AK West

Aug 15th - 22nd, 2014

Join St. Peter’s Fly Shop this upcoming Summer for a hosted 6 day 7 night stay at the world-reknown AK West Lodge on the Kanektok River. The Kanektok is a fish factory. With runs of all five species of Pacific salmon, rainbow trout, Dolly Varden and grayling, the river provides a great mix of quantity and variety. AK West's location on the river, 5.5 miles from its mouth, puts us in a unique position to sample the variety the river has to offer.

Downriver from our camp is the larger water, including the long gravel bars where the kings hold, the deep snaggy channels where the big rainbows lie, the backwaters that load with silvers and the tidewaters full of salmon fresh from the salt. Upriver from our camp, the river makes a transition to smaller water, side channels and tributaries. These sections allow hiking up channels for rainbows, targeting salmon in smaller water, making day-long drifts fishing for “anything” and working extremely productive dolly flats.

So it's at least three fisheries in one – take your pick!
