We are so confident that we offer the Best Salmon Fishing in Alaska that we even offer a guarantee. You’ve tried the rest now fish with the best!

As the premier Alaska Salmon Lodge on the Nushagak River we offerNushagak River Fishing Lodge 2 some of the finest Salmon Fishing In Alaska. First originated 35 miles downriver by Portage Creek it was soon decided to seek a better location for our Alaskan Fishing Lodge. The lodge now sits high on the riverbank just below one of the Nushagaks major tributary’s called the Kokwok. Another 7 miles north lies the village of Ekowok where our guests fly into. The location of our Alaska Salmon Lodge is very unique and puts us in a very strategic position for catching higher numbers of fish. We have a 14 mile stretch of river all to ourselves.

Our Alaska Salmon Lodge was created for all anglers seeking a high degree of comfort while experiencing the best Salmon Fishing In Alaska.
