What an amazing few weeks of fishing we have had here in late August and September! The rainbow trout fishing can be described with one simple word – EPIC! Lots of fish are being caught on our home river, the world famous Kvichak.

Many of the rainbows being caught by our clients are over 25 inches and we have even added some 30 inch monsters to the list! Here are a few more photos of some very happy clients showing off their catch.

This is a great time of the year to catch these big rainbows from the Iliamna, Naknek, and Kukaklek drainages. We still have openings for 2013 so give myself, Ron or Sharon a call or email and book your trip for the best rainbow trout fishing in the world! Also don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and share us with your friends.
