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!
