The other day I tagged our recommended lodges and adventures on the Trout Unlimited and Renewable Resource Coalition map that outlines the "Potential Mining Footprint on Bristol Bay's Wild Salmon and Trout Waters". It is clear from this image that the Alaska sport fishing and adventure community has a stake (responsibility) in protecting this region. For one area to support the lodge density and the number of reputable operations (indicated by the blue bubbles), it is obvious there are incredible fishing opportunities in this area - not to mention wildlife viewing, flightseeing, photography, etc. Many of these lodges fly out to the Nushagak River to fish it's famous King Salmon run in June and early July. Some of them fish locally right on the Kvichak River for giant rainbows. These are the drainages at risk.  

Even if you've never visited Bristol Bay, stand up for a truly sacred place - where you can enjoy clean water, fresh air, and all the wild things that make Alaska special. You can help by going to savebristolbay.org/take-action. Do it today!
