This video provides a glimpse into the fishing opportunities available for Pacific salmon from Goodnews River Lodge in Alaska. Over 450 air miles due west of Anchorage in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge, the Goodnews River Lodge offers anglers inspiration, relaxation and terrific fishing.
Goodnews River Lodge has a reputation as one of the finest king salmon fisheries in Alaska. These huge fish up to forty pounds or more will take a fly readily, and battles well over an hour are not uncommon. You will find all 5 of the Alaskan salmon species present during the season, some incredible rainbow trout, grayling and dolly varden and the silver run has to be seen to be believed. Weighing-in at up to twenty pounds silver or coho salmon are undoubtedly the hardest fighting of all Pacific salmon for their size.
