Default Re: Wildman Lake in mid-August

Sounds fun, I lived in the Bristol Bay region for many years and learned to flyfish out there. I also managed to spoil myself with the massive salmon runs and giant 'bows, char, pike, grayling, even lakers.

I think your fly choice is sound. Eggs and flesh flies are key. Silvers like pink.
Watch for bears. They are getting a bit antsy that time of year.

Have fun!

At the moment I plan on taking an 8-weight and a good selection of woolybuggers, leeches, flash flies, and big pink and purple flies as well as a (gasp) spinning rod and a few Pixies for silvers in addition to a 6-weight and some eggs patterns, flesh flies, and streamers for trout.
