Anderson's Nushagak King Camp
Anderson's Nushagak Camp is open five weeks in 2018 - June 17 thru July 10, 2018. Book early. The Nushagak River is located in southwest Alaska in the Bristol Bay region near the town of Dillingham. Because the river is only accessible by boat or floatplane, it receives limited angling pressure.
Nushagak King Salmon Fishing
The Nushagak is considered to be the best freshwater king salmon fishing in Alaska. Most of the kings are fresh from the ocean and aggressive biters and fighters. A
typical average, per boat per day, is double-digit catches of kings as well as many chum salmon.
There are four anglers, and one guide per 20' Willie Predator power boat. Techniques include dragging bait, trolling spinners and back trolling and bouncing. The daily limit is one adult king per day and four kings per season, plus chums and sockeye. Unlike many rivers in Alaska, the regulations allow fishing after retaining a king, which means unlimited fishing time. Chum salmon are present the entire season, and sockeye are available four out of their five weeks of operation, making this trip a salmon angler's dream.
Locations of King Salmon Camp
Anderson’s Outdoors Alaska Salmon Camp is located on the lower Nushagak River about one mile below the village of Portage Creek.
The camp sits right in the middle of the most productive stretch of water on the river, just below the east and west forks, which divides the river's run of salmon.
The entire run of salmon must swim past their camp.
2018 will be Kent Anderson's fifteenth year operating this camp on the Nushagak. They host eight anglers per week, four-anglers per guide, and are the smallest, all inclusive camp on the river. There are two guides, plus their camp chef. All staff is CPR/First Aid certified. Guides are licensed U.S. Coast Guard captains.
Anderson's King Salmon Camp
Because of the camp's size, you'll receive better service and enjoy more flexibility than the larger fishing camps in the area. The camp now has 12’x12’ hard-sided cabin-like structures which sleep two anglers each. Cabins are equipped with two twin beds with bedding, carpeted wood floors, and propane heat. The dining tent is set up with a full kitchen for the chef, and meals are excellent. They have an upgraded hot water system in the full shower facility, and well water is filtered and tested for potability. The camp has generator power and a 12-volt power inverter for nightly electricity.
Pen Air and Alaska Air provide service to Dillingham. It’s recommended that you arrive in Dillingham before 2:00 p.m. on the day your trip begins. Alternative air taxi arrangements may be available upon request. You’ll be met at the Dillingham Airport by a camp representative and transported by floatplane a 25-minute flight to camp. (The floatplane flight is included in the package price.) The floatplane is either a de Havilland Beaver or Cessna 185, both on floats.
