Alaska Silver Salmon Fishing on the Nushagak River

Silver Salmon fishing trip on the Nushagak River in Bristol Bay Alaska is nothing less than spectacular. These both acrobatic and aerial Silver Salmon (Coho) leap out of the water consistently making catching them a thrill on either fly rods or spinning gear. Located on Nushagak River in the Bristol Bay area our Alaska fishing lodge is in the prime location to get your limit of silvers. Our fishing guides take fishermen to where the Silver Salmon are coming up the Nushagak the heaviest.

Bristol Bay Silver Salmon Fishing

The Nushagak River has all five species of salmon (Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Chum and Pinks) and of course the mighty Silver Salmon. Beginning in late July then ending in early September over 100,000 silvers head up the river to their spawning grounds.  Nearly 112,000 Silver Salmon went through the Alaska Fish & Game(ADFG) counter in 2018, and ADFG expects even larger runs for 2019. A fisherman is allowed to keep five Silver Salmon per day with 10 Silvers in possession.

Nushagak River Lodging

In addition to having some of the most comfortable accommodations on the Nushagak river; Nushagak Paradise lodge is also right on the River 20 miles below the village of Ekwok close to the tide waters. Wooden cabins, kitchen, and yurts are right next to the lodge, steam bath, showers, and also restrooms.  Our location is very convenient for our guest because it sits on the bluff overlooking the Nushagak river as well as giving us access to the landing strip and float planes access.
