t's been a very busy couple weeks at Alagnak Lodge, one of the premier Alaska fly fishing lodges. There was a typhoon, dolphin, and sunsets that lasted for hours. We even saw a sunrise. Bears are everywhere. The zombie chum salmon run has begun as the spawned-out chums are making their way back downstream, dying while we still occasionally catch bright chrome chums loaded with sea lice, which is why we have so many bears.
Busy Busy Busy! At this point in the season, everyone has seen one of the wolves at least once. To see a wolf in the wild is a pretty incredible experience for most of us. We all have more than one close-call bear story to tell. The bald eagles are flying over in full force with nesting materials. Bacon, the camp porcupine, is regularly sighted as we have its schedule figured out.
