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.

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.

The 5 Best Salmon Recipes (Part 2)

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.

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.

2018 Nushagak River Fish Counts

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.
