Overview

The Aniak River is one of the most unique and technical rivers in the world. From the time you begin your Aniak River fishing adventure until the time you arrive back the following week in preparation of returning home, you will have fished 75 miles of the Aniak River – 35 miles up and 35 miles back.

The Aniak offers up its 11 species (when the Pink Salmon are in). Depending on the week of your stay, there will be between 7 and 10 species of fish for your angling pleasure. Aniak’s mother river, the Kuskokwim, boasts the largest Chum Salmon and Silver Salmon run and the 2nd largest King Salmon run of any river in Alaska.

OUR FISH EAT MICE! That’s right – Your Aniak River Adventure at Aniak River Lodge holds the title of one of two top “trout mousing rivers in Alaska and one that is favored around the globe! The Aniak and its tributaries have an incredibly healthy and unpressured Leopard Rainbow Trout population. At this time, WE ARE THE ONLY MAJOR OUTFITTER on this river.

When is the best time catching giant Leopard Rainbows on mice patterns? The answer is actually any week we are open. However, the months of June, July and early August show off the river’s “mousing specialty” and it certainly separates our Aniak River Adventure from other operations in Alaska.

Alaska is truly “The Last Wilderness Frontier” and the Aniak River is its hidden treasure boasting its bounty – season after season.
