With more than 663,268 square miles of land, water and wildlife to its name, the state of Alaska has always been a magnetic draw for me and my camera. This August, Aniak River Lodge https://www.aniakriverlodge.com hosted me on one of Alaska’s most productive and wild salmon rivers. The Aniak River is a 95-mile tributary of the Kuskokwim River draining the Kilbuck and Kuskokwim mountains and the wild Alaskan tundra.
It’s full of rainbows, dollies, grayling, sheefish, northern pike and all five species of salmon. This T-Motion video is a mouse skating adventure. Brian O’Keefe pulled mice on the upper reaches and tributaries of the Aniak, with large, heavy-shouldered leopard rainbow trout attacking the Mr. Hankey mouse pattern.
Thanks to Brian O’Keefe, Sam Sudore of Aniak River Lodge, R.L. Winston Rod Company and Eddie Bauer for making this trip possible. Also big thanks to the guides and staff at Aniak River Lodge for their great effort. https://www.aniakriverlodge.com
