This week on Loon Live we're fortunate to be joined by guide, speaker, tyer, father, fly designer, musician, teacher and northern California legend Hogan Brown (@htothegtotheb). Hogan will be answering your questions about just about chasing fish on the west coast, especially on his home waters of the Yuba River. We've found that Hogan's bugs work anywhere that trout eat, so we'd highly recommend taking advantage of his time on Loon Live! Join us tonight online at loonoutdoors.com/loonlive at 6 pm PST.⠀

@camillegdorf here…..The Pebble Mine would put this entire place at a huge risk and knowing that it could potentially harm this entire ecosystem is heartbreaking. Not only would it put my family’s way of life a risk, but an entire commercial fishing industry, sport fishing industry, subsistence fishery and of course all the wildlife that depend on this annual return to survive. It’s the wrong place for a mine of this type to be built and we have to do whatever we can to protect it.⠀

@camillegdorf here…..As I mentioned in a previous post, my parents have a trout camp on the upper Nushagak. Rainbow trout are the primary target and they too rely heavily on the annual return of the salmon. As the salmon spawn they feed on the lose eggs that get picked up by the current. This is one of the main food source for all rainbows, dolly varden and grayling as they prepare for winter. After the salmon have spawned, they die and leave their carcasses behind which is also a main food source of other fish.⠀

@camillegdorf here…..Sockeye salmon enter Bristol Bay by the millions. It’s like a wall of fish coming through the bay and then dispersing as each fish returns to the river in which it was born. They are such an impressive force of nature that is so important to the entire ecosystem. Bears, birds, mammals, fish, bugs, people and even the vegetation rely on this yearly return that supplies nutrients and substance for survival. If this resource were to ever disappear, I would hate to think what would happen next.⠀

@camillegdorf here…..Bristol Bay is an undeniably profound place where the term ‘wild’ really makes an impression. The rivers and waterways here harbor a nearly unimaginable event that has taken place year after year, decade after decade, century after century. The return of the salmon. There won’t be a single river without salmon running upstream to spawn and at times there will be so many, it’ll turn the river red.⠀

The bush plane - The ultimate transportation in Alaska. I have been flying in these machines for my entire life and truthfully couldn’t imagine a summer without one. My parents have owned and operated a fly in trout camp on the upper Nushagak river in Bristol Bay, Alaska since 1982. It’s where my roots in the outdoors took hold and where many of the values and beliefs I have today were born. This place is very near and dear to me.⠀
