A Rainbow of Species
All the action begins in August. The rainbows and char have been feasting on sockeye eggs for five to six weeks and are beginning to look like footballs. Guides will show you the shadowy rainbows and char lying just aside of the bright red spawning sockeyes waiting to pick up the fresh salmon eggs. There are few fish that fight with more tenacity than these huge rainbows and char.
By the second week, silver salmon begin ascending remote steams from the Cook Inlet weighing anywhere from 8-17 lbs. These fighting, jumping fish have virtually nowhere to flee but vertically because the streams are seldom more than 10 yards wide.
It is not unusual to hook 35 - 50 salmon a day. Once the silvers wear you out you can fish for the sea run dolly varden that follow the salmon to feast on their eggs.
For anglers up to a wrestling match, a day trip is offered for halibut and Northern pike. We fish for Halibut in 20 to 50 feet of water just off the coast of the Cook Inlet. For the pike angler, we offer a short 30-minute floatplane ride to a lake where we catch numbers of pike with some monsters being caught each summer. Last summer a guest caught 27 pike over 45 inches with a 52-inch monster!
To top off all this great fishing, we offer floatplane day trips to Lake Clark National Park, a short 20-30 minute flight from the lodge. In what we call a “Park Tour” you will fish several different lakes for Arctic grayling, Arctic char, lake trout and pike. Most people enjoy this trip because of the awesome mountain scenery Lake Clark National Park has to offer as well as the Dall sheep, moose and brown bear to view.
Our guests return to our lodge each night for a dinner of Alaskan king crab, prime rib, pork chops, halibut, salmon or similar. Each evening we will fillet, vacuum pack and freeze your catch and upon your departure, send you away with not only some awesome fishing memories but also a box loaded with fresh fillets for some unbelievable eating.
Prime August dates still available are 14-21 and 21-28. The trip runs $6,250 for 6 ˝ days fishing. Call 1-888-891-3474 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to request a brochure.
