The 2018 fishing season was nothing short of amazing for us on the Alagnak River in Alaska. A very late run of sockeye salmon and king salmon to Bristol Bay made for a slow start to the first week on the Alagnak but once it got going, just after the 4th of July, we quickly forgot about the first few slower days. The weather was finally “average” with probably a little more rain than usual. This is not the greatest for flying out but was fantastic for our water temperature and keeping the salmon on the bite. Once the sockeye started, they did not stop until the last days of July – late start…but a late, and very good, run!
This past season, Angler’s Alibi Remote Alaska Fishing Lodge is happy to note that guests had one of the top 3 king seasons since opened our doors in 1994!
Right from the first day of the season, the average king per boat tally was in double digits and the guides never looked back. The king salmon fishing only continued to get better throughout the month of July until finally slowing down the last week of July when we still were able to land 13 king salmon on the last day of the season with 2 rods targeting kings only after lunch!
