June is the early season, July is the time of the salmon arrival, in August the salmon are spawning and the rainbow trout are feeding,  September is the late season, and we are chasing the trophies….We have written about it and you have read about it.

Alaska Rainbow Lodge

Greeting guests at the lodge upon arrival.

This is what we expect here in Alaska during the summers, flying and fishing all day, planning the next day’s adventure that evening and getting up to do it again.  People are always asking the guides here what draws them to this every season…It’s certainly not the money or even the glory or accolades, The answer is simple! We love what we do. For those who have not experienced this state of being, it is hard to describe.  The tundra, the rivers and the oceanic coast are calling, all winter long, frozen and awaiting the summer regeneration.

Alaska Rainbow Lodge Trout Fishing

Rainbow Trout fishing on a raft trip to Moraine Creek can be unforgettable.

We get to meet people from all over the world with a common bond, a connection to the waters that flow through us and are a part of us and hopefully a few fish and memories of a place, – A place called Alaska…Join us, be a part of this magical land, the native people have been here for thousands of years, and HOPEFULLY thousands more.  I’d also like to invite you to stay up to date with the Pebble Mine developments by visiting the Save Bristol Bay project website.
