Mid to Lat July at the Royal Coachman AK

The Chum spawn is at its peak and the Sockeye Salmon are just starting to dig their reds in some of our fisheries. Definitely something we look forward as this is the start of the best Rainbow, Char, Dolly Varden fishing of the season. This is going to be our last week of King Season and the start of the Silver run. Amazing how fast everything changes here!

Mid July Royal Coachman Alaska

Fishing has been good this week for most species we are targeting. The Lake Trout bite is winding down and the Char fishing was a little tougher this week but the Dolly Varden and Rainbow Trout fishing was great this week. We didn't catch many big bows but we did get some good numbers and were able to catch some skating a mouse on the surface. We did fish for King Salmon a little but our better fisheries were high and muddy due to last weeks rain but this week should be great as the rivers clear and drop.

Late June and Early July at the Royal Coachman AK

Over the last two weeks in Alaska, lots of changes are occurring in our river and lake systems. The King, Chum, and Sockeye salmon runs are in full swing and we have already seen some chum and sockeye spawning in some rivers! The Northern Pike fishing is still great but starting to slow a little. We have caught a couple of big Shefish, which are quit rare for us and are a great fighting fish. Lakers are still feeding heavy on salmon smolt. The char and rainbow fishing has slowed down a little this week in some of the systems but he dolly varden fishing is just starting to heat up.
