Chinook Sportfishing Adventure

6-nights / 5-full days guided fishing
Available: June 14 – July 26

Enjoy Alaska’s premier Chinook (King) fishing on the Hoodoo River.  Chrome-bright fish, less than a dozen miles from saltwater, are super-abundant in June and July.  You can fish over un-pressured Kings that take swung flies aggressively.  The experts are calling Hoodoo River one of the last great Chinook fisheries left in the world.

As an option, this package offers one and two day fly-out excursions away from the lodge to one of our nearby wilderness rivers for great King salmon and sea-run Dolly Varden fishing.
