The Kanektok River is an incredibly productive fishery and folks who know call it a ‘fish factory.‘ Most of our guests like catching a variety of fish species – all season long we have trout, dolly varden and grayling available, and various salmon species as well. King salmon are available from the third week of June through end middle of July, and silver salmon are a target from late July through the end of August.

No matter your background, we’re pretty sure you’ll have a blast. You’ll be fishing within eight miles of the saltwater, so the fish are bright, fresh and VERY aggressive. You’ll be in for a battle, and they are jumpers.

Flyout Fishing Lodge on the Kanektok River in Western Alaska

Some of the best King Salmon fishing in the world!

When the Kings are running up the Kanektok River, fly fishing is incredible. They’ll CRUSH swung flies (bring your spey rod if you have one, but it isn’t necessary). These monsters are hot, and it’s a different experience than what you’ll get in other rivers where you use upriver nymphing techniques.

Go in July for the Salmon Grand Slam!

If you go in late July, you’ll have a good chance at the Salmon Grand Slam – all five species of Pacific salmon, all caught on flies, all on the same day.

Both salmon and trout fishing can be done directly from the boat. For salmon, you will anchor up and swing flies, back troll plugs. When you’re after rainbows, you’ll fish ‘drift boat style’ being rowed by your guide. This is a great way to cover water. Fishing from the boat is fun, but wading gravel bars and side-channels is awesome as well.

This flyout Kanektok River fishing lodge offers spectacular Rainbow Trout fishing.

The Rainbow trout fishing can be absolutely amazing!

The Rainbow trout in the Kanektok River are big, and they hammer the flesh, egg, sculpin and leech patterns!  You can even ‘mouse’ for them with giant dry flies that imitate mice and voles. If you like to have fun, and who doesn’t, mousing should be on your short list.
