The Nushagak River is home to the world’s largest run of wild Chinook salmon. We also see an enormous run of silvers with little to no fishing pressure.

and we are on target to repeat that for 2019!

Nushagak River Adventures Lodge is pleased to report that our 2018 guests limited out 100% of the time for both the king and silver seasons! Now we have begun the 2019 season. Our main lodge rebuild has just been unveiled. Check in for our in season 2019 Nushagak fishing report newly added to the site.

Client Testimonials

“Had a great time fishing the Nush. Guides are outstanding and the service staff very helpful. Beds are very comfortable and hot showers! Going back in June. Can hardly wait.”

David, (Oregon)

“Fishing was great, the staff was very attentive and the location was truly spectacular—it’s all what you would want for a fly-in trip”

Marc, (California)

“As the author of two articles in Fish Alaska magazine about fishing in Alaska over the last 22 years, it is worth pointing out that they were both stories about experiences on the Nushagak River at Nushagak River Adventures Lodge (FishTheNush.com). I was there with family but the guides made our experiences worth writing about. I will return this year with a lifetime friend that wants to experience Alaska fishing at it’s best. I already know that he won’t be disappointed.”

“The past four summers I, along with different groups of friends and family, have fished at the Nushagak River Adventures Lodge. This river is an incredible hidden secret for catching large king salmon sometimes up to six per fisherman each day on a good day. Last summer the camp changed ownership and an incredible transformation occurred with new modern facilities and more importantly first class boats, guides and gear which dramatically improves a fisherman’s chance of landing many big Kings. This camp in remote Alaska has to be on the bucket list for those who are serious fisherman. There has not been a trip where I did not bring home a large cooler of fish. Because of its remote location, I would suggest the client be in reasonably good health. I have had a great time there and would be happy to answer questions.”

Ed Gerrish, M.D.

“Five stars? I’d give them six if I could. We’ve fished the Nush before, but we were sleeping in tents. Here they have warm, dry, cabins with electricity and heaters. Plus hot showers and flush toilets.

The silver fishing was EPIC. We fished with Albert. We limited out everyday. Even if you’re not an accomplished fisherman/fisherwoman, these guys will help you/show you how to catch fish. Our schedule was a delicious breakfast every morning, in the boats around 8:45, epic fishing shortly after. Around 11:30 we’d head in for a hot lunch, then back for more fishing. Dinner was preceded by appetizers and followed by an even more delicious dessert.

It was a great time, and we’re already planning our return.”

“My son, grandkids and I are eagerly looking forward to the new experience of coho fishing with you in August. I appreciate you recommending Albert to us as a guide. We had a chance to chat with him last June and really clicked with him. We also enjoy the fellow Oregonian, Ron.

Last year we talked Prosper Boisvert, an Alberta resident and our next-door neighbor during the winter months in Indio, CA, into coming with us to The Nush. He and his lovely wife flew to Alaska a week early and toured out of Anchorage. They fell in love with Alaska. They texted back and forth each day we were fishing. The day you gave me those lovely gloves to get my hands warm, Prosper texted Nancy, ‘Next time I have to bring waterproof gloves.’ She immediately responded. ‘What do you mean next time?’ We had a good laugh. He had a smile on his face the whole time he was with us—like kid in a candy shop. He’s already committed to join us for Kings in 2020!

By the way, Jean Moore has been a delight to deal with. You’re building a good thing with Fish the Nush.”
