The Nushagak River flows into Bristol Bay Alaska which is one of the largest King Salmon runs in the World! Jakes Alaska has been the first commercial camp on the river and in operation for 28 years.
Jakes is the first camp on the river still effected by the tide. We get the first shot at the kings coming in on the tide! Limits of Kings are not a problem when you come to Jakes Alaska on the Nushagak!
You’ll fly via commercial jet from Anchorage to the village of Dillingham, located in the heart of the Bristol Bay Drainage, also known as the Salmon Capital of the World. From here you board float equipped aircraft for the flight to our remote fishing camp. When you arrive at camp, you’ll have time to unpack and accompany your guide on a brief introduction of the camp facilities and then on to shore fishing that evening.
At the Nushagak Salmon Camp we use boats for getting to the different streams, creeks, and rivers within the camp’s proximity. The fish are never far away. If you are a good caster, you can almost land a lunker from your tent door. You will not have to spend several hours a day flying around like at some lodges or camps. Also consider that if the weather is poor, you can still get out to the fish when planes don’t fly.
