Alaska is a land of superlatives. Among the sportsman’s wonderland found throughout its nearly 98 million acres, one river reigns supreme in the annals of Chinook angling. Every year fishermen from far and wide descend upon the burly brute looking to capture its mighty king salmon. That river is the Nushagak.
If you want to be a salmon fishing guide in Oregon, Washington, California or Idaho, you’d better think long and hard about taking a crack at working for a salmon camp deep in the Alaskan bush.
