We’re really lucky to witness prolific runs of all five species of pacific salmon throughout our season at Alaska West. That means that each year some of our guests (particularly those joining us from mid/late July to early August) get a shot at the ol’ grand slam; All five species of pacific salmon, all on the fly, all landed within in a single day’s fishing.. It’s a pretty special feat, and certainly not one many anglers are fortunate enough to experience.
Today we’re happy to announce that just last week our good friend (some might even say family member), and long time Alaska West guest, Bryan Whiting, nabbed our first grand slam of the 2016 season!
However, not only did Bryan land all five species of Pacific salmon within a single day, each salmon landed was chrome bright, far from their spawning colors. We call that the ‘Chrome Slam,’ that’s an even rarer feat, and we don’t think it could happen to a better guy.
Awesome job Bryan!
My success was not a function of my fishing skill but rather a function of top quality guides and a river that is literally full of fish. I am privileged to fish at Alaska West
