Mid to Late July in Alaska

We're still dealing with wet rainy weather, but the fishing is still pretty awesome.  It's just a matter of being able to fly to our destinations due to the poor flying conditions.  Our B, C and D options have been really good though for the most part, its nice to have those kind of secondary options here!  Eggs have been dropping for the past couple of weeks in certain locations and we are just now starting to see Sockeye spawning, Rainbow season is about to really begin!  We also had our first pushes of Silvers showing up in the Nushagak this week.

Mid June to early July at the Royal Coachman Lodge

Lots of water this spring from a big snow pack and plenty of rain.  Some of our fisheries are not fishing as well due to the high water while others are thriving with the extra flows.  Thats one of the cool things about working here, each year brings different circumstances that can affect the rivers we fish and in turn the way we fish.  It keeps it interesting and fresh after eleven years of working here.  Its good to be back in Alaska!
