Alaska King Salmon Fishing the Nushagak River
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 is home to the best; also, the biggest King Salmon runs in Alaska, with over 100,000 Kings returning annually to spawn. Furthermore, during June and July, it is not uncommon to catch 10-30 Kings per day during the run’s peak weeks. Landing these aggressive 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.
Fly Fishing Nushagak River
Fly fishing Alaska King Salmon on the Nushagak 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.
Bristol Bay Kings
South Western Alaska and the Bristol Bay area have the largest populations of 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 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 river and gives us access to the landing strip and floatplanes access.
King Fishing Packages
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.
