2015 News and Updates
For 2015, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has posted that Bristol Bay will see a record run for Sockeye Salmon. They are projecting a total run of 53.98 million sockeyes. This is a 40% increase as compared to the 10 year mean. See article in Alaska Dispatch News . The winter has been very mild and spring will come early in the Dillingham area. We look for another incredible season with excellent fishing for Kings, Sockeyes, Chums, Silvers, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Grayling, Dolly Varden and Northern Pike.
We have 3 new boats built for the lodge powered by 60/40 jets. These new boats are better designed for the fly fisherman as they will have a casting station on the front for more stability while fishing.
