Angler’s Alibi is considered to be an excellent Alaska salmon fly fishing lodge to travel to when you are targeting ‘salmon on the fly’. Why is that though? Location, location, location…Angler’s Alibi is located right in the center of the tidewater on the Alagnak River, which is part of the Bristol Bay Watershed. This region has the largest salmon runs in the world and the Alagnak River is one of the top 3 salmon rivers in this area of many rivers – so, guests of Angler’s Alibi Fishing Lodge are in the heart of great salmon fishing…all five species.
The beauty of the Alagnak is that it is the easiest of the top three rivers in Bristol Bay to fly fish due to its size and easy wading. The Kvichak and Nushagak Rivers have great numbers of salmon as well but do not have the tidewater fishing that the Alagnak has due to its size in the tidal zone. This is a hard river to beat when it comes to the sheer numbers of Pacific salmon one can catch while fly fishing on a daily basis starting the first week of July through the middle of August.
