REEL ACTION ALASKA LODGE
FLY FISHING REPORT
Kanektok River, Alaska

 

June 17th - 24, 2017

We had our first group of guests fly fishing the Kanektok River starting on June 17th, 2017. On our first week we were mainly targeting king salmon with host Simon Gawesworth and a group of skilled anglers. Spey rods and trout speys were the rods of choice - Sage X and Sage One spey rods were very effective for harnessing these big strong king salmon fresh out of the Bering Sea. Most our our fishing was done closer to our lodge positioned at tide water with some fishing also done upriver as well for rainbow trout. The action for king salmon was good with guests getting the majority of hook ups earlier in the morning and working thoughout the day for more grabs from the chinook salmon. Size ranges were good with many different year classes being represented and some nice 35lb plus kings being caught. About half way through the week guests started catching chum salmon as well which are tough fighters. The fly fishing for rainbow trout was also some of the best we have seen in years with high numbers of rainbows being caught and released on dolly llamas and (our favorite) mouse patterns.

June 24th - July 1st, 2017

Like the previous week our second group of guests enjoyed spey fishing and swinging flies for king salmon. On this week more and more chum salmon entered the river which guests caught by swinging and stripping flies in many of the lower river chum pools. The rainbow trout fishing continued to be excellent with high catch rates and many trout caught on dolly llamas and mouse patterns. Spey rods (for kings) and eight weights (for chums) were the rods of choice for salmon fishing. Six and seven weights were the go to rods for rainbow trout. Similar to the previous week the majority of our fishing was done closer to our lodge near tide water with some fishing upriver as well. It's always great to have almost 24 hrs of daylight at this time of year as well. Many of our guest enjoyed after hours fishing from our "beach" section - one of the best holding spots for kings and chums on the river a short 10min walk from the lodge!
