Who would have thought back in March, April, and even May that Anglers Alibi would even open for business this year?! Thanks to some fortuitous last-minute decisions by the State of Alaska and some very patient clients – we had an epic 2020 season! We ran at 90% occupancy, and those who made the trip were rewarded with a fantastic fishery this year. Our staff and guides could have very easily bailed on this season as things were looking very dubious in mid-May, but instead took a leap of faith with me and to them I owe a huge debt of gratitude. (More on that later.) Let’s talk fishing…
Early July saw our first guests and a huge run of sockeye salmon. Clients who tired of sockeye fishing or king fishing often audibled and fished rainbow trout on mouse fly patterns. If you have not experienced seeing a big rainbow whack a mouse pattern on the surface – that alone should inspire you to return. Guests who came later in the summer had great silver salmon fishing and the best big, TROPHY rainbow trout that we have ever seen at Angler's Alibi! This season will go down in the books as one to remember for sure!
