The first two weeks of fishing here in Bristol Bay have been amazing. We have been lucky enough to have weather with temperatures in the high 80’s and blue bird skies making for some excellent days on the water and some great flying weather. The King Salmon have started their annual migration into the Naknek & Nushagak Rivers and we are catching them! The beginning of the season has also seen some spectacular trout fishing. We have been catching them on dry flies, leeches, and even mousing on few of our area rivers.
