The Effect of Pebble Mine on Alaska Lodges

Sportsmen Against Pebble Mine

BBMap10 26
By Fly Out Editor/Owner Cory Luoma
 
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!

Alaska's Mission Lodge Will Host Bristol Bay Youth and Veterans

Via sportsmansalliance4ak.org

LOGOAlaska veterans and active duty soldiers are about to embark on a dream fishing trip – even by Alaskans' standards.

Bristol Bay Native Corporation will host eight veterans and soldiers to go on a five-day, all-expenses-paid trip to its Mission Lodge, an upscale fishing lodge located in Aleknagik, near Dillingham, Alaska. BBNC also will award internships to top students of the Bristol Bay River Academy, which is operated by Trout Unlimited and provides

sportfishing guide and conservation training to youths – mostly Alaska Natives – in the Bristol Bay region.

The Anchorage chapter of Project Healing Waters is coordinating with the disabled veterans, some of whom remain on active duty. PenAir is providing the veterans with air transportation out of Anchorage. The trip will take place June 18-22.

The veterans will stay at the Mission Lodge, and will travel by float plane to several world-class sportfishing areas in the Bristol Bay region. Graduates of the Bristol Bay River Academy will guide the veterans. King salmon are returning to the waters of Bristol Bay, and fishing should be excellent.

"The Mission Lodge and local Bristol Bay fishing opportunities offer the perfect environment to help military personnel take in the natural beauty of Alaska," said Jason Metrokin, president and CEO of BBNC. "It is a place for reflection and peace, not to mention some of the best fishing in all of Alaska. We are proud to be able to support our veterans."

"Trout Unlimited is pleased to help support this opportunity to show our appreciation to wounded warriors who have put their lives on the line for our country," said Tim Bristol, director of Trout Unlimited, Alaska Program. "Bristol Bay offers spectacular sportfishing and we're excited to have graduates of our Bristol Bay River Academy team up with these veterans to fly-fish together and offer instruction where needed. We're very proud of both our graduates and our vets, and it's a special thing to have them pair up, especially here, home to one of the great wild fisheries left on the planet."

The veterans and soldiers who are participating are actively involved with Project Healing Waters. The program seeks to aid disabled active duty military personnel and veterans recover physically and emotionally through fishing opportunities and skills workshops focused on activities such as fly-tying and casting.

The veterans and soldiers were invited on the Bristol Bay trip as a way to thank them for their service, said Laura Orr, soldier and public relations manager with Project Healing Waters. "They are so excited right now."

Orr said she has personally seen success stories thanks to the program. "I've seen people who were depressed, have just about given up," she said. "Then they try this and they have that 'Aha!' moment. Now they are open and friendly. It really helps them relax and make good memories again. Seeing that moment is amazing."

Mission Lodge Under New Ownership

For Immediate Release

May 24, 2012

Contact: Guy Fullhart, General Manager

(800)-819-0750 or

LOGOWe at Mission Lodge have exciting news to share from the shores of Lake Aleknagik in Alaska's beautiful Bristol Bay watershed. In May 2012, long-time owner Dale DePriest successfully closed a sale of the Mission Lodge to Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC). The sale helped DePriest realize an important retirement goal while at the same time assuring the continuation of his vision for the Mission Lodge. "The sale returns the property to local, Alaska Native ownership and provides new and exciting opportunities for my dear friends Guy and Sarah Fullhart," said DePriest.

BBNC is seeking opportunities to invest in the Bristol Bay region and tourism has been an area of interest for some time. "We are very excited to have re-entered the region through a tourism investment and believe we have found a great fit with the Mission Lodge and Guy and Sarah Fullhart," said BBNC President & CEO Jason Metrokin.

BBNC is a strong advocate for conservation and responsible development, and is a leader in the fight against the Pebble mine that threatens Bristol Bay waters and fisheries. "We are very focused on protecting Bristol Bay and I believe that the values of BBNC and very much in line with the customers of the Mission Lodge," said Metrokin.

Guy and Sarah Fullhart have joined the BBNC team and will continue to manage the lodge operations. "We are very happy to be a part of BBNC and are really pleased that their vision is to keep the Mission Lodge unchanged. Our guests can expect the same feel and exceptional experience that they have come to know and love," said Sarah Fullhart. "We all share a common bond and love for this incredible region of Alaska. This new chapter for Mission Lodge more tightly connects the lodge with the region and together will help us learn from each other and strengthen our common fight to protect this land for many generations to come," said Guy Fullhart.
