The Nushagak River, or Nush as it is known to those who fish here, is located in the Southwest of Alaska. The river gets its start in the beautiful Alaska Range. It meanders for approximately 280 miles where it dumps its glacier meltwaters into the Nushagak Bay.
The location and length of the Nush make it one of the most important rivers for Salmon in Alaska, which is a fish that drives many of the life cycles of species in Alaska.
Fishing the Nushagak
The King Salmon make an appearance from mid-late May and usually run into mid-July. June being the best month for fishing for King on the Nush.
Sockeye Salmon enter the river corridor around the beginning of June, and their run stretches through July and in some years into August.
Silver Salmon show up in early July and stay through the month of August, sometimes into September.
Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden are available are available year round. Their numbers increase as the Salmon enter the river so expect to fish for bigger and more Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden during the peak run times for the Salmon.
This is a deep and fast river. Fishing is usually by shore casting or drift boats. The river is suitable for fly fishing and spin casting. This is a river that is made famous by its amazing run of King Salmon. In some circles, this river is referred to as the King Salmon River. Expect to find pockets of fishermen associated with a lodge when you fish here. Many lodged along the river are temporary and are thus comprised of tent cabins. This is out of respect for the Native Population and the love of the river. No permanent structures are allowed. Expect to find comfortable tent cabins, good food, and access to the an amazing amount of fish.
