Nushagak Fishing Report
Nushagak River, Alaska
Nushagak Fishing Report provided by the team at Nushagak River Adventures Lodge.
Our season has started strong! Check back for regular reports and updates from our little slice of heaven in Bristol, Bay Alaska where the king salmon fishing and silver salmon fishing are out of this world! Our 2019 King Forecast was solid and we are excited to see it unfold as we bring you our Nushagak Fishing Report.
King fishing on the Nushagak River in Alaska typically starts around the middle of June and runs through the end of July with the peak of the season being the last week of June through the first two weeks of July. After that we tend to see bigger kings milling around as they start to adopt their spawning colors.
Silver fishing picks up on the Nushagak River at the beginning of August and goes strong into the third week when we close up camp for the summer. The silver action is acrobatic and out of this world. Check back for more fishing reports and updates throughout the season. We are just getting started!
June 2019 Alaska Fishing Report
Happy Solstice! 12-year-old Brady, from Washington state, was awarded the first ever 40-INCH CLUB pin yesterday. Brady hooked into a 40 1/4-inch black mouth, set the hook, and was on for the ride of a lifetime. This moment was proudly witnessed by his father Jason Blum, uncle Eric Thorburn, and grandfather David Thorburn. They were fishing with our guide Ron Logan of Portland Oregon who shared that David also landed a 42-Inch king, but released it since he had already tagged one. Brady caught a dozen fish or more before tagging this beauty. A successful outdoorsman at his young age, Brady has already been dubbed the “Kid Reporter” for Fish Alaska magazine when his first article was published in March of 2018. Albert Kutzkey, our lead guide presented the pin to Brady who was radiating joy. Congratulations to Brady. It has been an exciting first week of the 2019 season!
