The Togiak River ... meanders it's way towards the Bering Sea Coast from our put in location at it's headwaters on Togiak Lake, it passes a number of tributaries which offer phenomenal fishing, and jaw dropping campsite vistas. It is not uncommon to sit around a roaring fire in the evening, recalling the days fishing and wildlife viewing, whilst the moon rises from behind the surrounding peaks and a chorus of wolves and owls compete for that "Oh, WOW" moment that will last a lifetime.
Of course, all of this sounds idyllic, we haven't even discussed the fishing to be had here!
The Togiak boasts a large biomass of fish ranging from Dolly Varden/Arctic Char by the thousands, Arctic Grayling that resemble a taxidermists wet dream, to Rainbow Trout that have maxed out in the 32"+ range, and did we mention the Coho (silver) Salmon runs?
Togiak Rver Coho, Silver SalmonSilvers so thick and feisty that you may find yourself back home weeks later asking your physician if he has a way to treat Coho Elbow. These fish don't have far to travel from the sea, and aren't fighting a heavy current, so when they strike a fly they have energy to spare, and they will take it out on the angler with a vengeance.
Complimenting the Coho Run, the Togiak also offers King Salmon as well as Sockeye Salmon runs that are very difficult to beat anywhere.
Our Togiak River float trip with Alaska Rainbow Adventures in 2021 was phenomenal! The fishing, scenery and overall experience more than exceeded my Bucket List expectations.
Paul and his team provided great equipment, comfortable accommodations and the best cooking I’ve ever had in the wilderness!
I look forward to another ARA float adventure!
