Kingfishers’ professional guides will help you land numerous salmon each day. We have been fishing the Nushagak River since 1998 and our knowledge of the run will be evident by the bend in your rod.
About What We Use
If you like pulling plugs we use a variety such as Luhr Jensens Kwikfish in k-13 or k-15 sizes or Storms Wiggle Warts in various colors. If back bouncing bait is your choice then you may want to put a Beau Mac spinning Cheater in front of your bait. For many of our clients, they prefer to bobber dog eggs for an awesome day of fishing. In the evenings most people like to Fly Fish or Float Fish with Johns Jigs for our numerous amounts of acrobatic hard running Chum Salmon.
Typical Day At Camp
A typical day at the Alaska Kingfishers Camp starts with an 8:00 AM breakfast (coffee will be on by 6:00 AM), upon completion of breakfast we will board our 22ft. Alumaweld boats and hit the river.
We like to fish hard until about noon, at that time we can rendezvous back at the fishing camp for lunch or pick a nice spot on the river to take a break. After lunch, we continue to fish hard until dinner which is at 7:00 PM every evening. When we are finished with dinner and if you still have enough energy we have rods set up to fish from shore. This may seem like a fairly rigorous schedule, but we try to remain very flexible after all it is your Alaska fishing vacation. After 10:00 PM we are starting to think about sleep, but if you are so inclined you are welcome to stay up all night (as it does not get dark in the summertime) and catch salmon off the beach until it feels like your arms might fall off. As you can see we have designed our tent camp around the serious angler who is looking for the true Alaskan Fishing Camp Experience.
