by Michael Bales, Head Guide for Alaska Rainbow Lodge

We’ve had another fantastic week of fishing here at Alaska Rainbow Lodge!!  In addition to the rivers in Katmai Park, our coastal fisheries are in great shape and producing some excellent days!  The weather around the entire Bristol Bay region has been beautiful with mid-day temperatures in the 70’s!! We have been catching rainbow trout, arctic char, grayling and silver salmon.  We have also been shooting a new HD video for ARL this week in some fantastic locations.  Here are a few sneak peak photos form the upcoming video.
