Another week has gone by which means its time for, that’s right, another Kulik Lodge fishing report from our team on-site.
Give it a read below!
Kulik Lodge Fishing Report: July 13 – July 20
The beginning of this week continued with the warm temperatures and sunny conditions, but the weather has finally changed. The middle of the week brought cooler temperatures and some much needed rain. A rare thunder storm even rolled through camp one evening this week.
Our king salmon camp has officially closed down for this season. The new camp location and new boats on the Nushagak River proved to be a major improvement to the program over previous years and the fishing this year was excellent for all the guest that decided to try their luck for the largest of the salmon species. We are anxiously awaiting next year’s king salmon season!
Fishing on the Kulik River continues to produce good numbers and quality of fish. Swinging streamers has been the ticket this week and guests are loving the aggressive takes from the hard-fighting rainbow trout found in the Kulik. The first few sockeye salmon have been seen moving up the Kulik River bound for the feeder creeks on Kulik Lake. There have even been a few bears spotted just outside of camp, a sure sign that more sockeye salmon are not far away.
Fly-out fishing for sockeye salmon has started and guests are loving caching limits of these hard fighting salmon. It also doesn’t hurt that they get to take a box full of fresh salmon filets home at the end of the day!
Large numbers of sockeye salmon continue to push up the Brooks River, much to the delight of the bears and bear viewers. Some guests even saw a wolf walking down the beach of Naknek Lake this week, a truly special sight.
