Fly Fishing the Kanektok River from Alaska West Lodge with Deneki Outdoors
Alaska West Fishing Lodge is located on the Kanektok River in Western Alaska.
At Alaska West Lodge, we fish for all five species of Pacific salmon, as well as rainbow trout, dolly varden and grayling. Our guests stay with us at the lodge each night and go fishing each day with two anglers per guide fishing out of 18 foot jet boats.
Our Fishing Season
Our season runs from the third week of June through the end of August each summer. Our fishery is incredibly productive and folks who know call it a ‘fish factory.‘
Most of our guests like catching a variety of fish species – all season long we have trout, dolly varden and grayling available, and various salmon species as well. King salmon are available from the third week of June through end middle of July, and silver salmon are a target from late July through the end of August.
In late July, many of our guests like to pursue the Salmon Grand Slam – all five species of Pacific salmon, all on flies, all on the same day. We use a variety of fly fishing techniques when we’re going for the Grand Slam, and that’s a big part of the fun – lots of techniques, lots of fish, lots of different water.
The Fishing Lodge
At Deneki Outdoors, we call our accommodations ‘comfortable but casual.’ We pride ourselves on a very high level of service and on delivering a great experience during your stay, but we are not trying to be a ‘luxury lodge.’ The atmosphere is relaxing and a heck of a lot of fun.
