What to Expect in August
Bears, trout, sockeye, and silvers. In the short Alaskan summer, August is the month were everything is happening all at once. The tundra is in bloom, red sockeye salmon are beginning to spawn and brown bears are starting to fatten back up after losing not eating all winter. Rainbow trout and Dollie Varden feast on sockeye and chum salmon eggs. Silver salmon numbers are typically strong enough that by mid-August, they are a daily part of our routine.
