The Alagnak River in Alaska is known as one of the best salmon fisheries in the Bristol Bay Region.
The Alagnak River’s headwaters are in the Aleutian Range, and it is unbounded by dams all the way to Bristol Bay. The river has prime spawning gravel to boast healthy strong runs of all five species of Pacific Salmon! The fishing here is concentrated around the tide water, which offers the best possible fishing for fresh hard fighting salmon. The closer the salmon are to the salt water the better tasting and more aggressive they will be. The strategic location of this lodge allows fishing right out the front door. With each tide, fresh salmon ride in on the high water and enter the river, where they begin their journey to the spawning grounds. You will be there to intercept them, with your guide assisting and improving your angling technique to get into the fish!
This Alagnak fishing lodge offers comfortable accommodations, and even in this remote setting you will feel at home. The lodge can house up to 20 anglers, and sits high on a bluff overlooking the river. The boats and dock just down the steps and always ready to go out for another fishing session.
Alagnak River Fly Fishing for Salmon is Amazing!
Fishing can be done with either fly or spin gear depending on angler preference as well as water conditions and fishing area. With either technique you choose you are sure to get into salmon while fishing the world famous Alagnak River. Fishing the lower and middle sections of the river offers a steady supply of fish. The upper sections that braid out can offer excellent sight fishing, whereas the lower river you will often be fishing the deeper runs that hold fish as they stage before swimming further up river.
For most of July and August the Alagnak River sees a good overlap in the different salmon species. Most dates in the season offer 2-3 species of salmon available to the angler offering plenty of variety in the fishing and techniques. Most fishing will be done 10-15 minute boat ride up or down river from the lodge.
