Fodor's Expert Review Brooks River

Katmai National Park and Preserve Body Of Water/Waterfall

The Katmai area is one of Alaska's premier sportfishing regions. You can fish for rainbow trout and salmon at the Brooks River, though seasonal closures have been put in place to prevent conflicts with bears and sometimes only fly-fishing is permitted; check locally for the latest information. For those who would like to venture farther into the park, seek out the two other backcountry lodges, or contact fishing-guide services based in King Salmon. A short walk up the Brooks River brings you to Brooks Falls.
