This is the real Alaska! At the outset of establishing a destination for the visiting rainbow trout/wilderness enthusiast. The upper Nushagak River became the immediate first choice for owner Dave Egdorf. Since that time (1982) the Nushagak has been the ‘home river’ of operations for Western Alaska Sport Fishing, Inc. The upper river and its tributaries remain very productive and still provide anglers with a wonderful wilderness fly fishing experience in an uncrowded setting.
Your host at Dave & Kim's Egdorf's Western Alaska Sport Fishing: Dave Egdorf, Owner. Generally, fishing is a relaxing endeavor... a way to escape 'real world' pressures... and be selfish with your passion. Alaska fishing is the ultimate 'spoil you' experience and you will likely become passionately addicted to Alaska and its fabulous fishing. But there is something more... it is a rare opportunity to experience an immense, primitive and unchanged wilderness. Join us for your 'Real Alaska Experience'!

Bed down amid Bering Sea Spruce trees up to 300 years old. The area is thick with wildlife, with numerous weekly sightings of moose, brown bear, eagles, and even the occasional wolf, wolverine, and caribou. You can also venture out to nearby Tikchik State Park for more wildlife viewing. Your angling package includes round trip air transport from the town of Dillingham to camp, all lodging and meals at camp, and daily guided fishing. The staff offer side trips for bear watching, flight seeing, and fishing for ocean fresh salmon, Sheefish, Arctic Char, Lake Trout, and the pugnacious pike. You can also choose an out-camp, an overnight outing for fishing some of the area’s hottest holes. Come in mid-June for good Rainbow, grayling and char fishing in near-endless daylight.
