Experiencing Fishing on the Nush
What the Nash offers fishermen is an insane amount of fishing opportunities. It is also a river that is not highly populated with fishing camps or lodges. That makes fishing here even better.
The Fish and The Trophies
The targets are kings from Mid-June through Mid July. There are stragglers that show up as late as August. The Sockeye Salmon are here in droves during July in the 10-15 pound range. Silvers hit the scene by August and then peak. Silvers are amazing fish to catch. You know when one strikes at it tries its best to rip the rod out of your hand. From that moment on they fight like crazy. Expect dynamic acrobatics and your heart rate to rise pretty quickly. The Tiger Salmon, also known as the Dog or Chum Salmon show up from August through September. Throughout the season, you have Rainbows, Grayling and Char to fish for too. The most interesting fish here may be the Northern Pike. These predators are lurkers, and they strike with force. Try a slow jig action using a dry mouse pattern over the weedy part of the river. Don't be surprised if all of a sudden something tries to rip your arm from its socket. The Northern Pike is fond of making meals out of small mammals, small fish, and even birds. Their mouth holds more than 700 sharp, pointy teeth, and they use them well.
