2019 Nushagak River Special
For the limited days of June 17-July 7, 2019, we are offering special pricing on fishing the best king salmon fishery in Alaska! For most anglers interested in fishing the Nushagak, they have traditionally had two options: Stay in a riverside tent camp, or stay at a fly-out lodge. Both options typically require anglers to commit to at least three, but typically more days of fishing. There are some fantastic tent camps on the Nushagak and we fish around many of them, but at the end of the day, you are still sleeping in a tent. Traditional fly out lodges are wonderful, and because of the services they offer, they are very expensive.
We are able to offer a very unique product this season on the Nushagak where anglers can fish as little as two days, have one nights accommodations in a beautiful lodge and enjoy a scenic flight over Kvichak Bay while looking at feeding Beluga Whales.
The Nushagak is expecting over 100,000 chinook escaping into the river and we’re going to be there targeting those fish just out of the saltwater.
With our two brand new 21’ Willie Raptor boats outfitted with 200 hp motors and 9.9 hp kicker motors, you will be in one most comfortable seats on the river. The open floor plan allows plenty of space to fight the fish of your dreams.. Whether pulling plugs or spinners with bait or swinging flies with two handed rods, we’ll help you catch King Salmon over and over. Our boats average 10-30 hook ups per day, with exceptional days occurring where you lose track of the numbers and just remember the laughs.. We’ll finely fillet your fish and vacuum pack, and freeze them so you can reminisce all winter long.
