If the thought of hooking into a monster King Salmon or early fall chrome Steelhead gets your blood pumping than this is the fly fishing trip for you! You will fish Ninilchik’s beloved “twin rivers” which consists of the Ninilchik River and Deep Creek. Both of these tea colored rivers are closer to the stream category due to their size. But don’t let their size fool you because these rivers hold trophy-sized fish!

These magnificent waterways carve through steep bluffs and low-lying forested areas. Wildlife abounds around theses rivers with possible sightings of moose, ducks, sea otter and maybe even a bear. Bald eagles soar in the brilliant sky searching the waters for unsuspecting fish. Ninilchik has become a popular staging area for world class salmon, trout, char and halibut fishing. Alaska fishing at its best!

Twin Rivers Fly Fishing is a “Hike-In” trip.

  • The King salmon run is the most popular fishery. The run begins in late May and peaks in the second week in June.
  • Dolly Varden begins running early in July and continues throughout the summer.
  • Pink salmon runs begin in mid-July and extend into August. Larger runs of Pink salmon occur on even numbered years.
  • Silver salmon begin running at the end of July and persist until the beginning of September.
  • Steelhead runs begin in late August and continue into October. This aggressive and prized fish is pursued by the hardiest of anglers with fly-fishing being the most popular and successful method.
