Does catching 24 salmon at day strike you as being tons of fun or absolutely delicious or both?
Hey I found a great spot called the Red Dawg Retreat in Prince of Wales Island Alaska. Wayne Joyner is the owner and he calls it fishing paradise. You can go out there and stay at his place and according to Wayne you don’t need a guide. Here he is: “We have a 3 bedroom 2 bath house which is completely furnished and we set it up like we were living there. We rent it out to a family or a group of fishermen and we are on Prince of Wales Island across from Ketchikan. We can arrange for skiffs or charter if you want to go halibut fishing but that island lends itself mostly to stream fishing and it is all self guided, you do not need a guide to fish. My guess would be the salmon fishing would be out of this world, is that a fair assumption? Yes. You go there in July and August and September, and it is fantastic. They have 4 species of salmon in the rivers during that time. You get silvers, thanks, chum and reds. They are sometimes so thick you have to try not to catch them. You’re allowed 6 salmon per day of the 4 different species. So you can keep 24 fish per day? Yes. What does it cost to rent this house? We rent it to from 2 to 6 people. For 2 people it’s $1000 a week and for 6 people we charge $2400 so that’s 400 per week per person.
