Nushagak River Adventures has quickly emerged as one of the premier Alaska fishing resorts thanks to our prime location, newly-built riverside cabins, and first-class salmon fishing guides. Whether you’re a family full of seasoned anglers or a group of beginners hoping to learn some tricks of the trade in The Last Frontier, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for here on the Nushagak River.
While visiting anglers choose Nushagak River Adventures for our seclusion and world-class salmon fishing in Alaska, many are genuinely curious about the history of this once Yup'ik-inhabited wilderness. Before Alaska fishing camps slowly began to pop up along the peaceful Nushagak River, the nearby communities of Nushagak and Portage Creek were small, thriving villages.
Last month we led off our two-part “Best Salmon Recipes” blog with delicious blackened salmon tacos and a healthy BBQ salmon salad, both of which were created by our talented Executive Chef Christopher Lee. Because the team here at Nushagak River Adventures uses some of the best packaging equipment in the world, you’ll be returning home with several boxes of perfectly-filleted frozen salmon. And as we stated last month, Lee’s been kind enough to share five of his best salmon recipes.
Most of our anglers leave the Nushagak River with enough packaged salmon to feed a small village. What are you going to do with all that frozen salmon? It’s common knowledge that frozen salmon can last anywhere from 2-4 months in a freezer, depending on temperatures, packaging, and defrosting methods. Our team uses the best packaging equipment, which successfully elongates the freezing period.
Every year the Alaska Department of Fish and Game compiles Nushagak River fish counts, specifically for our five salmon species. Nushagak River Adventures sits on the world’s largest king salmon run, and the 2018 data proves it. 2018 ended up being a phenomenal year as we saw hundreds of thousands more salmon in the Nushagak River than in 2017. We’re so proud to be one of few Alaska salmon fishing lodges on the Nushagak! Here is some of the data from this year’s report.
As the Alaska fishing season sadly wraps up here on the Nushagak River, it’s time to start thinking about your next week-long excursion at our Nushagak River Adventures. Autumn has officially arrived here in peaceful Southwest Alaska as our trees have begun changing color. It may not seem like it at the moment, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
We’re in the middle of the silver salmon and rainbow trout season here on the Nushagak River in beautiful southwestern Alaska. The spawning silvers are as feisty as ever, and the colorful rainbows are growing by the hour as they feed on salmon roe. Fish the Nush has some beautiful weather headed our way this fall with higher than average temperatures, according to the NOAA.
