Alaska Rainbow Adventures
Bristol Bay Alaska
The Togiak River ...meanders it's way towards the Bering Sea Coast from our put in location at it's headwaters on Togiak Lake, it passes a number of tributaries which offer phenomenal fishing, and jaw dropping campsite vistas. It is not uncommon to sit around a roaring fire in the evening, recalling the days fishing and wildlife viewing, whilst the moon rises from behind the surrounding peaks and a chorus of wolves and owls compete for that "Oh, WOW" moment that will last a lifetime.
Of course, all of this sounds idyllic, we haven't even discussed the fishing to be had here!
The Togiak boasts a large biomass of fish ranging from Dolly Varden/Arctic Char by the thousands, Arctic Grayling that resemble a taxidermists wet dream, to Rainbow Trout that have maxed out in the 32"+ range, and did we mention the Coho (silver) Salmon runs? Silvers so thick and feisty that you may find yourself back home weeks later asking your physician if he has a way to treat Coho Elbow. These fish don't have far to travel from the sea, and aren't fighting a heavy current, so when they strike a fly they have energy to spare, and they will take it out on the angler with a vengeance. Complimenting the Coho Run, the Togiak also offers King Salmon as well as Sockeye Salmon runs that are very difficult to beat anywhere.
