Alaska Red Salmon (Sockeye) Fly Fishing Trips - Kenai River, Alaska

Red Salmon (Sockeye) Fishing - Fly Fishing Trips

For your next fly fishing trip, our lodge provides access to some of the best salmon fly fishing in the world. The preferred way to catch red Salmon is fly fishing and up to one million go directly past the lodge. Our guides know how to maximize your catch and your enjoyment while flyfishing for red salmon. They supply all the equipment/knowledge and the fish supply all of the fun! Red salmon are amazingly acrobatic and are an absolute blast catch on flyfishing tackle. You need not be an experienced fly fishermen to catch red salmon on the fly. Our guides are accustomed to working with beginners to professionals.

We fly fish for salmon in various rivers on the Kenai Peninsula: Kenai River, Kasilof River, Anchor River, Ninilchik River and Deep Creek. There are other locations where we fly fish for other species such as Grayling, Dolly Varden, and Rainbow Trout.

In your free time, you can also try fly fishing for salmon directly at the Lodge.
 

In addition to fly fishing for trout and Dolly Varden, in July there is excellent fly fishing directly at the lodge.  In this case, we are specifically referring to Red Salmon.  The best way to catch red Salmon is using flies.  The kind of fly is not critical, the only important thing is that the fly flow with the current near the bottom.  Red salmon do not strike a fly, it is up to the angler to get the fly into the mouth of the fish swimming upstream, it does take great technique which must be learned.  Once again, you can use either fly fishing gear or spinning gear.

 

Red Salmon are as acrobatic as can get.  These fish which go up to a maximum of about fourteen pounds, routinely break 30 pound test.  Last July at the lodge, I hooked 100 of these amazing fishing in one evening in about two hours of fishing.  I only landed around 10 (I released most of them) and many times these fish just snapped my 30 pound test.  That is Reds fishing!  The next evening I hooked about 70.  I use a 9 wt. fly rod and a reel with heavy drag. Even then, palming is ordinarily necessary. An 8 wt. rod is a good minimum.


This would look beautiful on the wall, but you wouldn't want to eat it!
