"The opportunity of a lifetime....that's the best way to describe my trip to Naknek river camp in Alaska.
I had waited the better part of two decades to go to Alaska and with lodge prices alone averaging about 8k and sometimes going over 10k it looked impossible.
The entire trip for me- flight, food, reasonable tip and a fly out on a float plane was a tad under 5k.
The Johnson family, who run the camp, are awesome, kind people who care that your experience is great.
All of the guides are first-class and know exactly how to fish for the myriad of types of fish that are there.
I caught 5 new species of fish (Dolly Varden, Grayling, King, Chum and Sockeye salmon) and also caught numbers and size of northern pike and rainbow trout.
I saw Bears and Foxes in the wild, we got to speed around in 90 hp jet boats, and still somehow how hot showers and warm food everyday. Josh and Mad River Outfitters made this trip easy, memorable and fun.
This is an experience every fly angler should have at least once....I know I'll be back.
