HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK
First time guests, Casey, Gage, and Lane simultaneously hooked and landed a grayling, rainbow, and dolly in the same run while Logan battled a large grayling on the other side of the creek – the elusive side channel slam and quadruple hook up!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Standing in a river in Alaska while watching your 13-year-old son fight and catch a salmon is something every father should experience.”- Casey from Idaho.
Notable sightings include yellow warblers, Pacific loons, Long-tailed Jaegers, American redstarts, Black-capped chickadees, and a moose.
COMMENTS FOR THE WEEK
The water levels are dropping and the fish are getting more competitive and aggressive by the day, the rainbows especially. It’s honestly dealer’s choice on flies, they’re eating everything, but as first year guide, Robb, says, “When in doubt, mouse it out!”
