Fishing with Big Dave's Alaskan Bush Lodge
Rainbow Trout are known to follow the Chinook Salmon as they spawn. These greedy, voracious eaters enjoy dining on King Salmon roe. Egg pattern flies work well for Rainbows.
The Sockeye begins to flood the local rivers by Mid-July. Sockeye or Red Salmon are fighters. These happen to be one of the top eating salmon too.
The Silver or Coho Salmon arrive at the beginning of August and stay through September. These are the fiercest of the salmon for fishing. They strike hard and display using wild acrobatics.
The Dolly Varden often follow the Silver Salmon. Dolly Varden are beautiful, brightly spotted fish that are in the salmon family. They too are fierce fighters.
The Rainbow, Dolly's, and Arctic Graylings are present year round, but their feeding frenzy intensifies when the salmon start to spawn.
