The Alagnak

Also known as the Branch River, is a paradise for fishing enthusiasts. This river is home to an incredible salmon run and an abundance of Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, and Arctic Grayling. All five species of Pacific Salmon can be found here during spawning season, with the massive Sockeye Salmon run numbering between 1-2 million fish. The Kings follow with runs between 25,000 and 40,000 fish, and most King Salmon weigh between 20-40 pounds, with occasional opportunities to target 60+ pound fish.

Don't overlook the Chum Salmon, which are often ignored because they are not considered the best-eating type of Salmon. However, they are a hidden gem for sports fishing, with their tenacious nature making them a great challenge to catch. They are the second-largest of the five species of Pacific Salmon and fight like the Silvers but with the bulk of the Kings. On even years, the Pink Salmon show up and are also often overlooked for sports fishing. However, they can provide a great source of sport, and on a good day, you could wear yourself out battling them.

The Silver Salmon, the most coveted of the Salmon on the Alagnak River, are the last to enter the River. They strike hard and fight harder when hooked, and their aerobatics are unparalleled. They flip out of the water, tail-walk across the riffles, and dive deep, raising your pulse rate and causing you to hold your breath. Their remarkable fight is one reason why you never want to leave.

But that's not all. The Alagnak River is also home to some of the most sought-after fish, such as the wild, trophy-sized Rainbow Trout. These fish benefit significantly from the life cycle of the Salmon and can be big, fat, beautifully long, wild, and exhilarating when caught. The Arctic Char are equally impressive, and the Arctic Grayling are found here in great numbers. You can spend hours at the mouth of the tributaries, fishing for the Grayling while enjoying the scenic beauty of the area.

If you are a fishing enthusiast, the Alagnak River is a must-visit destination. The massive fishing opportunity and pristine natural beauty of the river will keep you coming back for more. So, pack your gear and head to the Alagnak River for an unforgettable fishing experience.
