This first week of the season is for anglers who want to experience wilderness solitude on the Kanektok River in the early summer when fishing is hot and the weather is mild. The upper river offers healthy populations of Arctic Grayling and Rainbow Trout that are keen to inhale dry flies and streamers. Dries and especially mouse patterns are an exciting way to target the trophies of the upper river in a lush landscape blooming with life. As we make our way down river, we intercept migrating Sockeye, King, and Chum Salmon, plus sea run Dolly Varden Char. The challenging Sockeye are taken with nymphs and are strong, acrobatic fighters plus an extraordinary fillet for your riverside salmon dinners. The Dollies search for the eggs of migrating salmon and readily take egg patterns but we also love to target these fish with streamers and skated top water flies. There is nothing more fun than top water Dolly eats. We will swing streamers to Kings in the middle and lower river and experience the eat of that adrenaline fueled tank which will make your muscles sore before you slide into your sleeping bag. In the lower Kanektok, fish will be pouring into the river and we will intercept them on our 100-mile journey to the village of Quinhagak. We enjoy the wildlife along the river as the tundra blooms. The staff will set up camp in some of the most beautiful wilderness scenery you can imagine. This week showcases the great diversity of the Kanektok River for fishing, wildlife viewing, and landscapes. You don’t want to miss this!
This is the both the best week for camping with your family and best week of the year to hunt trophy Goodnews River Rainbows, Arctic Grayling, and King Salmon in Solitude! We’ll float and fish the Middle Fork of the world renowned Goodnews. The scenery is sublime. The staff will set up camp in some of the most beautiful wilderness scenery you can imagine. The middle Fork is an “intimate river”, smaller water, shorter casts, and more wildlife than other Bristol Bay rivers. It’s an ideal river for a family, a group of pals, a couple, and especially a parent(s) with a young angler(s). It’s remoteness makes it a true adventure. This week tends to have the best weather of the entire Bristol Bay season with sun drenched days and midnight sun nights. We’ll fish dries in the headwaters and streamers throughout. We will sight fish to King Salmon- the most powerful and challenging freshwater fish in North America and take trophy Sea Run Dolly Varden Char. 6 Days and 5 nights of Rainbow, Grayling, Dolly Varden, Sockeye, Chum, and magnificent Kings. Because this is the most popular week for a family with young anglers and with anglers who want a shorter trip it books full very early.
