Fly Fish the Upper Braids of the Alagnak

world-class rainbow fishing

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 daily jet boat fishing. Many days they 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 which include 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.
Five runs of Salmon:
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)
Chum Salmon:  July 15 thru August 15
Pink Salmon:  July 25 thru August 25
Silver Salmon:  August 5 thru September 20
Dolly varden:  August thru September
Grayling:   All season
Northern pike:   Early season until mid-July.
Your Hosts:  Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is family-owned and operated. You'll be hosted by Wayne and Sue McGee. They are lifelong adventurers with a passion for service and the great outdoors.
