Angler’s Alibi fishing has picked up significantly, with several boats enjoying landing over 15 King Salmon daily, and some in the 20 to near 30 mark for the day on conventional gear. Our fly fishermen also had a good week with the Kings, finishing with over 8 Kings landed on flies for one angler with a combined fishing time of 15 hours.
Wow! The Kings have moved up the River in large numbers, and several boats landed over 30 King salmon a day on conventional gear, while the average was in the respectable 10-15 a day range. The 1st run of Chum Salmon has arrived, and provided 2 guests extremely hot action, with over 60 Chums landed via Angler’s Alibi fly fishing in a single day…pass the Advil!
The 2012 Bristol Bay Salmon season has felt the effects of Alaska’s late, cold Spring. Angler’s Alibi has seen a delay of the historic Salmon runs by 2-4 days, with the Sockeye showing up around June 29, and the first good push of Kings around the 4th of July. Sockeye have been arriving in waves, usually marked by higher than normal tides, and have been providing excellent fishing when they are moving through. King Salmon fishing on the fly has been strong since they entered the system, providing steady action throughout the river. Chartreuse and pink fly patterns have been producing on kings with some very aggressive takes on the strip!
