The Three Main Areas for a successful Salmon fishing holiday
Alaska Fly Fishing trips for Salmon & Trout fall into three main areas. The first and most well-known is Bristol Bay. Most of Bristol Bays rivers originate among the granite peaks of the Aleutian Range. They fall within the protection of the world-famous Katmai National park. These rivers are famous among fly fishing anglers all over the world. Any Salmon river Alaska holds is going to offer an amazing Alaska fishing experience.
The list of waterways includes Brooks River, Moraine Creek, Lower Talarik Creek, Kulik, Idavain and Copper River. Also included is the Gibraltar, Little Ku, Battle Creek, Agulawok River, Agulukpak River, Naknek River, Kvichak River, and Alagnak River.
Many of our lodges that fall within this region are fly-out lodges. Each day you will depart for a day of fishing with your guides. This region is considered the best for a good all-round mixture of Salmon species. With Rainbows, Char, and Dollies all eager to eat your flies.
The region of Southwest Alaska is home to some fantastic big river systems. Such as the Kanetok River, Goodnews River, Arolik River, Aniak River, and Kisaralik River. Unlike the small streams of Bristol Bay, a fly fisher can fly in during the day. Then be back at the Alaska fly fishing lodge for a gourmet dinner in the evening. These are also incredible boating rivers. This region is probably the best region for catching King Salmon on the fly. Unlike the other major King salmon rivers which are huge, these rivers are of a more manageable size. Containing gravel bottoms, and a moderate to swift flow, perfect for swing flies right on the bottom.
South-central Alaska is most famous for the Kenai Peninsula and Kenai River. However, as this is the most populated area in Alaska, this also means this large river system gets heavily fished. Mainly by locals just looking to fill their freezers up with Salmon. Customers don’t tend to return here as there are very few fly-only fishing spots.
