The fishing has been good the past couple weeks especially big pike, sheefish, king salmon, chum salmon, and sockeye salmon. This past Saturday we fought a king for 3 1/2 hours that took us five river miles downstream, it broke the 8wt rod during the fight but we still managed to fight it for another half hour with half a rod. It finally broke us off after what was the most brutal, yet amazing fight I have ever been a part of in my fishing career! The fish was estimated at around 50 lbs and would have been a lodge record on a fly. I was able to touch it with the net a couple times but it never saw the inside of the net unfortunately. Also I was honored to have my friend Skeet Scoville here as a guest this week and he experienced some phenomenal fishing, I have a feeling he will be back here soon!
