Alaska Kings on the Nushagak River!

I just returned from guiding on the Nushagak River near Dillingham, Alaska. If you want to catch a lot of kings (chinook) in a remote setting, this is a great place to do it! If you are interested in joining me there in 2016, let me know.

Now I’m gearing up to fish the Rogue River near Gold Beach, Oregon. Conditions are lining up to make this another great year for catching bright, hard fighting kings in tidewater. These silver bullets average close to 20# and every year I have fish around 40# caught by some lucky angler(s)! Join me this summer by calling and booking a trip.

January 1st. found me on the Rogue with clients Wren and Risha. We had a great morning with five winter steelhead hooked and four landed by noon! Then we headed back to Gold Beach to watch some football.

The winter steelheading has been very good recently as the water conditions are good. When the steelheading begins to taper off in late February, it’ll be time to start planning for the first springers.
