A message from Ron Hayes: Book for June & July
You need to come fishing with me in June or July.
Trust me on this. You NEED to come fishing in one of these months. The weather is the best we have all year, you can dry fly fish and the sheer number of fish is never higher. Here are a few photos to pique your interest…
Call me today. I’ll save a spot for you and your friends.
Yes, there are bears in the rivers you will fish. We watched this big boy for about 30 minutes while fishing the opposite side if the river. He never moved an inch until a salmon came close and then SPLASH! That bear was a crafty fisherman.
We were fishing for Leopard Rainbows, but occasionally hooked up with a Sockeye. Most of the time we broke off intentionally. But on this rare occasion, this Sockeye was landed on a Sage 6wt. Something we don’t recommend, but it sure was fun.
This was my friend’s first time to go fly fishing. And his first trip to Alaska. I think he’s hooked, and hooked up with a 28-inch Rainbow!
That’s Mike Dragon, a guide for Alaska Rainbow Lodge. He’s taking us up the Kamishak to fish for Silvers and Char. Fishing that day in mid August was a National Geographic day. Perfect weather, hundreds of Char and bears just about everywhere you looked. Best day ever with a fly rod.
