Our main quest for this week are wild Pacific Salmon. Specifically Kings, Chums and Sockeyes. Our secondary quest is Pink Salmon, Arctic Char (Dolly Varden) and Leopard Rainbow trout.

My brother Mike and I shared our Kanektok River – Lower River Base Camp (LBC) adventure with seven other guests – Kevin from Dallas, John from Wisconsin, and Britts – Malcolm, Shane, Peter, Gary and Tim. What a wild and diverse group! Meal times were almost as much fun as the fishing.

The Lower Base Camp was staffed by a super team: Brad Duncan – the camp manager and Rebecca – the camp cook, were mainstays of the camp. The fishing guides – who also doubled as assistant cooks , waiters, dishwashers and general camp hosts – were an amazing bunch of guys. Their goal is for all the guests to have a great, worry free week. They exceeded everyone’s expectations!
