Fly Fish the Upper Braids

Angler with a Beautiful Rainbow

There are no other fly-out lodges able to access this 30-mile stretch of the upper Alagnak, known as The Braids. Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is located six miles downstream from the confluence of three rivers—the Alagnak, the Kukaklek, and the Nonvianuk. Excellent access without the need for fly-outs.
The Lodge specializes in jet boat fishing. They often fish within sight of the main lodge, as this area of the upper braids holds world-class rainbows all season. They offer daily and overnight trips to Kukaklek or Nonvianuk Lake outlets and other local tributaries, including Little Kukaklek, Moraine Creek, and Battle River.
King Salmon start to enter the Alagnak near the end of June and run through the end of July. The Lodge's prime slots for kings are the last two weeks in July, but they can still target them earlier in the season.

Sockeye Salmon:  June 26 thru July 22
King Salmon:  July 1 thru July 30 (the last two weeks of July are peak season for kings)

Pink Salmon:  July 25 thru August 25
Silver Salmon:  August 5 thru September 20
