Presentations

 Alaska River Fishing
BWCA - main floor Sat 9:30am-10:15am 
Bear - upstairs Sun 11:30am-12:15pm 

Alaska is a scenic, vast and varied land with over 12,000 rivers! That's more fishing opportunities than one can experience in a lifetime. This explains why so many people have Alaska on their bucket lists. The reality is that if you visit once, and experience this fantastic fishing, you will be hooked, and want to return year after year.

The fishing in Alaska is totally different than most fishing in the lower 48 states. Rich will teach you what you need to know to be a successful angler in the Land of the Midnight Sun. He will discuss appropriate tackle for salmon and trout fishing, including methods, tactics, and a few tricks to entice the bite. He will share some critical knowledge to understanding how to time your trips to be there when the fish are present. There are many ways to access this fantastic fishing; air, roads, wading, canoes, kayaks, rafts, boats & motors, among them. Rich will also discuss what you can do with your catch.

Rich has compiled a couple of useful resources that will be distributed to all attendees of his presentation. 'Alaska Travel, Paddling, & Fishing Planner' and 'Alaska Fishing Tackle Suggestions' will both provide guidance for those planning to visit The Last Frontier.
