The flight from western Alaska to Anchorage gave me some time to reflect on a my week at Alaska West and the Kanektok River. Over-all, it was an insane week of king fishing. Every tide brought huge schools of giant chinooks in from the Bering Sea. -To be blunt, we fucking whaled on 'em. It wasn't uncommon to hook five to ten kings on a single day of fishing. Plus, the XL fish showed up in mass. It was everything you dream of when it comes to king salmon with two-handed rods.
After a few days of the best salmon fishing on the planet, I decided to check out what else the Kanektok had to offer. I was blown away! We had incredible mouse fishing for leapord rainbows, chums on switch rods and beautiful grayling on dry flies. It really opened my eyes to how amazing that fishery is. Not to mention, the guide & lodge staff nocked it out of the park. It was my best trip to Alaska yet... And I can't wait to get back.
