The Nushagak River, in Alaska’s Bristol Bay, 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 are usually the only lodge open during silver season on The Nush.
We are pleased to report our main lodge rebuild has been unveiled and the new bathhouse is erected. Our transformation is officially complete—from a fishing camp to a 5-star fishing lodge in the Bush. We truly have the nicest lodge on the river.
Nushagak River Adventures Lodge had our BEST SEASON YET in 2019! Read our blog to learn why this summer earned that moniker and be sure to check out our 2019 End of Season Video below.
Experience the best salmon fishing in Alaska on the Nushagak River in Bristol Bay. With an average of 100,000 kings a year, the Nushagak River has Alaska’s largest king salmon run!
Sleep in comfortable, insulated 12′ x 20′ cabins with real beds, quality mattresses and down pillows that provide first class comfort in our remote fishing camp.
We are extremely proud of the experience and professionalism of our fishing guides. They are some of the best in the business—fish catching machines who put your safety and enjoyment first.
Welcome to the Best Salmon Fishing in Alaska
Our superb location enables us to fish the lower Nushagak River in Bristol Bay where the best salmon fishing in Alaska occurs annually. We invite you and your guests to fish with our experienced guides for the salmon fishing trip of a lifetime!
“I love the smell of king salmon slime in the morning,” I proclaim to nobody in particular as we begin to fish. It was day two this past June on the Nushagak River and I was ready to agree with Pete von Jess that indeed, what they have here is a little slice of Heaven. An island roughly 35 miles up the 280-mile Nushagak River on its east channel serves as the foundation of the newly-rebuilt Nushagak River Adventures Lodge.
Our new main lodge is the perfect place to gather with friends and family for dining and visiting after a great day of fishing.
We invite you to stay and fish with us on the Nushagak River, where you’ll enjoy a 5-star dining experience from start to finish.
