If you’ve never been fishing at Alaska West, and have asked, “when is the best time to fish at Alaska West?”, It’s July. The days are warmer, the river conditions are usually the best, and approximately 18 hours of daylight make for a prime week of fishing at Alaska West Lodge.
July can be the best month to come fish at Alaska West Lodge. During Mid July, the first Coho Salmon are beginning to show up and are being caught, King Salmon are still available, Chum and Sockeye Salmon are excellent. If you fancy a non-salmon rodeo, Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, and Grayling are superb. One of the most exhilarating and remarkable fly fishing experiences is catching those species, top-water with a mouse pattern.
It is during mid-July, the first Grand Slam of the season usually happens. Can you imagine…catching a King, Chum, Coho, Sockeye, Pink (when it’s a Pink year) Salmons, Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, and Grayling all in one day? Whew… sounds exhausting, but totally awesome!
Currently, we have limited availability for two weeks in mid-July. We are also offering a Fish with Family Special for the same two weeks. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at (907) 563-9788 to inquire about the availability and the Fish with Family Special.
