What to Expect in June

June has a palpable energy that stands apart from every other season. Everything comes alive after a long winter and spring. The coastal brown bears are also sensing the changes in the season, the first salmon of the new year will be making their way home, and the bears will be there to greet them. The long daylight hours are also a unique aspect of fishing in June. With up to 18 hours of daylight, we have plenty of time to explore the vast wilderness of the Bristol Bay region and make the most of our trips. The long days have a way of recharging the soul after the long dark winter.

June Fishing in Alaska


June fishing in Alaska is a very diverse and exciting time. Anglers can catch king salmon, rainbow trout, arctic char, dolly varden, arctic grayling, lake trout, and northern pike. There are both boats and walk & wade options and guests have options to fish with terminal tackle (gear) or fly fish.  The Nushagak River is known for its King Salmon run during this month and is a popular destination for all levels of anglers.

  • King Salmon fishing on the Nushagak River
  • Fly fishing small intimate streams with hiking options
  • Fishing in Katmai National Park
  • Fishing and/or exploring Becharof Wildlife Refuge

Our guides are experienced, knowledgeable and focused on safety.  We are all patient teachers who love to share Bristol Bay with our guests and meet them at their ability. Click here to meet our team!

Two anglers per guide.   We rotate boat partners and guides daily. Each evening guests discuss our upcoming adventure with their guide.  On the Nushagak River we may put four anglers per guide in one large boat to increase the chances of hookups-the more lines in the water the better!
