Company Policies


South Andros Island - Bonefish Capital of the world!

Andros South is located on South Andros Island.  We fish for bonefish, barracuda, sharks and more, and we occasionally have opportunities for shots at permit and tarpon.  Guests stay at our lodge and go fishing with our guides out of flats skiffs.

The fishery on South Andros is huge, varied and productive.  We fish 4 parts of the island – tidal creeks on the East Side, hundreds of small keys off the southern tip of the island, the West Side which is known for large fish (averaging 5-7lbs with 10lbs not uncommon! Let em run mon!) and inland ponds and creeks in the middle of the island.

Some areas tend to hold large groups of fish while others are home to larger fish in smaller groups – novice and expert anglers alike have a great time on the flats of South Andros.  We have lots of opportunities for both wading and poling, depending on your preferences and conditions.

In the Bahamas we offer trips of any length and guest can arrive and/or depart on any day of the week depending on availability.

As far as we’re concerned, the learning doesn’t stop when you step off the boat for the day. Members of our team live on site, which we means if you need a hand rigging rods, are curious about tying leaders, or want to learn how to tie a fly for the following morning, we’re with you every step of the way.

General Fishing Information

You won’t need a coat and tie to wear to dinner, and you won’t have to worry about tracking mud on the carpet.  No one will be offended by your cigar smoke or your drink spilled laughing around the campfire.  You will catch fish till your arms are sore and your back aches.

Typically you will fish two guests per guide. Sturdy, 18-foot jet boats are used to get you up and down the Kanektok. Guests will fish from the boat and from shore depending on fishing conditions and your preference. Alaska West’s guides are excellent and can work with advanced anglers as well as first timers.

Most of the Kanektok is wade friendly with few rocks larger than your fist With almost no rocks larger than your fist, older guests have no problem moving around the river. The Kanektok river provides a wide variety of fishing scenarios, ranging from large tidewater sections to small, ‘trout stream’ side channels - most within a 20-minute boat ride from camp. High numbers of fish combined with very fly-fishable water make the Kanektok one of the best spots in the world to target king and silver salmon on a fly rod.

The Kanektok flows 110 miles from its headwaters at Kagati Lake, through the 4.5 million acre Togiak Wilderness Reserve, to the Bering Sea. The river is home to the famous Alaskan "Leopard Bows" – spectacularly colored rainbow trout named for the amazing profusion of spots that cover their body (even their eyes are sometimes spotted!). These wild rainbows attain trophy size and are available throughout the season both in the main river and the many tributaries. Other resident species include Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, and Grayling. The Kanektok also harbors strong runs of all five migratory species of Pacific salmon: king, sockeye, chum, pink, and silver. A typical day of guided fishing at Alaska West is 10-hours long (8:00 AM to 6:00 PM).

Great river for two hand rods!

Ability to smoke and fresh freeze salmon to send home right there at their camp!

Boats

Since your fishing will be done on the Kanektok right out your front door fishing days will not be affected by weather because you don’t have to fly out to fish each day. Instead your guide will drive you up and down the river in one of Alaska West's 18-foot aluminum sleds being pushed by a jet driven engine (no prop engines here let you run over shallow bars and get where the fish are!)

General Fishing Information

Rapids Camp Lodge (RCL) has been in operation for over 15 years and is located smack dab in the middle of Alaska’s Bristol Bay Area – the beating heart of fish country. Situated about 7 miles downstream from Naknek Lake on the Naknek River. RCL offers anglers access to all five species of Pacific salmon and trophy rainbow trout. Right next door is Katmai National Park and Preserve, which contains such famous rivers as the Brooks, Moraine, Battle and Kulik.

RCL is a fly-out lodge – our guests utilize 5 different airplanes to access the many different fishing locations. We have jet boats stashed at various creeks within our 150 mile operating radius, rafts that your guide can pack into small remote streams, as well as a fleet of jet boats that sit in front of the lodge ready to fish our home waters. This gives you the guest to have the option of a dynamic trip with the ability to fish new waters each day. The main thing that separates this fishing program from others is the fact that you design your own trips.  There isn’t any set destination list – we make recommendations based on your goals and desires and you make the decision where you want to go the next day.

This is your vacation – we just help you along the way

Big selling point is Brooks falls in Katmai. Picture Salmon jumping over the falls, with multiple bears chasing them around. Nat Geo type stuff.
