Fish The Nush: Alaska Fishing Blog

The 5 Best Alaska Salmon Recipes (Part 2)

Last month we led off our two-part “Best Alaska 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.

The 5 Best Salmon Recipes (Part 1)

Most of our anglers leave the Nushagak River with enough packaged salmon to feed their family and friends lots of great table fare for the year. What are you going to do with all that frozen salmon? It’s common knowledge that salmon can last anywhere from 4-8 months in a freezer, depending on temperatures and quality packaging—something we excel at Nushagak River Adventures.

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.

Breathtaking Wildlife on the Nushagak River

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.
