Traveling to the Nushagak River- Dillingham, Alaska

The Nushagak River is unique with it’s large number of fish, but many believe the numbers are due to the fact that much of the Nushagak and it’s tributaries lie in the Alaskan Bush. With no downward pressures of man’s footprint, these fish exist the way they have for thousands of years. Often times, travel to the Alaskan Bush might involve numerous connecting flights from Anchorage, but lucky for us, travel to this part of the Alaskan Bush is very easily accessible from Anchorage.
