These 30 to 55 pound lunkers will really put a bend in your toughest rod. You won't find better fly fishing waters for bright, fresh out of the saltwater Chinook. We fish a number of different rivers for King Salmon and enjoy a full eight weeks of great King Salmon fishing. Our area gets very little fishing pressure; therefore, Wildman has never experienced unexpected closures or restrictions like other regions of Alaska.
Hundreds of thousands of sockeye salmon return to our home and neighboring rivers each summer, making the Alaska Peninsula rivers some of the best sockeye fishing in all of Alaska. As the salmon choke these rivers, the rainbow trout and Arctic char literally gorge themselves on salmon eggs and nearly double their weight by late fall. Sockeye is our favorite table fish but also makes excellent Sushi as it is prized for its beautiful red flesh!
Silvers begin to arrive in early August, peak in September and continue into the month of October. Silver Salmon, ranging from 12 to 22 pounds, can be taken on flies, spinners or spoons at Wildman Lake Lodge. Our guides specialize in fishing these scrappy Coho with Top Water Poppers and Wogs with conventional or Spey rods.
