Angler’s Alibi is in a location to intercept fresh sea run Pacific Salmon the minute they enter fresh water on the very tide they ride in on. We are an Alaska salmon fly fishing lodge on the Alagnak River, right in the middle of the tidewater. What this means it that on every tide during the salmon fishing season, the current of the river slows down, and the level of the river rises as much as 4 feet. On the larger tides, the current actually reverses in front of camp. What does this mean to the fly angler looking to target Alaska salmon on the fly? Fresh chrome bright Alaska salmon right out your door for 7 straight weeks! We fish from camp no longer than a maximum boat ride of 10 minutes throughout the season to keep our guests on fresh salmon every day (note: we do offer fly-out fishing trips as an option)
The wading for Alaska salmon on the fly is very easy as the Alagnak River has a firm sandy bottom, and the fishing from sand bars in the lower river is unbelievable! The only exception to wade fishing on the fly is when we specifically target king salmon and silver salmon. The kings are fished mostly from the boat, as they lie in much deeper water, and the silver salmon are fished sometimes from the boat as they like to hold in deeper water as well. Most of our fly fishing is done while wading and we can even target kings and silvers while wading if that is what the guest prefers.
If catching fresh king salmon, silver salmon, sockeye salmon, chum salmon, and pink salmon on the fly is what you desire, then consider Angler’s Alibi! We maintain a return rate of nearly 90% with past guests (this alone should speak volumes in our operation but see our Trip Advisor reviews too) so contact Anglers Alibi to discuss your fishing trip goals!
