Happy & Merry Everything!
We hope everyone is keeping warm this holiday season as visions of trout and salmon dance in your heads (what’s this business about sugarplums?!).
It’s December: the perfect time to book with us! Who in your life wouldn’t love an Alaskan adventure tucked neatly into their stocking?
Read on to find out about specials for 2017, improvements coming soon, and how the Kvichak looks after a visit from Jack Frost.
2017 Family Special
It’s back! When you a book a full price trip for any scheduled week in June or July 2017, anyone under the age of 18 is half off. Son, daughter, close relative, neighbor… If you’ve booked before, you know this is a fantastic time of year for Kings AND Sockeye, as well as great bear viewing and trout fishing opportunities.
*Upgrades! for 2017*
For your enjoyment, we are ADDING A SAUNA to Alaska Rainbow Lodge! A longtime request is becoming a reality and a wonderful way to relax after a hard day of fishing. For the more adventurous, the sauna will be close enough to the river for our version of a “polar plunge.”
Winter @ the Lodge
Russ, our caretaker, is enjoying the onset of Winter. He oversaw our fuel delivery in October and says everything is going perfectly well. Unlike last year, it looks like there is actually going to be a Winter in Bristol Bay! The temperatures have been far below freezing for the last couple of weeks and the river has finally frozen up solid. The pictures look beautiful but give us the chills! The photo above is a time lapse of the Kvichak river going from slush to frozen overnight.
Tight Lines and Warm Wishes,
Chip and Amanda Ferguson (and Wyatt and Tango, too!)
