Alaska trophy fishing Safaris is a fish camp lodge along the banks of the Mulchantna River. The Mulchantna River is a 250 mile long tributary of Nushagak River and Drainage System. The Nushagak is renowned for its annual King Salmon run and many of those Salmon head up the Mulchantna River too.

This is a family run, fishing adventure camp. The benefit of enjoying your fishing adventure with Alaska trophy fishing Safaris is two-fold. First, the location is prime for Salmon fishing. Second, the area is limited by permit to how many fishermen can fish in the area. Alaska trophy fishing Safaris has a special permit so, besides your camp mates, you will likely not see another fisherman.

Expect to lodge in Alaskan Wall Tents. The tents are set up for double occupancy and come with a wood floor and heaters. It is a rustic setting, but the staff here is amazing. The food is five-star quality, and there is plenty of attention. The guide to guest ratio is 2:1. Overall, expect a comfort stay with excellent service and a lot of prime fishing. This is an all-inclusive lodge, and they mean all inclusive.

Fishing with the Alaska Trophy Fishing Safaris

This camp also has a very short fishing season. It runs July 1 - August 30. Those are the peak ranges for many salmon species. There is plenty of good fishing from May - July, but the fact that owner John Carlin only sets aside specific dates for fishing says a lot about his commitment to his guests. Expect to fish the peak of each Salmon species so that your chances of landing a trophy fish are better. There is more to fish here than just Salmon. They fish four species of Salmon and a host of other freshwater fighters, such as Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling and Arctic Char.

Trophy Fish at Alaska Trophy Fishing Safaris

The king salmon, here, range from 20-60 pounds. They peak in the Mulchatna River during the month of July. They overlap with the Sockeye, or Red Salmon, which peak from mid-July through the end of July. Sockeye salmon are smaller, 15-27 pounds, but they are the best salmon to eat. The Calico salmon, which are also called Dog or Chum Salmon are also fun to fish. They have an average weight range of 8-18 pounds and their season peaks during the first half of July. The Silver Salmon hit the rivers in August. Other fish that are fun to fish for are the Arctic Grayling. These are beautiful fish that are small. They weigh 1-3 pounds, and they are serious teasers. They will swim up to your fly and just look at you. They get into your head, but they are freaking fun to fish. The Dolly Varden Char, weigh 2-8 pounds are often mistaken for a Trout. It is totally a good time fishing for Dolly's.

If you have fishing on your mind, this is a great camp to work out your fishing dreams. The Alaska Fishing Safaris is a prime-focused fishing camp. The staff here is amazing, and there is just tons of salmon available in the rivers.
