Drama On the Alagnak Wild River
Its all good fun when you are out fishing, but we do need to remember that we are fishing in the natural world that mother nature creates and man is not always at the top of the food chain…..
As everyone has now arrived at the lodge the staff have all been busy getting everything ready for the busy season ahead we have booked up with customers. However all the staff and guides plus a few of our first customers of the season have been out on the river exploring and checking out all the normal areas and of course sample some of the fishing. I think it is fair to say that the Trout fishing has been off the charts with everyone having such fun.
But for some people you can never get enough fun, so last night Jon the new guy decided he would continue fishing with the midnight sun.
Katlyn one of our new staff was standing down on the dock watching Jon fish, when Katlyn yells for Jon to look behind him as there is a female Moose and her calf hoofing it across the river. They looked to be in quite a hurry!. After standing there and appreciating this spectacle of mother nature, thinking to themselves, “Wow, wasn’t that pretty cool!”…..as if that weren’t enough, along comes this big ole Alaska Brown Bear, barreling over the meadow in hot pursuit, crashing in to the river at pace, with water splashing in every direction as he tries to catch up with female Moose and her calf….and who can blame him, he’s pretty dam hungry after 6 months of hibernation and no salmon in the river yet!
