The Nushagak River is around 300 miles long with the biggest king run in Alaska. The annual run is 100,000 to 150,000 king salmon!!!
We will be fishing the first 40 miles of it. A lot of where we fish is influenced by the tide. There are a lot of different ways to fish for these king salmon. And they all work. The truth is we may get tired of one and move to a different technique simply for a change of pace. It is easy to switch techniques when you are catching 60 to 100 fish a day. Right out of the ocean these king salmon fight very hard.
For boats, we will be fishing out of a flat bottom river sled that fits four plus the guide comfortably. There is more than enough room to fight four kings at once. This can happen frequently with big pushes of fish on the tide.
