It’s a Pink Salmon year and the numbers of them entering the river is insane. You can catch as many of pinks as you could possibly ever want to in a day and THEN SOME. It’s impossible to have a slow day of salmon fishing when the pinks are here!

The Silver run didn’t last as long as it normally does and the numbers weren’t as high as last year but clients are still hooking limits. Whether they’re fishing flies or gear.

The rainbow trout fishing on the main river is a bit slower in the first couple of weeks as our clients are focused on wanting to target salmon on the Naknek and fill their fish boxes to take home. 

The last couple of weeks of August the sockeye are full spawn, beads and flesh flies both became extremely effective. Trophy rainbow trout are being caught daily.  

We are using these techniques now on the smaller streams throughout the Katmai and Becharof wilderness. These trips are mostly fly out, where we are catching high numbers of dolly varden, rainbow trout and grayling.
