What would an Alaska fishing adventure be without bugs? Our mosquito’s arrive in mid-June and thrive through July, unless the weather heats up. Most of our fishing is done in open areas, so if the weather is warm, the bugs won’t be a problem. However, if it’s overcast or wet, expect bugs. By August our mosquitoes are gone–just in time for the arrival of our no-see-ums! So either way, expect bugs.
If you don’t like flying insects, Cabela’s sells a great variety of bug headnets; or just bring a can of mosquito spray and you should be fine.
