Overview

Becharof Rapids Camp sits on the bank of the Egegik River on the outlet of Becharof Lake 300 miles south west from Anchorage, in the Bristol Bay region. Becharof Lake is the second largest Lake in Alaska. Uninhabited, untouched and pristine, the Lake is a veritable salmon factory. Southwest Alaska’s premier fly in fishing camp destination is on the Egegik River. Our camp borders the largest Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

The Egegik River is an Alaska fly fishing paradise. We are a full service camp and provide all the fishing gear including guide, rods, reels, all terminal tackle and bait. Fly fisherman will have to bring their own rods, gear and flies. We have some fly tying supplies and a vice at the camp. Your guide will always have some flies available. Generous meals are also included in our packages. After breakfast is served you will then be taken to a good fishing spot on the river in a jet sled. At noon, we head back to the camp for a hearty lunch. We resume fishing until 6:00 p.m. and then it’s time to have dinner. If you still want to fish after dinner you are always welcome. Catch and release is the preferred method after dinner. The limit is five Salmon per day, You may catch and release as much as you like prior to keeping your limit. Your fish will then be vacuum packed for you with our commercial vacuum sealer and then frozen. The option to smoke some of your fish is available.

The Salmon fishing here is great, it really should be called “catching” not “fishing”. We have so little fishing pressure on the River with only two small camps on the entire drainage. Float Plane access is limited so you will never feel crowded. Whether you’re a fly fisherman, spin caster or bait caster you will experience fishing Alaska at its absolute finest. We always take you to the best spots on the river by jet sled. While a lot of our fishing is catch and release, if you want to keep your limit per day that is not a problem. You will fly out of Becharof Rapids Camp with two wet lock boxes of frozen vacuum packed filets .

We fish the Egegik River just a few miles above salt water in fresh water. The fish are in great shape, chrome bright with sea lice. The section of the Egegik River that we fish is always clear and always able to be fished. It never blows out or gets dirty so don’t worry about the old… “you should have been here last week” excuse. It is always good fishing when the camp is open.

What makes us unique:

  1. We have so little fishing pressure on the River with only two small camps on the entire drainage.
  2. Each year only 114 people in the world get to participate in this remote all-inclusvie fly-in fishing adventure of a lifetime
  3. 1.5 miles downstream from Becharof Lake (2nd largest lake in Alaska)
  4. 800K-1.2 million annual sockeye run
