Alaska, June/July 2015

This river still holds a good amount of King salmon. The lodge is situated right at the upper edge of tidewater – seven miles from Goodnews bay where the river flows into the Bering sea.

The Kings I caught were often really chrome and sea liced. Theses fish are fresh and feisty, and they challenge your angling skills. Fishing for Kings was really good.

Every day I had some hook-ups and landed some good Kings. I had a 40 and a 45 pound as my biggest fish and – believe me! – they are really hard fighters. There is also good fishing for leopard trouts and graylings in the upper part of the river. Goodnews – I will come back!
