Kings in Bristol Bay on one of the worlds best salmon fisheries.

The Togiak carves through the wilds of Bristol Bay and spills into the Bering Sea. Originating in the mountains of an impressive wildlife refuge the area is unspoiled and rich. Home to healthy runs of all 5 species salmon, char and trout and blessed with endless water to explore, this is a fly fishermans dream.

With one of the largest wild King Salmon runs in the world and in a drainage known for big Alaskan Chinook, there are few places left like this anywhere on the planet.

Why Fish the Togiak with Epic waters?

Throw a stick in Alaska and you’ll hit a fishing operation. It can feel like every artery of water is polluted with fish. So why choose Epic for your Alaskan adventure?

Simply put, this operation is one of a kind.

The Togiak River is located in a vast wilderness region called Bristol Bay. Home to a sprawling river valley that is born high in Alaskan mountains and deposited into the Bering Sea. Healthy populations of all 5 Pacific Salmon swarm back to the area and the trout and char fishing is world class.

The river winds its way through the tundra a maze of channels and islands with big gravel glides perfect for fly fishing. Along the way bears, eagles, wolves, moose and caribou call the region home. The remoteness of the region is the reason the entire ecosystem is healthy top to bottom.

The Togiak is large wild free flowing system with clean clear water endless gravel expanses perfect for rearing fish. Sharing the region with fabled systems like the Kanectok, Nushagak and Good News, it’s located in the most prolific salmon waters anywhere on the planet. This is unspoiled fishing the way it always has been.

The Lodge

Accommodations and Meals:

The Togiak Lodge is located 5 miles up the river from the ocean among the best runs on the river. With waterside seating you can enjoy a sunset fall on the mountains of the Togiak Wilderness Refuge in the distance.

Your Hosts

  • Epic Waters Angling Spey Program Specialits
  • Epic Waters Management

    Epic Waters has been operating spey trips for king Salmon for overs 15 years. Our team has experience from all over Alaska and British Columbia. Always on the search for the next great fishery we proud to announce it here in Togiak.

    Steve Morrow will be hosting groups for the entire 2024 King spey season and will spend his time bouncing between boats and offering up his experience where it helps. He has been on the Togiak 5 seasons and with the help of local guides helped develop this new fly fishery.

The Daily Routine

Wake up early morning for hot coffee and some breakfast and then head out for the early morning shift. The first few hours of the day are best opportunity to sample the swarms of King Salmon that have migrated from the Bering Sea the night before. This is also the time before any anglers from other camps appear on the river or fly in.

Midday is nice chance to take a break, reurn to camp and eat some lunch. It’s also a great time to relax, tie a fly and even take a nap. In the land of the midnight sun a rest from fishing during the day breaks up the angling perfectly.

In the afternoon as the day drifts away, return to the Togiak and fish into the evening. The low Alaskan sun on a fresh tide might be the most precious experience Bristol Bay has to offer.

Return to camp for appies and dinner and some fireside fish stories!
