The Naknek River - Named Alaska's #1 Trophy Trout Fishery by Fish Alaska Magazine
The Naknek River boasts major runs of King ( Chinook ), Sockeye ( Red ), Silver ( Coho), and
Chum Salmon along with Monster Rainbow Trout and Arctic Grayling. Expect 1 to 2 million
Salmon per year to enter our River. The Naknek River and the surrounding Katmai National
Park are also excellent habitat for bears, bald eagles, moose, wolves, caribou and other Alaskan
Visit the Naknek River and Bristol Bay in June and July for trophy King Salmon fishing.
These monster fish average over 30 lbs and can reach up to 60 lbs or larger. In late June to the
end of July the river receives Bristol Bay's largest Sockeye Salmon run, some days hundreds of
thousands of Sockeye's enter into the Naknek River. In late July through September we will
be fighting the acrobatic Silver Salmon ( Coho ). Pound for pound the Silver Salmon is the top
fighting Salmon. Perfect for fly fishing, the Silver Salmon will also take top water flies or lures
for the spin fisherman.
Even with record runs of Salmon the real prize on the Naknek River are the Trophy Sized
Rainbow Trout. 10 lb. Rainbow Trout are caught on the fly with some fish over 30 to 37 inches
in length. This is truly the finest Rainbow Trout fishing in the world. We cater to both the fly
fisherman and the spin fisherman, from novice to expert. Much of our fishing done by walking
and wading but we also offer lots of opportunity for boat fishing and/or drifting.
Fly Out Fishing
Our prime location gives us access to fish most waters of Katmai and also most of Bristol Bay
on our fly out fishing trips. Airplanes are available for fly out fishing trips to Katmai Park and
other locations in Bristol Bay. Also a short flight away is the Brooks River and one of the most
famous Bear Viewing locations at the Falls. Go for the day and enjoy the wildlife or cast for
beautiful Rainbow Trout in the Brooks River.
