August is an exceptional month in Western Alaska. August marks the beginning of a change in seasons with slightly cooler temperatures. More exciting is, August also marks the beginning of the Silver Salmon season. Both Silver Salmon and Rainbow Trout are voracious and aggressive and August is a prime month for both Silver Salmon and Rainbows both at Alaska West Lodge and Rapids Camp Lodge.
Both Alaska West Lodge and Rapids Camp Lodge tout strong Silver Salmon and Rainbow Trout. The sheer size of Silver Salmon and Rainbow Trout at both locations is impressive alone, but the abundance of fish and the ways to catch is also impressive. Check out some of our favorite flies for Silver Salmon here and Rainbow Trout fly patterns here.
What can we say? We really like August in Alaska. Okay, let’s be real…we like Alaska all the time!
