The Toman's King Camp sits along the banks of the Nushagak River. This is a quiet location for most of the year and then the salmon show up and the action gets insane. This is the river that sets the standard for all over Salmon fishing rivers the world over. The king salmon are large and plentiful, and they put up a fight as though they were Silver Salmon.
Guests are housed in double occupancy two wall tents or for single travelers, in single quarters. There is a main dining tent and a separate shower tent. Expect comfortable tents with outstanding food and even better fishing.
Fishing the Nushagak River with Bob Toman' King Camp
The Toman's King Camp offers an ideal location for fishermen who love to fish. The King Salmon here are amazing, and they are followed by Silver, Red, and Chum salmon too. In the mix are large Rainbows and the beautiful Dolly Varden. Kings are amazing fish to battle. Their size puts them on the top of the list, but the Kings in the Nush are feisty. Expect bent rods and hard strike when you fish for kings. In other places, the Kings seem tamer. They strike with a gentle nudge and then fight, not so here on the Nush.
Timing Your Visit
Toman's King Camp opens later than most other camps on the Nushagak River. They do so because they want their guests to experience the most optimum fishing possible. They open from the last week of June, through first week of August. Anytime during that time you will find a river full of Kings. Also, present will be the Red Salmon, which show up in July. The Silvers begin in late July and peak in August. The Rainbows are here all the time and the Dolly Vardens like to arrive mid-August. The Pink Salmon are also here, but they come only on the even number of years. They offer a fun and sporting fishing adventure.
The Bottom Line
Expect to find a well-run fish camp with clean tents and friendly staff. The guides are exceptional. They are willing to fish so long as the sun is up and June and July the sun is up for an amazing 20 hours every day. When the Kings are in the water, it is not uncommon to see all members on your boat with a king on the line. The fishing here is intense, and fishermen walk away from the experience counting the days when they can return. That is the charm of the Nushagak River and Bob Toman's King Camp is the setting from which your Alaska Fishing Adventure will come true.
