    Default Alagnak in June

    My fiancee and I have booked an unguided 7 day float trip on the Alagnak on June 8 (the opener). I am looking for anyone who has fished there or knows about it for some info on what I'm going to need. I guess they swing leeches all season, and I'm seeing that mouse patterns are a good time. Any info would be awesome, thanks.

    I'd suggest bringing smolt flies and poppers there should be about 400,000,000 smolt coming downstream about then.
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Lane, already answered your query on the AFF forum, best of luck.

    Smolt patterns like are great, leaches, flesh flies, definitly bring some beads too, none of these glo bugs either.... You might want you fur underwear too cause Bristol Bay can be darn cold in early June camping...

    Rainbow, dolly, and grayling fishing should be fabulous though and take a ton of photo's and stay up high in the froks region as long as you stay allows.

    So the two best places for fishing are the forkls region and the lake outlets... Vast majority of the spawning takes place in the forks region so this is where the best rainbow fishing will be... Can you say Oregon cheese colored beads!
