The Alagnak River and Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge - The Fish - Part 8 (Arctic Grayling)

Arctic Grayling are generally dark across the back and have iridescent grey sides. With its sail-like dorsal fin and dotted with spectacular patterns, the Grayling is one of the most unusual and beautiful fish of Alaska. The Alagnak River offers our angler unlimited access to trophy Grayling fishing all season long. One of the great things about Grayling is the fact that they always seem to be looking up which makes them prone to taking dry fly patterns even after the salmon start spawning. They will often come clear out of the water on their aggressive takes. It is hard to say when the prime season for this beautiful fish is, as we seem to do well for them regardless...

The Alagnak River and Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge - The Fish - Part 7 (Arctic Char/Dolly Varden)

Arctic Char are a beautiful fish that closely resemble a large brook trout. They are strong fighters with very similar feeding patterns to trout. As a result, you will catch these fish while targeting our rainbows and often they rise to dry flies as well as chasing streamers. Char are best known for their fall colours of bright reds and orange. Although we catch these spectacular fish all season, the best time to come and target them is August through September as they increase in numbers and beauty. A 6/7 wt. rod with weight forward floating line is recommended when fishing for Arctic char.  FISHING PERIOD: All season with peak in Weeks 8-13 Once Again Peak Weeks fall during our...

The Alagnak River and Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge - The Fish - Part 6 (Rainbow Trout)

Rainbow Trout are one of the most prized fish for many anglers traveling to Alaska. Whether if for their great size, or the fact that they fight harder here than anywhere else in the world, the Alaskan Rainbow is a fish that should be on everyone’s bucket list. With only a few short months to gain crucial weight before the harsh winter begins again, these fish have to be strong, resilient and aggressive feeders, leaving them prone to attack both top water and subsurface flies. The Alagnak Rainbows, also referred to as “Leopard Trout” because of the pronounced spots which cover their whole body, are truly a dream game fish; one of mother nature’s most beautiful works of art. We...

The Alagnak River and Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge - The Fish - Part 5 (Pink Salmon)

Pink Salmon run only in even years, but when they run, they run strong. Although the Pinks average only 3 to 5 lbs., they more than make up for it with sheer numbers. Being that they are so numerous and smaller in size, they make for a perfect fish for beginners and younger fisherman to learn how to hook, fight and land fish (this is a great time for families to come). Pink salmon enter the Alagnak late in July and continue into mid-August. During August our anglers will often average 20-40 Pinks landed a day as they are very aggressive to anything thrown at them. A 7 wt. rods and weight forward floating line is what we recommend for...

The Alagnak River and Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge - The Fish - Part 4 (Chum Salmon)

Chum Salmon are one of the most underrated fish in Alaska. Probably because their meat is more suitable for dogs than humans. But being an angler, this doesn’t bother me as they are pound for pound the hardest fighting salmon in the pacific. Chums start entering the river mid-July and continue in big numbers to mid-August. Chums average 9 to 12lbs., but can get over 16 lbs in weight. They are great fun to target on the fly due to their ferocious strikes and aggressive nature. They are quick to take a swung or striped fly and will sometimes even take flies off the surface as well! We use 8/9 wt. rods for these bruisers’ and are in no way over gunned!...
