TIGER Salmon Special - NEW PRICE  $2495 including Charter!!!

TigerSo maybe you've been to Alaska to finally land your big King, or maybe you've been to Alaska for the annual Silver run that leaves you exhausted from tangling with one too many. Both fish are great adversaries worthy of all of the praise they get. But did you know that there is an entire "mini-season" where neither Kings or Silvers are the star player, a time when more species of fish and the sheer number of fish in the River will amaze you. Kings, Silvers, Pinks, Sockeye, Rainbows, and Grayling are all in the River. The onslaught of the big Dolly Varden run will be just beginning. But the real  "Star" attraction at this time of the summer is the Chum Salmon, or what we like to call them, the "Tiger Salmon". Why? Here's what long time Guide Cap't John Kumiski has to say about them:

"I went to see my psychiatrist. He told me I was crazy. I told him I wanted a second opinion. He said, 'OK, you're ugly, too.' I don't get no respect, no respect at all."
- Rodney Dangerfield

If salmon cared about such things, chums would feel like Rodney Dangerfield. I don't understand why either- they are big, aggressive, colorful, hard-fighting fish. Just awesome. During July they pour into the Goodnews River by the thousands, procreation on their minds.
