Dolly Varden Fly Fishing Holidays
Dolly Varden are often thought to be trout, but in fact they are from the Char family. These fish as juveniles spend their time in freshwater moving to the ocean when reaching adulthood. When in the saltwater, these Dolly Varden turn silver in colour, but when returning back to rivers to spawn, they turn greenish brown with light orange spots. Fly fishing anglers target these returning adults that come in both – to spawn and also feed on abundant Salmon eggs, as they provide some amazing sport.
If you are looking for a Fishing Lodge that puts you and the fishing first, then look no further. Goodnews River Lodge is the ONLY full service lodge on the entire river system. Experience the solitude and peaceful beauty of Alaska; it’s just you and the fish. No crowds, no flying to the “best” river. It’s all here on the Goodnews River.
Located on the Kanektok River, only 5.5 miles from its mouth is by all standards a remarkably diverse fishery. Perfectly suited to both single-hand and spey anglers, offering one of Alaska’s best opportunities to catch Salmon where high catch-rates and easy wading is the norm.
Rapids Camp sits right on the bank of the famous Naknek River and is just a 15 minute drive from the King Salmon airport. This is the most diverse and flexible lodge in Alaska, where you the customer, decides what to fish for in your itinerary each day. All five species of Salmon plus huge Rainbows makes this lodge very popular.
For an unparalleled fly out fishing experience, it has to be the legendary Bristol Bay Lodge, surrounded by pristine wilderness right in the heart of North America’s largest state park. If you are looking for a holiday to catch more species than you can handle, this is definitely the destination for you.
