Week One: Heli-Fishing and Catching Alaska King Salmon at Talaheim

Alaska King Salmon

Talaheim’s Alaska King Salmon season opened strong with the fine folks from Spenard Builder’s Supply and Knauf Insulation. These fans were on their feet, dragging in 30-35 pound salmon with the help of vibrax spinners, pixies, and egg sucking leaches.  Heli-Fishing opens up a whole new ballgame, especially when the unpredictable weather goes from beautiful to lousy in less than two seconds.  By helicopter, our team was able to access clear streams, even in the rainiest of days, and then maneuver from pool to pool with the help of pontoon rafts.

Back in the dugout, team members enjoyed Katieri’s rustic shepherd pie on a rainy day, followed by a hot tub courtesy of Nellie.

“What a great week of fishing. Thanks for the hospitality and great food. The guides were able to teach me how to fish and have extreme patience.  I will never forget Captain America and your 4th of July celebration.” ~Ian, Talaheim Guest

Thanks, Ian! Captain America will never forget you. For more pictures from Week One’s Salmon adventures, check out Facebook.
