Join Michael Vanstrom on a Alaska Elite Outdoor adventure deep in the diverse geography of unit 17 which offers the some of the healthiest lakes, rivers, and streams that Alaska has to offer. Located in the Southwestern portion of Alaska in the Bristol Bay area on the Nushagak & Mulchatna rivers, hunters can expect top quality service while hunting or fishing with Alaska Elite Outfitters. From the fishing camps on the Nushagak River to the hunting camps on the upper Mulchatna river we have excellent facilities and transportation to them.
Spring Brown Bear
We start off the year in April getting ready for the upcoming Alaska Brown Bear season. Where we run snow-machine/ snow-shoe hunts in April. Then in May after Ice out we go after the Brown Bear with the use of jet boats. Traveling the entire river system from the mouth of the Nushagak to the mountains in the upper Mulchatna river looking sign.
Starting around mid June the King Salmon start entering the Nushagak on there spawning journey. For that reason we start our King fishing season on the 15th of June at our camp at the mouth of the Iowithla River. Which is located just above the tide waters of the Nushagak River. The Kings run for approximately 30 days which brings us to the middle of July about the 15th.
July 25th marks the beginning of the Silver Salmon (COHO) Season. The Silvers will run all the way through the Moose Season almost ever year. As a result we stop taking trips of silver fishermen on Aug 20th when the Alaska Brown Bear Season opens.
Alaska Brown Bear
Brown Bear season starts Aug 20th along with the Resident Moose season. Since the Silver Salmon are in the heaviest at this time the Brown Bears are feeding heavily on them. And if there’s a good berry crop they are hitting the hills hard as well. Hunting fishing holes, electronic calling and berry fields are some of the favorite tactics of A.E.O for hunting these fall Brown Bears.
Alaska Trophy Moose
Moose season opens for non-residents in unit 17 on September 5th and runs through Sept 15th. With only a 11 day season we have only 1 non-resident moose hunt. There are 75 non resident permits give out for the 2 mile corridor area along the Nushagak, Mulchatna, King Salmon Nuyakuk rivers and other upper rivers of that drainage. We have never sold out of these permits to date.
