of river can easily contain 30 miles of fishable waters. With such exclusive river access, you are sure not to be bothered by any crowds.
