The Nushagak River (Nush) is the river that the most King Salmon and Sockeye Salmon use to migrate to spawning grounds.

You find the lodge just below the Kokwok River which is one of the main tributaries for the Nush. To put the fishing into perspective, the annual run of King Salmon on the Nush is in excess of 100,000 fish. The average run for Silver Salmon on the Nush is in excess of 500,000 fish. In addition to the Kings and Silvers, there are millions of Sockeye (red) Salmon, and feisty Chum Salmon too.

Fishing for Kings is one of the biggest draws for the Nush. The kings here weigh 10-50 pound and on average come in the 22 pound range. There are opportunities for big fish in the 80-100 pound range.

Fishing for Silvers is a true sportsmen's adventure. The silvers are tenacious and they put on a display that is addicting. Silvers weigh in the 8-13 pound range with opportunities to battle fish near the 20-pound range. Lunch is at the lodge so you fish for about four hours had back to the lodge have lunch and then fish until dinner time at 7pm. Boats leave the dock at 8 am.

The lodge has outstanding fishing guides that help you stay on top of where the fish are located. In amid the Salmon are big Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. If you limit out on Silvers or Kings you can do the catch-and-release or target Rainbows, Dolly Varden, or Char.

If you want to fish for Salmon in a place that offers non-stop action, then the Nushagak River Fishing Lodge is a good choice.
