The 2019 drought continues right thru August. Low water conditions have made some fisheries a bit more challenging to nearly inaccessible. The fishing however has been great. Trout fishing in Katmai National Park has been a great choice to fish with the bears. The home waters of the wak, pak and wood are producing good numbers as well. If you're looking for bigger trout the kvichak and one unnamed gem to the west have been consistently producing multiple chances at upper 20's to the coveted 30 inch mark. Silvers are winding down on the wood river system but the Togiak and Goodnews rivers are loaded up with chrome bright silvers that keep pouring in by the day. The Wood Tikchik and Togiak refuge lake systems are fishing well so if you're looking for that big dolly or char with bright fall colors look no further.

Sockeye fishing has been good on the Wood river system and the Togiak. Sight fishing for these chrome cruisers has been fun and anglers have been able to take home daily limits. Multiple ten pound fish have been taken on the Togiak where the average fish is bigger.

King fishing had an ok start but seems to be tapering off fast with only a one or two fish over 20 pounds per day. Unseasonably warm temps has not helped either. A few fish in the upper 30 pound range were caught but we haven’t broke into 40 pound range yet.

Chum Salmon have been pumping into the rivers and are a welcome hook up during slow spells looking for kings.
We have caught some big chrome Ketas while sockeye fishing from gravel bars.

Fishing on the Wak and Pak has been great with lots of Rainbows on dry flies and nymphs some nice Grayling also being caught.

We are hoping for a good Coho season and with all the Sockeye and Chums in the system the Dolly Varden and Rainbow fishing should only get better.

We are back in the full swing of things with our 2019 season underway. We started off by hosting the Bristol Bay Fly Fishing and Guide Academy. Much fun was had by all as a new generation of guides were introduced to the sport fishing industry.
Our first run of fish were king salmon of course and they started out strong in both the Nushagak and the Togiak Rivers. Multiple fish are being caught daily with the biggest so far being 35 pounds. The Nushagak is just starting to slow down however the Togiak and Good News Rivers are starting to see more and more big healthy adults.
Sockeye showed up in mid June with a strong initial run in the Wood River system. Just in the last few days guides have reported limits of these silvery rockets on the Agulowak River which complements the great char fishing we have had there as well. As of July 1st we are seeing lines of sockeye on the Togiak River which is an added bonus to the king fishing.
Spring rainbow trout has been decent with good catches on many of our rivers. Several big bows have been landed in the 22 to 26 inch range and a handful of fish caught even bigger than that!
This year was the second annual Nerqa Derby and it was a great success. The foundation raised about $112K in scholarships!! lots of participants, great food prepared by our outstanding chef, and lots of big fish caught. We had Mack’s group here for the event and although none of them placed everyone enjoyed the competition.
We have had mostly sunny and warm weather so far. Which means we have been able to do multiple Lake Hops and trips to Brooks falls for bear viewing and general sight seeing. A lake hop is an excellent way to experience the true wild nature of Alaska while also catching some lake trout and arctic char and perhaps enjoying a glass of wine in the middle of nowhere in Western Alaska.
Its been a great season so far with a lot more to come. If someone is wondering what is the best time to be up here the answer is simple. Whenever you can get here. there are no bad weeks and every day offers a new opportunity to experience the wonders of this great place.

The Togiak River has continued with a very strong run of big Silvers the past few weeks.
Limits every day with hot fast fish fresh from the sea.

The Pack and Wak Rivers are both in full swing for trout, dollies, grayling, and char. The record run of sockeye in the Wood River system this summer has most spawning flats choked with spawning fish. Bead fishing leaves fisherman in constant high action around and below the abundant spawning sockeye. Trout are the healthiest we have seen in many years on both Pak and Wak with most fish going 16”-22” and swollen like footballs and strength for great battles!

The Kvichak River Trout fishing is also in full fall swing with the tail end of chums and pinks spawning and sockeye starting to peak. So trout fishing has been great with plenty of quality fish being caught and many large fish in the mix. Fish to 30” have been landed this past week and many fish that were never landed or seen but exploded with powerful runs leaving clients in awe were hooked! The Kvichak continues its reputation for legendary fish of dreams!

Eastern Rivers such as Morraine creek, The Battle, Brooks river, and others have been good for trout with sockeye spawn still going but tapering off in some spots. Bears have been a common sight on most trips out east as they are fattening up on salmon for winter!

Local streams have produced spectacular colorful Bows, Dollies, and Char for some great pictures!

As a bonus fall colors and scenery are incredible right now with rich colorful painted landscapes to enjoy while traveling to and from fishing destinations!

The fishing for the last couple weeks has been phenomenal. Silvers are pouring into the rivers in western Alaska and showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. With salmon spawning the fishing for rainbows, dollies, and other egg eating fish has been on fire. The trout are getting plump from gorging on eggs, the dollies and char are taking on their beautiful fall colors. The fishing has been great and will only get more greater.

07/29/2018

The sockeye run remains the strongest that any of us have ever seen. The Agulowak is still producing limits of these delicious silvery fish daily and now they are also running on the Togiak in strong numbers. To catch limits of sockeye this late in the year is extremely rare and one stands a good chance at catching all five species of salmon in one day!

Kings are starting to wind down. However, some of the largest fish of the season were caught this week. There are still bright fish coming in occasionally on the togiak and Goodnews rivers. There are plenty of chums and pinks to keep you entertained while you fish for kings though.

Silvers are starting to show up. A few were caught earlier this week which means any day they will start pouring in any day now.

Trout char and grayling remains excellent as usual. The upper nushagak has been excellent for all three. Sockeye salmon are beginning to really spawn at several destinations and the fish are hungry! This week should be great!
