Remote Fly Fishing Camp - Excellent Value
Aleutian Adventures’ remote Alaskan fly fishing camp on the Sapsuk River provides anglers with exclusive access to some of the most remote, pristine and virtually untouched waterways in the gateway to Bristol Bay.
Sapsuk (Hoodoo) River Fishing
Swing flies to wild salmon at Aleutian Rivers Angling remote salmon camp in the Alaska Peninsula. The
Sapsuk, which is also known as the Hoodoo River, is ideal for fly fishing and is easily waded. The camp has
exclusive access to multiple rivers and caters to only six anglers per week.
Fish for chrome-bright kings and silvers fresh from the Bering Sea. There are also plenty of chum, sockeye, pinks, rainbows, and dollies.
Guy Schoenborn visited this intimate camp in September of 2014. He was very impressed. Anglers mostly wade fish. The Camp employs 16’-17’ boats with 60/40 Yamaha motors for accessing fishing areas. Three anglers per boat and guide.
Sapsuk River Season
"Put this one on the bucket list." - Brian Okeefe.
King Season: June and July - These chrome-bright kings come straight out of the Bering Sea and onto the end of your line. Anglers can expect to catch between two and eight kings per day. Catch-and-release king fishery. July and August are Grand Slam Season. The Sapsuk River is one of the best places in the world to catch all five species of Pacific salmon on the fly.
Silver Salmon Season: Mid-August to Mid-September. These silvers love pollywogs. The Sapsuk River is regarded as one of the very best silver streams on the Alaskan Peninsula.
Guy Schoenborn's Recap:
"What a fishery and at a great price. The manager picked me up at the airstrip at Nelson Lagoon and told me the river
was the highest he had seen it in his lifetime. I thought we were going to have problems finding fish, but that
was not the case. I fished about three hours and landed at least 25 silvers on pink bunny leeches. The fish were
fresh out of the salt with many of them covered in sea lice. These are nice-sized silvers; most were 10-13 pounds. I
couldn’t imagine how good it would have been under normal conditions. I only had the one day to see their operation, so
I made the most of my short stay."
