The 2023 season got rolling a touch late for our traditional 4th late week of June opening, but as usual – the mighty Alagnak River just kept building! The fishing got fast and furious by July 4th for sockeye salmon as record numbers of fish slammed into the river daily on high tides providing nonstop action for our guests. Along with this near record numbers of sockeye salmon came a strong run of king salmon that was welcomed eagerly by our anglers. Some of the largest kings came “on the swing” with spey rod anglers wading shallow sandbars in the lower river. It is hard to beat the fight of a 25 pound+ king salmon on a fly rod covered with sea lice fresh from the salt!
