The Real Alaska Experience
Dave & Kim Egdorf’s Western Alaska Sport Fishing is a fly-in Alaska fishing trip experience in western Alaska’s Bristol Bay region. The Nushagak is a gravel bottomed, clear-running, modest-sized river; an ideal habitat for spawning salmon, with mega numbers of rainbow trout, arctic grayling and char. It is truly a world-class fishing getaway… where you can escape ‘real world’ pressures and be selfish with your angling passion and fish your heart out… or just relax… at your pace… day after day… in total comfort.
The camp, on the banks of the Nushagak, is well-defined as “rugged comfort.” The surrounding wilderness is breathtaking and unspoiled. Fishing is the main attraction, with wildlife sightings and available side trips to spice things up a bit. Anglers will have excellent opportunities to catch rainbow trout, arctic grayling, and dolly varden (char) which are available all season; and chum, sockeye, coho and king salmon, which are available during specific periods throughout the season.
