The Nushagak River is host to one of the largest populations of returning Salmon in all of Alaska. Kings also known as Chinook Salmon, Silvers also known as Coho Salmon, Chum and Sockeye provide Alaska King Salmon Adventures and the handful of residents that live here with the very best fishing of this type in the world.
The Nushagak River winds itself out of the Central Alaska Range and at close to 300 miles in length and full of countless tributaries, the Salmon habitat on the Nushagak River might be as good as their is in the world. The Nushagak River eventually joins the Wood River before entering Nushagak Bay which is merely an inlet for Bristol Bay. Alaska King Salmon Adventures Lodge Camp sits at river mile 45 about 10 miles above tide water at Portage Creek.
Access to the region and the AKSA camp comes via Dillingham, Alaska which is located by just a 50 minute flight from Anchorage. From Dillingham Airport a beautiful 15 minute float plane flight with Freshwater Air puts you right on the steps of the Alaska King Salmon Adventures lodge camp.
