Alaska King Salmon Fishing
At Its Best

Nushagak King Salmon

By reputation, the Nushagak River is the premier destination for river king salmon fishing in Alaska.  With all the great rivers in Alaska, how can we make this claim.  It’s easy, the Nushagak produces the largest number of king salmon returning annually (runs exceed 100,000 most years), access is extremely limited (fly-in only = no crowds) and regulations allow unlimited fishing opportunities (catch and release allowed after your daily limit).  Why go anywhere else ?
> In addition, abundant returns of chum and sockeye salmon, abundant wildlife, float planes, all with first class food and accommodations in a remote setting.

Our Boats - Willie Predators

We fish out of top quality, safe and comfortable Willie Predator river boats. Our 20 ‘ boats are equipped with newer 115 hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboards, 4 stroke trolling motors, electronics and all required safety equipment. These boats were designed originally for Alaska’s Kenai River. The boats have a 6 foot wide floor and nearly 8 feet across the beam, making them a very stable platform that an angler can stand up and move around while fighting big king salmon. Boats are set up to fish 4 anglers plus guide. Padded seats have back rests and are mounted on moveable bases to maximize the amount of deck space”

We primarily use conventional bait casting gear, including Lamiglas Certified Pro series rods and Rogue Rods. Our rods our rated at 10-25 lb med-heavy action making for a very sporting fight. Our main techniques include side drifting (or “dragging”), trolling with light lead and back trolling/bouncing. Most our methods are “active fishing” methods were the angler is casting and holding the rod prior to feeling the bite and setting the hook. Our reels are Ambassudor or Okuma level wind reels rigged with 25 lb mainline.
