It looks like we will definitely have higher water than average due to the above normal snow pack in the mountains surrounding Bristol Bay Alaska. We at Angler’s Alibi feel that on high water years, the king salmon and silver salmon hold up a bit longer in the tidewater section of the river where we are located. This means for every tide, the river is not affected up above camp at all, resulting in salmon that do not take the tidal push on their first day of their return to freshwater quite as high in the Alagnak River system as they would on a normal water year. So, basically they will be in the tidewater a little bit longer providing anglers a larger time frame to catch the mighty king, silver, sockeye, chum and pink salmon that call the Alagnak River home.
Angler’s Alibi, a deluxe tent lodge in the Bristol Bay area specializing in fly fishing for Alaska salmon, are looking forward to another great season, and maybe even better than we had in 2011! If that is even possible?
