Kanektok River | Alaska

                The Kanektok Is a heavenly place.  We operate some of our fishing expeditions on the rivers in Western Alaska out of Dillingham and Bethel.  The Kanecktok River is in Togiak national Wildlife Refuge.  The Kanektok flows as a clear water river with prolific bird life.  It is often referred to as the “Chosen River” because if there is a river in Heaven this might be the one.  Fishing in Alaska doesn’t get much better than on the Kanektok, which flows through the beautiful Ahklum Mountains during its upper half.  We begin our journey with a float plane trip to the headwaters where we land in Kagati Lake.  It has strong runs of all the Pacific salmon, especially Kings, Silvers, sea run Char and Rainbow.  The second half of the river flows onto the coastal plain through willow, alder and cottonwood forests.  The Kanektok truly fulfills the dream of Alaska’s best fishing river.  At our trips end you are two miles from the ocean; which ensures a mighty fight from the Salmon.  The river then pours into the Pacific at Quinhagak, our take out point.
