  1. Default Naknek River Rainbows

    Well i fished the naknek this year and it was once again a great trip. For those who don't know the naknek river is located in bristol bay and along with the kvichichiak is considered alaska's best place to catch a bow over 30 inches. I never caught one over 30 but i did catch 4 around 27 to 29 inches and all were fat and full of **** and vinegar so they fought like possessed fish. My dad caught the biggest fish of the trip, a 34 inch 13 to 14 pound hog. Most of our fish were caught wading from shore but the big one and a few others were caught from drifting in our or our guides jet boat. Because of all the big fish we caught, the countless 18 to 24 inch bows and the chance to spend worry free days with my dad i would say it was a very successfull trip.


    This is the big one my dad caught, it fought so hard and long it was really tired so we had to release it quick which explains the crappy pic but no pic is worth hurting or killing such a magnificant fish!


    Me with a nice 28 incher


    This fish was around 29 inches and 9.5 to 10 pounds, this fish had some serious thickness to his back


    Me with a nice 27 incher


    My dad with a smaller fish that fought so hard it deserved a pic!


    A shallow stretch we did real well wading


    Our boat dock and the river which you can see is pretty big
    Always in search of Big bows

    Great pictures and one heck of a great first (non-intro) post! I'm sure lots of us are jealous that you get to live and fish up there. Come january we probably won't want to swap places with you.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
