Nushagak River King Salmon
Alaska Elite Outfitters (A.E.O) provides you the fantastic opportunity to fish on the famous Nushagak River for the most massive Alaska King Salmon (Chinook) run in the world. A known fact, the Nushagak River is home to the best; also, the biggest King Salmon runs in Alaska, with over 100,000 Alaska King Salmon returning annually to spawn. Furthermore, during June and July, it is not uncommon to catch 10-30 King Salmon per day during the run’s peak weeks. Landing these aggressive King Salmon is not only exciting but guaranteed to wear out your arm!
Alaska King Salmon are voracious feeders that strike a variety of lure presentations. We effectively utilize spin-n-glows with cured eggs and large lures tipped with herring. Not only do we drift and troll thru the King holes, but we also anchor up and use crankbaits. You can expect to use eight to nine-foot medium-heavy rods and reels with a 20 to 80-pound power pro fishing line.
Self Guided King Salmon Fishing Trips
Alaska Elite Outfitters offer self guided King Fishing trips as well as fully guided. On our self guided trips you will get the same treatment as fully guided just without the guide. You will have meals prepared for you as well as snacks and use of the same amenities as everyone else. We have mostly 18′ aluminum boats with Mercury 60/40 Jet motors on them so you don’t have to worry about hitting bottom and banging up props. If you have been fishing the Nushagak before it will be a great time for you and your freinds.
Fly Fishing Nushagak River King Salmon
Fly fishing Alaska King Salmon on the Nushagak River is a fantastic challenge. King Salmon generally runs the deeper channels as well as holes up to rest. So Fly rods (9-11 weight) with a fast sinking line and weighted flies are recommended to get down deep enough to fish them.
Alaska King Salmon In Bristol Bay
South Western Alaska and the Bristol Bay area have the largest populations of Alaska King Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Grayling, and Dolly Varden in Alaska and possibly the world, according to the Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADFG). King salmon fishers have two fish per day limit with 4 in their possession on the Nushagak river system.
Nushagak River Lodging
In addition to having some of the most comfortable Alaska King Salmon accommodations on the Nushagak River, Nushagak Paradise Lodge is also right on the River 20 miles below the village of Ekwok, close to the tidewaters. Wooden cabins, kitchen, and yurts are next to the lodge, steam baths, showers, and restrooms. Our location is convenient for our guests because it sits on the bluff overlooking the Nushagak river and gives us access to the landing strip and floatplanes access.
Nushagak River King Fishing Packages
Alaska King Salmon fishing packages are all-inclusive once you arrive in the main camp, 20 miles downriver from Ekwok, Alaska. In the field, we provide three meals a day for all our guests, including snacks. In addition to that, we set you up with all the gear, bait, freezer boxes as well as fish cleaning, and packaging for your fully guided fishing trip. If you would like to Fly-fish, you should bring your fly rods and gear. Please email Mike@alaskaeliteoutfitters.com or call Mike@218-434-0068 for more info on this.
