Stay at the lodge each night and go fishing each day with two anglers per guide fishing out of 16 foot jet boats. Fish for all five species of Pacific salmon, as well as rainbow trout, dolly varden and grayling. King salmon are available from the second week of June through end/middle of July, and silver salmon are a target from late July through the end of August. Fishing for silver salmon is really fast paced and lots of fun. They’re bright, very aggressive and fight hard; they are acrobatic fighters. Use floating lines and brightly-colored flies – streamers as well as surface patterns like poppers and pollywogs.
The trout fishing is amazing, with flesh, egg, sculpin and leech patterns all producing at various times. The river is an excellent place to fish giant dry flies that imitate mice and voles – mousing is about as fun as it gets.
When fresh king salmon are in the river, target them with swung flies, and often with two-handed rods. These fish are hot and bright, and they crush swung flies – this fishing is totally different from the upriver nymphing techniques used to target kings in many other parts of Alaska.
In late July, it is possible to pursue the Salmon Grand Slam – all five species of Pacific salmon, all on flies, all on the same day. Use a variety of fly fishing techniques when going for the Grand Slam, and that’s a big part of the fun – lots of techniques, lots of fish, lots of different water.
Getting to Alaska West Camp means flying to Anchorage and then taking a charter or schedule from Anchorage to the lodge (about one and a half hours) Sunday to Sunday. June to September. We suggest having a night in Anchorage pre and post fly out to the camp. Optional holiday extensions available.
