Bristol Bay Fly Fishing & Guide Academy

We are so excited to announce that the application period for the 2016 Bristol Bay Guide Academy is OPEN!

Though the Academy is of course a great job training opportunity and a whole lot of FUN, it is also a key piece of working toward a future based on clean rivers, salmon and salmon-based jobs that we seek for Bristol Bay.

We hope you’ll apply or…

Save Bristol Bay


2 Minutes of your day could help generations of Wild Alaska Salmon



Friday is the Deadline to have your say and Help Save Bristol Bay





Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to one of the last great salmon fisheries on the planet. The salmon, wildlife, people and fishing jobs of this beautiful and productive region are threatened by the proposed Pebble gold and copper mine. If built, Pebble could become the largest mine in North America.

We have an unprecedented opportunity to stop this mine and protect Bristol Bay’s fish and jobs through the Clean Water Act.

Take action now by sending a comment to the EPA on their Proposed Determination for 404(c) action that would stop Pebble mine. Ask EPA to complete the Clean Water Act 404(c) process and protect Bristol Bay
