7/16 Bristol Bay Report

Limits of Sockeye salmon are being caught everyday still with ease. The salmon are running in massive numbers up the Naknek River and also in surrounding systems like the Alagnak River.

King Fishing has slowed due to the weeks of hot weather but the fishing has began to heat back up with the cold weather and rain.

Rainbow fishing continues to be excellent with the smolt migration in full force with millions of year old sockeye migrating from Naknek Lake to Bristol Bay the Rainbow Trout are gorging themselves on these unfortunate sockeye.

Bear viewing at Brooks Range and Fly out streams is currently fantastic with the opportunity to see a 1 thousand pound brown bear snatching a sockeye out of the air or snorkel underneath a pile of logs and return with a mouth full of fresh salmon.
