    Alaska Kingfishers operates a remote Alaska Salmon Fishing facility located on the banks of the Nushagak River in the heart of Bristol Bay, Alaska. Come fish with our Expert Alaska Fishing Guides.

    The Nushagak River is Alaska's most prolific river for Alaska King Salmon Fishing and this river also receives huge runs of Chrome Bright Chum Salmon and Sockeye Salmon. All anglers are welcome, we offer Alaska fly fishing guides and conventional tackle guided fishing. For an additional charge, Alaska Kingfishers also offers World Class Alaska Fly Out Fishing Trips to Alaska's Bearclaw Lodge. At Bearclaw Lodge we fish the Agulawok River for Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Arctic Grayling, Northern Pike, and Sockeye Salmon. Our Remote Alaska Fly Out Fishing Trips provide anglers with spectacular fishing where all you'll see is wildlife and the fish you catch.

    We only open our Alaska fishing camp for a few weeks during the prime time of these bountiful Alaska Salmon runs. We recommend that you book early to ensure that you catch that trophy Alaska King Salmon or your first Arctic Char! Our expert Alaska fishing guides will get you hooked up with fish you'll go home bragging about. Call our Alaska guided fishing service today to book your dates.

    The Nushagak's unimaginable runs of King Salmon, Chum Salmon, and Sockeye Salmon are certainly worthy of the trip by themselves, However once on the Nushagak River you will find yourself gazing off into the wilderness or watching a moose cross the river. Whether you are a serious angler looking to land two or three dozen Alaska Kings a day.. or your first 50 pounder... or just looking for a unique Alaska fishing trip to share with some friends... you have no need to look further -- Alaska Kingfishers.

    At Alaska Kingfishers you will stay in a very comfortable and complete tent camp right on the edge of the river. Each guest will sleep in a two person heated tent cabin, complete with wooden floors, beds with linen. The camp has generator power and shower facilities with hot & cold running water. We offer all the comforts of home to ensure you have an amazing Alaska fishing trip. The dining tent is a casual place to relax, work on tackle and enjoy some very fine home cooking & baking. The camp is just steps from the river, allowing those with enough energy to actually fish late into the evening under the light of the midnight sun.
