Enjoy the thrill of catching the acrobatic Coho (Silver Salmon) on the Hoodoo River. With a run of Coho’s that are larger (10-12 lb. average), fresher, and in greater concentrations than most other areas of Alaska, you can expect fabulous fishing for this aggressive salmon. To add to the thrill, top-water action on the fly is an everyday opportunity.
As an option, this package offers one and two day fly-out excursions away from the lodge to one of our nearby wilderness rivers for Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden and more great Coho fishing.
