Plan Your All Inclusive Trip

This full service fishing lodge trip includes roundtrip airfare from either Dillingham or King Salmon (depending on what part of the season). You will receive comfortable lodging, guided fishing, quality fishing equipment, and superb meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

Fish the first day you arrive. As soon as we get you settled and through the orientation we will get you out on the water. For the next three days you fish from morning until just before dinner when appetizers will be served. After dinner guests can relax back at the lodge or choose to DIY fish along the river bank in front of the lodge. On the fifth day you depart the lodge in the morning.

Guests take home an airline approved box filled with their catch vacuum sealed, solidly frozen for the trip home. You will also treasure a load of photos and memories you will never forget.

Come breathe the fresh clean air of remote Alaska and fish for salmon like you’ve never seen before!

Salmon fishing Alaska is unlike salmon fishing anywhere else. Over the last two years in Bristol Bay we have seen some records set for the number of sockeye salmon flooding the area. There is an abundance of this delicious and harvestable salmon. Sockeye salmon fishing can be a hoot as you learn this specialized technique for lining the hook into the salmon’s mouth. It’s the traditional way to fish for sockeye all over Alaska. Whether you have done it before or not we can have your group lined up on the beach casting to sockeye (red) salmon and having a blast.

King salmon fishing is what the Nushagak River has historically been known for, and although we are in a period of low abundance on kings, these last couple of seasons have still allowed us to harvest kings. As a lodge, we do that with a conservative approach as we aim to restore this fishery to its peak. The regulations for this year are not out yet, but whether the kings are for harvest or catch and release, there are plenty of sockeye to fill fish boxes, and the king fishing is still incredibly fun and memorable. We find that guests enjoy mixing it up and being able to fish for both kings and sockeye in that early season timeframe.

Coho season starts at the end of July and this is some of the salmon fishing Alaska is best known for. The reason is coho are pound for pound the heavy hitters with their aerial displays and thick meaty flesh. There are several prime season dates open to choose from still for 2023.
