Although the camera man who shot this image is dead after trying to get to close for a photo opp. We do appreciate his sacrifice, as it is rare or maybe just not wise to capture a Bristol Bay grizzly feasting on a Moose.
Dinning is a big part of any fishing trip to a lodge. We are proud of our culinary program at ASL and are very happy to have Chef Alex Chase working in the kitchen. he, along with his crew of Lorraine, Michele, Sara, Breanna, and Tue, help cap off an excellent day of being on some of Alaska's most productive and beautiful rivers by creating mouth-watering meal presentations.
A couple of pics from the successful first few days of the season. These two monster native rainbow Trout were caught by two guests at Alaska Sportsman's Bear Trail Lodge on the NakNek River. Pretty sweet way to start the season!
The fishing season in Bristol Bay opened this week and fishing (catching) was much hotter than the temps for the most part! Mornings saw 35 degree temps yet the rainbow Trout were very hungry. The NakNek and Kvichak were red hot. Our anglers landed 7 fish over 30" on the NakNek while the Kvichak saw guests land as many as 45 fish in one day! We hope this is a sign of the things to come for this season!
