What to Expect in October
We are thankful to have one of the longest seasons in our area, but it comes to an end after the third week of October.
Fishing the waters of Bristol Bay in October is not for the faint of heart. It can be windy, rainy, and even cold. Beautiful fall colors decorate the landscape and the low sun angle bathes the rivers and tundra with a golden hue. The reasons to visit Bristol Bay in October is to experience a time that is as unique as the place. The fish at this time of year are huge, enjoying their final meals of the season, before the cold of Winter.
The weather isn’t always bad though, and we often have sunny conditions, with cold mornings and warm afternoons. As long as you dress accordingly, we feel confident the fish will make you forget your hands are a little cold. And no more bugs!
