Guests sleep in comfortable, insulated cabins with real beds & quality mattresses that are not a common sight in a remote location like this. Dining is another highlight - they pride themselves on providing guests with a 5-Star dining experience from start to finish. With the rebuilt lodge, excellent dining & experienced fishing guides Nushagak River Adventures is one of the premier fishing options on the Nushagak River.

Fishing the Nushagak River

The fishing season here ranges from May through the end of October. The weather in Alaska is unpredictable, and while summer storms crop up, the beginning of May and October are the two months where you are more likely to encounter rain and even snow. If you are looking for the big fish then, June-July is the prime season for King Salmon. A good sized King weighs 40-50 pounds. The record is 126 pounds. Average size range from 20-40 pounds. The Red Salmon season and the King Salmon season parallel each other. What the Reds lack in size they make up for in sheer numbers. Millions of them swim upstream in thick schools. Usually around the beginning of July the Silvers are heading past the lodge. Silvers are fighters and for people who love to play fish, you cannot beat the adventure on which a Silver Salmon will take you. They hit a fly with enough force to startle you. Then they begin to leap out of the water. They are smart too. They have a few tricks for breaking line.
