7 day weather forecast for Quinhagak,

 

LOWER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 14TH TO 28TH

WATER TEMPERATURE AND CLARITY:
The river is now 12 inches higher than it was when we got here in early June and has come up around 18 inches in the last two weeks. With all the rains we have had it is super high and muddy with about six to eight inches of clarity most of the week. By mid week we had about 16 inches of clarity. The temperature has been from 44 to 46 degrees.

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
WOW!! It rained like crazy Sunday and Monday. On Tuesday it gave us a break and quit raining and the sun finally came out. Wednesday and Thursday we had scattered showers and overcast. Friday was by far the nicest day with lots of sunshine.

HOT FLY OF THE WEEK:
With the colored water the flash fly has been working best for the Silvers.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
The highlight of the week for me was our guests. They were very understanding and had great attitudes considering the tough conditions with the river being out of shape and the terrible weather that we had. The two 13 year old twin girls and their older sister were a lot of fun on the river and in camp. They were real troopers considering the weather and super kids!

WILDLIFE SPOTTED:
As always we are seeing lots of birds: Mallards, Teal, Pintails, Widgeon, Harlequins and Geese. We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, Ospreys, Tundra Swans and Great Horned Owls.


COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
The first two days this week were very tough due to the muddy, high water and poor visibility. The rain finally slowed down and the river cleared up enough to improve the Silver fishing the rest of the week. The Rainbow fishing was pretty much out of the question for the first half of the week with the high water, then by Wednesday the river started to clear some and we started doing well on the Bows! This week was the highest that I have ever seen the river in August. It is hard to believe our summer is over on the Kanektok but we are all looking forward to getting to Kodiak and ripping on some Steelhead!

LOWER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 31st TO AUGUST 7th

WATER TEMPERATURE AND CLARITY:
The clarity of the river went from 18 inches at the beginning of the week to 6 feet of visibility then back to 2 feet. Due to all the rain we had last week the river came up over a foot. The river temperature has been from 44 to 48 degrees most of the week and is back on the rise again.

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
The weather this week has been great for the most part. Sunday through Wednesday we had nice weather during the day with some light rain showers at night. Thursday and Friday it started to rain again and the river is on the rise again.

HOT FLY OF THE WEEK:
The G-String was on fire this week for the Silvers and Pinks and Egg Patterns for the Rainbows and Char.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
The highlight of the week for us was having our good friends and guests from Columbus, Ohio in camp again. They are always a great group of guys to go out fishing with and they know how to have a good time. Thanks guys!!


QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
We’ve been coming so long it is like a family reunion week. Chip Liebert – Columbus, OH.

WILDLIFE SPOTTED:
A few Bears were seen this week along the river’s edge. We also have a Bear that fishes across from camp every night. As always we are seeing lots of birds: Mallards, Teal, Pintails, Widgeon, Harlequins and Geese. We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, Ospreys, Tundra Swans and Great Horned Owls.


COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
The fishing this week was great! We had good Silver fishing and excellent fishing for Pinks. Lots of top water action for Dollies, Pinks and Silvers! As the week went along the Silvers really started to stack up in the holes. The Arctic Char fishing this week was excellent and we caught a lot of big fish that are starting to turn into their spawning colors. The Rainbow fishing was good this week but tougher than usual due to the cold water temps, colored water and rising river. Overall we had a great week of angling and good times with our good friends from Ohio.

LOWER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 7th TO 14th

WATER TEMPERATURE AND CLARITY:
The clarity of the river has been terrible this week due to all the rains. The river temperature has been from 44 to 46 degrees. The height of the river is almost where it was when we first arrived here in early June.

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
Again, it pretty much rained every day and night and the river came up another 6 inches this week. It just won’t give us a break this summer. The weather we have been having this summer reminds me a lot of what we use to get in the 80’s and 90’s. Finally on Thursday evening the sun came out and we had a beautiful day on Friday!! ? We can only hope we have a great week of weather next week.

HOT FLY OF THE WEEK:
Purple Egg Sucking Leech

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
We had a great week angling with our guests this week despite all the rain and bad weather.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
Fishing is unbelievable! Food was great. The Duncan’s make a wilderness experience extremely comfortable. Paul Spillers – Boise, ID.

WILDLIFE SPOTTED:
The Geese and Ducks are already flying around in huge flocks. As always we are seeing lots of birds: Mallards, Teal, Pintails, Widgeon, Harlequins and Geese. We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, Ospreys, Tundra Swans and Great Horned Owls.


COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
The Silver fishing this week was very good. We had lots of new fish pushing in every day. We are still catching Pinks and they are still coming in pretty strong along with the Silvers. The Arctic Char fishing was great this week and they are really starting to turn into their spawning colors. We still caught a few Rainbow’s this week despite of the river being colored and rising but you really had to work at it and target them in the smaller braids where the river is a little clearer.

The dirty flesh and peachy egg patterns have been working great this week for trout and dollies. Pink bunny patterns have been working great for Kings, Chums, and Pink Salmon.

COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK

Man, what a cold wet week. The fishing was still good in spite of the conditions. The river is full of big Dolly Varden. The Chum and Pink salmon fishing was very good also. We had a fantastic group of guests this week and everyone fished hard and caught lots of fish.

LOWER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 17th to 24th

WATER TEMPERATURE AND CLARITY:
The clarity of the river is great. The river temperature has been from 46 in the mornings to 48 degrees in the evenings. The river only came up around a couple inches as the tundra was so dry due to all the dry weather we have had.

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
We had very wet cold windy weather pretty much all week. There was lots of drizzly rain and cloudy weather with really bad light for sight fishing.

HOT FLY OF THE WEEK:
The Flesh fly has been working great all week for Rainbows again. Pretty much anything Pink was working great for all the salmon. Mid week the egg pattern was working great for Rainbows and Arctic Char.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
The highlight of the week for me was having the four teenagers from Arkansas in camp. They were the nicest most polite, well mannered kids that we have ever had in camp. Between our group from England and group from Arkansas it made for a real enjoyable week of angling and evening entertainment. However the guides still RULE at Arizona Washers. Sorry guys! ?

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
The ultimate father-son trip! What more could you ever want in a week’s fishing. Scott Ford – Little Rock, AR.

WILDLIFE SPOTTED:
We saw a few Bears again this week. Also saw two Bull Moose cross the river while we were fishing. As always we are seeing lots of birds: Mallards, Teal, Pintails, Widgeon, Harlequins and Geese. We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, Ospreys, Tundra Swans and Great Horned Owls.


COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
The King run has slowed down but the guests that are still targeting them are still picking up a few every day. The Chums, Sockeye and Pinks are still marching very strong all day long and they are biting great! We are also getting tons of Arctic char marching right along with the salmon, mid week they finally started to slow down and start holding on the shallow bars where we can target them with the egg patterns. The Rainbow fishing this week was pretty good even with the cloudy days and colder water temperatures.

The Bears have come out of the wood work, this week. Pretty much every day we are all seeing Bears along the river.

We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, Ospreys, Tundra Swans and Great Horned Owls.


COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
The Kings are still coming in but very slow; we seem to be getting pushes about every two to three days. We are starting to see quite a few Kings stacking up in all the deep holes getting ready to spawn. The Chums, Sockeyes and Pinks are in thick and non-stop marching. Along with the marching salmon we are seeing lots of marching Arctic Char. They are just starting to slow down and hold on all the shallow bars. The Rainbow fishing is unbelievable again this week.

LOWER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 3rd to 10th

WATER TEMPERATURE AND CLARITY:
The clarity of the river was great till Monday when it started to rain. The river came up three inches and was colored up through Wednesday. On Thursday the weather got nice and the river dropped right back to where it was and got crystal clear. The river temperature this week was from 44 to 55 degrees depending on the weather we had.

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday was overcast, cloudy and raining. On Wednesday the weather broke and we could finally see the sun. Thursday and Friday was bright and sunny and got to 80 degrees.

HOT FLY OF THE WEEK:
The Dali-Lama was on fire this week along with large bright streamers for the Kings.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
The highlight of the week for me was Sunday when I fished with Dick and Eric in the lower river for Kings. We hooked 16 and landed 6 that were all from 20lbs to 30lbs and they were all chrome bright with sea-lice.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
The secret to fishing is to fish where the fish are. Dick Sale, OR.

WILDLIFE SPOTTED:
We still haven’t seen a Bear this year but have heard from our friends in Quinhagak that there is quite a few down low on the beach. As always we are seeing lots of birds: Mallards, Teal, Pintails, Widgeon, Harlequins and Geese. We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, Ospreys, Tundra Swans and Great Horned Owls.


COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
The King fishing this week was good, especially at the beginning of the week. The kings are really starting to stack up in good numbers. We are getting lots of Sockeyes and Chums and the Humpies are really starting to roll in. We are also starting to see lots of big Dollies marching in with the salmon. The Rainbow fishing was a little slow at the beginning of the week due to the cold water temperature and colored water but as the week went on and the river warmed up it really turned on! We caught lots of Bows this week and one was in the double digits! Darren had a guest catch a Bow that he said was the biggest Bow he has seen on this river in twenty years. John had a guest hook and almost land a Bow in the lower river that he thought was pushing 12 plus pounds.

UPPER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
REPORTING FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 3 TO JULY10

WATER TEMP AND CLARITY
From Sunday through Wednesday the morning water temp was 44 degrees and it warmed up to 47 or 48 by late afternoon. The river also had a little color on Wednesday. Thursday was a nice warm day, the river was clear and by late afternoon the water temp was 52 degrees! Friday was sunny and warm for most of the day.

WEATHER CONDITIONS
The first four days of this week were cold and wet! We had daytime temps in the 40s and 50s. Add some rain and wind and it makes for some tough weather conditions. Fortunately the weather started breaking up on Wednesday and by Thursday and Friday it was sunny and the air temp reached the mid 70s.

HOT FLY OF THE WEEK
We fished a lot of wet flies for the first four days of this trip because of the cold water. The Olive Sculpin’s were hot and Flesh patterns were a close second. On Thursday and Friday we used the mouse pattern a lot and it was working great! This warm weather has really turned on the Rainbows!

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK
This is going to sound funny but I think this whole group would agree that the highlight of the week has been the last two days of sunshine! Seeing the river on a sunny day after four days of rain is like being on a different river. You can see all the fish that you couldn’t see on the cloudy days and the trout fishing is much, much better!.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
The most exceptional group of guides I’ve ever fished with!! Anna Riggs Little Rock, AR

A really fantastic fishing experience. Good fishing, good company, good camp, excellent food!! What else could you want? Andy Dermott England

COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK

We had a seasoned crew of fisherman this week that have a fished Alaska several times. During the bad weather everyone had good gear, stayed warm and dry (no complaining) and fished hard. Because of this we did very well considering the conditions. When we finally did get a couple of nice days they were certainly well deserved and everyone caught a lot of fish.

UPPER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 26 TO JULY 3

 

WATER TEMP AND CLARITY
The water temp was 40 50 degrees. The river is gin clear and dropping like a rock!

WEATHER CONDITIONS
We had a little bit of everything this week! It was cold in the mornings and mostly overcast, although it did rain a little and we did see the sun on several afternoons. The river is in perfect shape and filling up with Kings, Chums, and Sockeye! All we need is a couple of days of warm weather to get the water temp above 50 for the first time and the trout fishing will be off the hook!

HOT FLY OF THE WEEK
It is no surprise that the hot fly for trout so far has been the mouse pattern. We have actually been fishing mouse patterns without a hook! It is a blast to have the trout take it over and over again! Pink bunny patterns and Teeny Nymphs are working well for Kings and Chums.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK
Our first group of guests will come in on Saturday. We have been setting camp and doing a little fishing. We went up river to the Falcon rock area on Wednesday and on the way up we saw a Caribou on the side of the river. Later that day as we were floating down river we ran into the same Caribou and he stayed within about 100 yards while we ate lunch. We had a great time fishing the hookless mouse pattern!!!!

QUOTE OF THE WEEK


WILDLIFE
We have not seen any bear yet but we did see a Caribou this week. There are lots of birds along the river including Bald Eagles, Mallards, Pintail, Widgeon, Green wing Teal, Canadian Geese, Tundra Swans, Mergansers, Common Loons, Sandhill Cranes, Arctic Terns, Long tail Jaegers Glaucous winged Gulls, Ruffed Legged Hawks, Kestrels, Harlequin ducks, Osprey, Peregrine falcons, Golden crowned Sparrows, Swallows, Common snipe, Greater yellow leg, Ptarmigan, Ravens, and Crows.

LOWER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT
FOR WEEK OF JUNE 26th to JULY 3rd

WATER TEMPERATURE AND CLARITY:
The clarity of the river is as good as I have seen for this time of year. The river has dropped around 5 inches this week. The river temperature has been from 45 to 51 degrees this week.

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
The first half of the week was mostly overcast and temperatures from 55 to 70 degrees. As the week went on the weather got colder and we had some rain but mostly just light showers.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
The Rainbow fishing was Awesome this week!! We had a lot of guests spending half the day to all day chasing Bows.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
"The Rainbow fishing was so good I was torn between that and catching Kings- something I never thought I’d say." Dale Miller-Yakima, WA

WILDLIFE SPOTTED:
We didn’t see any Bears this week but did see a bull Caribou running down the middle of the river. As always we are seeing lots of birds: Mallards, Teal, Pintails, Widgeon, Harlequins and Geese. We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, two pairs of Ospreys and Tundra Swans.

COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
The fishing for Kings this week started out as strong as ever but tapered off drastically during the week, then on Friday we got another good push of Kings. The Chum fishing was great and we are seeing lots of fish stacked on all the gravel bars. The Sockeyes are marching well also. Our Rainbow fishing this week was un-real; we spent a lot of time chasing the Bows around. They are very healthy for this early in the season.

LOWER BASE CAMP FISHING REPORT FOR SET-UP
JUNE 11TH TO 14TH

WATER TEMPERATURE AND CLARITY:
The clarity of the river is good for this early. It is perfect for fishing for Kings! We haven’t had a chance to take the water temperature yet but it feels very cold. Can’t wait to get that shower setup?

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
There is still quite a bit of snow in the mountains as it has been melting slowly due to the cold weather we are having. It is not bad during the day, probably around 45 to 50 degrees but is getting very cold at night. With the last two days of high winds it feels like it is in the thirty’s. We haven’t seen much sun, mostly overcast with the occasional rain shower and a couple days of super strong winds.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
The day we arrived we were opening up containers, moving boats and checking fluids on all the 4-wheelers and truck and about 8:00PM all the guides started talking about how hungry they were. Low and behold the village came alive with people racing all around us to give us a big welcome home and then they invited us to their after spring clean-up PIZZA party and dance that they have every year. The village has a clean-up program where they get all the kids to completely clean up the entire village. The top 10 kids that pickup the most garbage, all get a new bike. We just happened to bring along the two bikes that we donate to the clean-up program on the first planes. This was lucky timing on our part.

It was quite a welcome party, one I will never forget. They had flown in 50 pizzas from Bethel. Needless to say not a lot of work got done the rest of the night and the hotdogs went back in the cooler. The younger guides spent the rest of the evening showing all the kids how to race through mud puddles (on their brand new bikes) and then they decided to build them a jump out of some rotten old piece of plywood and 2x4’s. Luckily no one ended up getting hurt, well not too bad, there were a few crashes and skinned up bodies.


WILDLIFE SPOTTED:
As always we are seeing lots of birds: Mallards, Teal, Pintails, Widgeon, Harlequins and Geese. We are also seeing all the shore birds along with lots of Eagles, Ospreys, Tundra Swans and Great Horned Owls. The only Bears that we have seen were on the flight down from Bethel to Quinhagak. I spotted a very large Bear and pointed it out to the pilot, for some reason John didn’t think that was such a good idea.


COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK:
We got to Quinhagak on Friday night and started setting up the boats on Saturday. Sunday morning we went up river for a test run and all looks well, we had to cut our way through a channel but eventually made it to camp. The river is about average height for what it has been for the last 10 years. The color is perfect for fishing Kings. Camp is going up quickly this year with all the experienced guides. We are about a day ahead of schedule as everything has gone very smoothly.

If all goes well during setup and we have a few days before our season starts June 26th we will try and get a few days of fishing in and get you a fishing report. As we are driving up and down the river hauling gear we are seeing lots of Kings rolling in all of the same good holes. It is always hard when you see those big Kings rolling and you have work to do and no rods together. The fish racks on the edge of the river are starting to fill up with Kings?
