Alaska - September 2, 2009
We had a great trip to the Kanektok River in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. There was a good run of silver salmon that really bent our rods, and the leopard rainbows were really beautiful fish.
Silvers this size on a mouse pattern on the surface are a lot of fun -- what a take! The grayling on big dry flies and light rods were exciting as well.
We also caught plenty of sea-run dollies which were in full spawning colors and simply beautiful. What a great place to be in August!
Thanks for the pics and the report, Randy! What an awesome trip! I've never tried to hook a silver salmon on a mouse pattern before. We head up to Alaska for our McFlyshop hosted trip in a little over a week, so I'll have to give that one a try!
