Spring is finally here! Thoughts of trout and salmon fishing are already on most angler’s minds - and especially the ones here at Angler’s Alibi! The guides have been chatting it up - going over fly orders, new gear purchases, and just about every other thing surrounding the season and kicking off 2023!
As stated in previous communiques: The 2022 season was a solid one with strong runs of all 5 salmon species including a nice rebound on king salmon. This influx of kings into the river led to some epic days chasing these giants! We are optimistic that our efforts to practice catch and release on all kings; coupled with not targeting them up high in the river system (where they are trying to spawn) is now paying dividends with stronger returns. Candidly, I don’t think we are completely out of the woods yet, but this uptick in king salmon was a welcome sight to everyone in camp and we can only hope that it will be further enhanced in 2023.
