Fishing with Beartracks Lodge on the Talachulitna River
The Fish of the Talachulitna River
If you want beautiful, large salmon, then you probably want to target the Kings. They show up on the Talachulitna River for a short three-week period that ranges from the third week of June until the middle of July. Expect 15-50-pound fish.
The Sockeye Salmon show up by the boatload. Millions of them show up and turn the water red. The Sockeye are the best eating of all five of the Salmon species. The season of the Sockeye is from last week of July until the second week of August.
The Silver Salmon show up for the entire month of August. Silver are the fighters, and if you want to square off with a champ, this is the fish.
Rainbows are always present. Expect Rainbow Trout from 1-6 pounds with plenty of fight. Rainbows are catch and release only.
Arctic Grayling are great eating too. These small fish are fun to target but don't be surprised if you find them a challenge. Expect Grayling in the 1-2 pound range.
The Beartracks Lodge is an excellent place to fish.
