Did you come fish with us this past season? It was phenomenal! Early season action was hot for rainbow trout, char and grayling, as well as the great King Salmon season we had, (as you saw in our last post)…We are looking forward to another Banner start to 2014 swinging leeches on the Kvichak, Naknek, and the Big Ku for early season trout looking for a Spring time meal. In addition to the big water, we will also enjoy fishing some of the smaller walk in streams and Brooks River for early season dry fly action. Give us a call to chat more about visiting us here in June or July for some great fly fishing in Bristol Bay.
The Lower American is just one of our walk-wade streams. Here you can catch rainbow trout and artic char while enjoying the peaceful tranquility and fishing quality that an Alaskan small stream has to offer.
Early season fishing can offer opportunities for dry fly fishing unlike no other time in Bristol Bay. The small feeder streams to the larger lakes in this region will have strong rainbow trout populations after ice out expecting an meal. We target these fish using 6 weight fly rods on rivers such as Funnel Creek, Idavane Creek and the Little Ku.
The recently released video trailer is still up and can be viewed at the following URL, let us know what you think!
As always, thank you for fishing with us. We’ll see you in Alaska in 2014!
