"Jake, how about you pick anywhere you want to go fishing in Southwest Alaska and we will go there for a day or two in the fall." This is what my Dad said to me over the phone last April. My instant reaction: Holy Sh*t!!!
Our initial plan for the first day was to fly in, rent a boat and explore the Kvichak by boat. For the second day, we were planning to fly the area and fish a few small streams until the sun began to set. All of this, though, was dependent on the weather which ended up canceling our plans. Since the Bristol Bay area weather can be fierce and always changing, we weren’t too surprised. But finally, on day three of one of our scheduled departures, the fish God’s finally showed us some mercy and granted us a one day pass to Bristol Bay.
