What a terrific time it has been these past couple of weeks! Last week one group of guests estimated their group of three boated nearly 500 fish in four days. The weather was a little bit on the chilly side and it felt as if Silver Salmon fishing was soon upon us. Lots of big roaring fires in the woodstove at he main lodge were in order on those days. The weather has gotten better and the fishing, wildlife viewing, and scenery is incredible. Seeing 7 bears a day is not uncommon and catching fish until your arm is sore has been occurring on a very regular basis. A pair of guests who have been coming to Alaska for well over twenty years commented on their stay that they have had the best fishing day in their entire life and look forward to their return. Alaska’s Department of Fish and Game has counter 800,000 pink salmon in the river and several hundreds of thousands of Chum Salmon. The Grayling and Arctic Char have swollen bellies from gorging themselves on the abundant salmon eggs, but still have enough of an appetite to crush beads on the ultralight. All in all it has been simply marvelous!
