Rainbow Trout                      

Alaska's wild rainbow trout stocks are known around the world for their size and fight with some specimens reaching as much as 15 pounds. Average specimens in the Bristol Bay Wild Trout Area are from 15-23 inches and weighing in at 2 to 5 pounds. The Alagnak or "branch" river is an excellent fishery known worldwide for it's healthy rainbow trout population with many fish caught and safely released each season in excess of 28 inches by our guests.

Arctic Char-Dolly Varden

The Arctic Char is a lake resident species in Alaska, it's a sea run cousin the Dolly Varden is nearly identical to the Arctic Char but somewhat smaller and lighter in color. Mature Dolly Varden average 2 to 3 ponds and a trophy Arctic Char would be 10 pounds or more. Wet flies and small bright lures readily attract both of these prized sport fish and with Alaska Rainbow Adventures a trip on the Togiak river in southwest Alaska will put you on one of the premier streams for Arctic Char in Alaska

Grayling                           

Alaska's clear, cold, unpolluted waters provide the arctic grayling with the ideal habitat. Known as the aristocrat of the North, and noted for its large dorsal fin grayling average 1 to 2 pounds with trophy weight being at least 3. It is not uncommon to catch specimens in the 20 to inch range on some of our floats such as the beautiful Goodnews River in southwest Alaska.

 

King Salmon (chinook)     

The largest of the salmon and Alaska's state fish these tackle busters average 20 pounds and may run up to 60 pounds on your Alaska Rainbow Adventures trip. One of the best runs in recent years came in on the Alagnak river last season with kings being available in large numbers thru mid to late August. We also see excellent runs of these great fish during our Togiak river floats, so choose a river, get some friends together and lets go king fishing! A variety of lures will attract chinook as well as large gaudy flies thrown by those who pursue the king with a fly rod.

Silver Salmon (Coho)        

Spectacular fighters when hooked, these acrobatic salmon with the ability to leap 6 feet in mid-air are extremely popular among anglers on our Togiak and Alagnak river floats in the early fall. Actively taking bright spoons and flies. Coho enter freshwater to spawn in early August thru mid-September depending on the river system and average 7 to 14 pounds with the state record being 26 pounds.

Red Salmon (sockeye)       

Alaska is home to the largest runs of sockeye salmon in the world with millions of these 6 to 8 pound silver-blue fish entering the streams of the Bristol Bay region and Cook Inlet in mid to late June. With the Alagnak and Togiak rivers being the destination many of these millions of fish we can assure you of lots of action in early to mid-July for these scrappy fighters prized for their red flesh and good eating.  The Kenai River has two runs of Sockeye, first run starts in mid-June and the second run starts about mid-July.  Sockeye smolt migrate from the lakes that feed the Alagnak river are responsible for some excellent spring trout fishing. Ask about one of our early season trips.

 Steelhead                                  

Catching a Steelhead is one of Alaska's great treasures.  When you find a steelhead hole in the river, most of the time we like to keep it quiet, and take advantage of it ourselves.  Alaska's Kenai Peninsula offers several rivers with good steelhead fishing, including the Anchor River.
