Mid August at the Coachman

The Silver run has been down a little this year but we are still getting plenty of them. Lots of eggs dropping everywhere which = lots of nice fish eating them and being caught! All the rivers are in full spawn mode now which really opens up a lot more fisheries for Rainbows, Char, and Dollies. We are also starting to catch a lot of really big Char as you can see in the photos! These things are brutal fighters and take you into the backing multiple times during the fight! Lots of fun!

Late July and Early August at the Royal Coachman AK

We finished up with our last week of King Salmon and are now focusing on the fresh Silvers making their way inland from Bristol Bay. This past week was hit and miss for the silvers but it is the first week of the run so the numbers should increase daily. The Rainbow, Dolly, and Char fishing has been great this past week and should only continue to get better from here on out.
