Sockeye Salmon – June 27th through October The Kvichak River not only produces the largest Sockeye run in Alaska, but the largest salmon run in the world. Sockeye Salmon can be caught on both fly and spin gear and the fish weight averages around 5 – 10 pounds. A fisherman can view pools of thousands of fish which is an incredible sight to see, but even more exhilarating is having one of these fish on the other end of your line! You’ll be sure to take some fillets home of this great tasting fish. This is also a good time to fish for Northern Pike and Rainbow Trout as well as other species.
King Salmon – June 18th through July 7th We fish the most productive and largest King Salmon run in the world and there is potential to have 10 – 20 fish days. Kings can be taken home on a limited basis as well as any of the salmon we catch. The average size fish is 20 – 30 pounds and they are fresh in from the ocean. We start to catch kings at King Camp around June 18th and this is also an excellent time for Northern Pike and spring Rainbow Trout fishing.
Silver Salmon – July 24th through October We’ve got some great locations to fish for Silver’s, which are a very acrobatic and aggressive fish that strike hard. Anglers are very pleased with this fish as they are very sporting and exciting to bring in. A Silver weighs around 9 – 20 pounds and is excellent eating- you’ll want to fit in few of these fillets in your cooler to go home. The season dates work very well for fall fishing for Rainbow Trout, Northern Pike, Grayling and Sockeye Salmon.
Chum Salmon – July 15th through September Anglers can also have opportunities to catch Chum Salmon, especially on the overnight rafting trips. These are a beautiful addition to the fish species we focus on and the average weight is 7-15 pounds. Chum strike aggressively and are a pleasure and challenge to catch.
Northern Pike – June through September Northern Pike are definitely here and impressive numbers and size. We take care to assist an angler, if desired, in catching and reeling in a 40+ inch Northern Pike. Anglers can cast both with a fly rod or spin tackle as we have great success with either method. Fishing is done by either wading through grassy flats or from the boat or a combination of both. Sight casting can also be done here which is a real pleasure and we’ve found frog and mouse patterns to work incredibly well in our areas.
Lake Clark and it’s tributaries are over 60 miles of cool clear water and the lake has depths of up to 900 feet and is the 2nd deepest lake in Alaska. It is unusual to have a lake of this size provide such remarkable high quality fishing, but Lake Clark is an exception. Numerous rivers pour fresh oxygenated water into the lake and combine with a rich nutrient base that help the fish grow impressively large. In the world of fishing this is an ideal habitat for Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Char and Arctic Grayling.
Lake Trout & Char – June through September Lake Trout & Arctic Char both present some great fishing opportunities in this region, with ideal dates for fishing from June – October. We fish by either trolling with the boat or casting from shore and have reeled in sizable fish both ways. Trolling for Lake Trout after dinner at the lodge is a perfect way to finish off the evening. There is also a variety of Char found in this part of Alaska, named Dolly Varden, that are a beautiful fish to catch. Char and Trout live in most all of the lakes we fish and can grow in excess of 30 inches.
Our guides are true professionals and skilled in all fishing methods. We are happy to show you new techniques to further your personal goals as a fishermen or to help the beginner learn the art of fishing. Our guides also know the importance of assisting you in catching that monster fish, such as a huge Northern Pike. Shore lunches are one of our guides’ specialties and they are famous for creating delicious lake and stream side lunches, often prepared with a small fire to enjoy some freshly caught fish. You can be sure your guide will get plenty of photos of you and your prized catches throughout the day as well.
Rainbow Trout – June 10 through October 10
Fishing Rainbow Trout is especially good in June through mid July and in late August through October. Alaska’s top Rainbow Trout come from our watershed, including 15 pound and 30 inch class fish with various streams peaking at different times of the season. The streams within Katmai National Park will produce a dozen plus fish per person in a day. July is an excellent time for fly fishermen to enjoy the best Rainbow Trout fishing in the world as far as numbers go and novice and expert alike will have a blast. We do have a specialty with a few rivers for spring Rainbow that can be best right at the last two weeks of June and first week of July. These are best accessed with one of our fishing rafts with a casting platform.
We have more than 16 rivers we fish for Rainbow Trout – some are good for a half day of fishing and some are good for overnight and rafting trips. We provide our clients with the highest quality fishing experience possible and focus on the rivers that present the best Rainbow fishing. The Largest Rainbows are targeted in dates from September into early October. This time of year is not for the faint at heart as the weather does get chillier and the wind can be a bit stronger. For those dedicated fishermen, this time of year presents the trophy Rainbows everyone dreams of the fishing can be phenomenal.
Grayling – June through September The Grayling’s diet and habits vary through the season, but on any of the dates you could choose to visit the lodge the Grayling fishing will always be good. They love to bunch up in clear pools and feed on insects and our dry flies provide us with unbelievable fishing in those moments.
We have quality equipment at no additional charge and our guides will teach you the art of fly fishing.If you have never fished with a fly rod or need brushing up, it is no problem. Grayling is the perfect species to learn or practice on as you can see the fish in the water and cast your dry fly just up steam. Casting is not a problem as you only have to cast a few feet in front of you and the fish are fairly eager in taking a variety of flies. Grayling is the perfect specie to practice on just before your more technical day of Rainbow Trout fishing.
When to Come
June Fishing After a long winter the fish are ready to bite and are awaiting the millions of salmon fry headed to the ocean. The following fish take almost any fly: Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Grayling, Lake Trout, Dolly Varden, and Northern Pike. June is a dry fly paradise. Red salmon and King Salmon are available toward the end of this month.
July Fishing This is the best month for the King and Sockeye Salmon run. Dry fly fishing is still excellent for Rainbow Trout, Grayling, Arctic Char, and Northern Pike. Pink Salmon becomes available during this month as well as salt water species such as Halibut and Rockfish.
August & September Fishing Salmon are in full spawning activity and the Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, and Arctic Char follow them feeding on the salmon eggs. This makes for easy fishing. The Silver Salmon are extremely acrobatic. In September, fish need to feed heavy for the coming winter – Rainbow Trout and other species are at their largest, making this an awesome time to collect trophy fish of any type such as a 15 pound Rainbow, which is not uncommon.
