ALAGNAK RIVER FLY FISHING
Bristol Bay is a mecca for fly fishing, and even in Bristol Bay, you won’t find a better river than the Alagnak.
THE PERFECT RIVER FOR FLY FISHING | The Alagnak River
If you had to design a river perfect for fly fishing, you couldn’t do much better than to copy the Alagnak River. In the lower stretches the river is wide enough to give the biggest kings plenty of room to make spectacular long runs, and has numerous sandbars perfect for the fly fisherman who likes to get out of the boat and wade the river. The combination of shallow and deep water is ideal; in the clear water of the Alagnak River you can expect to see schools of silver and chum salmon holding on the edge of shallow sandbars, while the larger kings can be found holding in the deeper channels.
The Alagnak River, with its strong runs of all five salmon species, has something to offer everyone from the beginner to the expert. The experienced fly fisherman will enjoy the challenge of kings and the acrobatic silvers, while even a novice fly fisherman will have success casting to schools of silvers, chums and pinks that will aggressively attack a fly.
