Alaska Rainbow Trout Fishing Best months: June through October
Alaskan rainbow trout are very prevalent in the upper Nushagak River where they are feasting on the salmon roe. Fly fishing for native & wild trout may not get any better and there is very little pressure on this fishery. Fall time is the best time to catch these beautiful fish after they fatten up on salmon flesh and eggs but they are available all summer.
Most commonly used flies are salmon flesh, eggs, sculpins & leeches. Trout average over 18 inches and some grow to over 30 inches in various rivers throughout Bristol Bay. We also partner with trophy rainbow lodges on other rivers.
