Frigate Adventure Travel offers Alaska fishing & lodging packages out of the town of King Salmon in Southwest Alaska. The lodge is just minutes from the King Salmon Airport which allows them to offer daily guided fly-outs out of King Salmon which gives guests access to world-class fishing in beautiful, pristine locations within the Bristol Bay Watershed....which offers some of the best freshwater fishing in Alaska.

It is pretty easy to get here. A simple 300-air-mile hop in a small plane is all that is needed. From Anchorage, you fly to King Salmon. Most guests stay at King Salmon Lodge which houses 18 guests rooms all with private baths and sitting areas to relax during your downtime. Frigate is a four-guide outfit with a focus on quality fishing. The overall process is easy, and the plane ride from Anchorage is short. The guides bring homemade lunch with them and water as well as ice for the fish. Expect professional, knowledgeable & experienced guides to be cared for during your fishing day.

The Fishing

Frigate Adventure Travel primary fly-out fishing options are the Nushagak River, the Naknek River, and the waters within Katmai National Park and Preserve, Brook Falls, and Becharof Wildlife Refuge. Their season starts in May and stretches into October. They focus on King Salmon, Silver Salmon, and Sockeye well as Trophy Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Arctic Grayling, and Northern Pike.

June is the month to visit if you want to target King Salmon, Trophy Rainbows, Dolly Varden, Arctic Char, Lake Trout, and Northern Pike. The ice breakup occurs in mid-may, and the Rainbows appear with a voracious appetite. Fishing the lakes rather than the rivers can be a huge advantage. As the Kings enter the rivers, the focus changes, and the big Chrome-bright Kings become the focus. In July, we add Sockeye Salmon and Chum Salmon to the mix as the fish runs begin to vary. The kings fade, and the Sockeye become overwhelming present while the year-round targets remain the big Rainbows and Char. August is the time of year when the Sockeye migration reaches the smaller tributaries. It is also a natural signal for the Brown Bears to begin to fish. The focus for August shifts later in the month to Silver Salmon while the big Trophy Trout and Char settle in to feed on the roe and dead Salmon. September is the month when the Salmon populations crash. The Silvers remain a top focus, but the trophy Trout and Char close the gap. The opportunities to target 30” Rainbows is impressive. October is the end of the Salmon, and while there may still be Sockeye in the streams, the focus is on the end of year change and the trophy Arctic Char and wild Trout.

The beautiful thing about fishing with Frigate Adventure Travel is that each of the destinations offers something unique. The four guides who make up this business, know how to showcase those unique traits so as you fish, you take in the beauty that creates such fantastic fishing opportunities.
