The 2021 season at Becharof Lodge on the Egegik River could not have gone better. By the third week in July, guests were catching high numbers of coho and by early September, the salmon were big, bright, and plentiful.
Many guests have been coming to fish silver salmon on the Egegik River for over a decade, and report last season could have been the best ever. In early August we had many days where clients landed and released over 50 coho, each, by lunch. By late August this number only grew.
But we’re not all about the numbers at Becharof Lodge. Wildlife viewing, taking in stunning sunrises and sunsets, and eating lots of delicious food, are all joyous priorities, as is getting to know fellow anglers from around the country.
Due to our remote location and the rising costs associated with operating in this part of Alaska, there’s a slight rise in pricing heading into the 2022 season. Because of these rising costs of operation, we will not be offering sockeye salmon trips in June or July.
Still, coho fishing spots are booking up quickly, so check out the 2022 Dates below and see which group fits your timeline. We’d love to have you experience what makes this one of the premier silver salmon rivers in all of Alaska.
