The preparation is in full swing as the employees here at Wild Strawberry Lodge get ready for the season. We are enjoying the sunshine and getting lots of projects done as we anxiously wait for our guests to arrive. Once again, we are expecting big numbers of King Salmon! The good news is we will have the same 2014 regulations for catching King Salmon during this upcoming 2015 season!
The daily limit will be two Kings per day during the months of both May and June! Starting July 1st, it drops to one King per day for the rest of the season. The Annual limit is six King Salmon per person. The continued high abundance of King Salmon is very good news for those of you who are coming up to Sitka for your Alaskan fishing adventure. All of you are in for a great time!
If you have been here in previous seasons, you will notice the new projects we have been working on to keep enhancing the lodge facility. One big project this spring is putting in a brick paver parking lot across the whole front of the lodge complex. With the beautiful weather this week we hope to finish it before we start fishing! Our goal is to keep improving the fishing and lodging vacation experience for our guests coming to enjoy themselves each year at the Wild Strawberry Lodge.
Yesterday, we launched the Triple Play and broke in two new Yamaha 250 hp outboard engines. Captain Greg will be happy to have twin outboard engines with the Digital Electronic Controls for his vessel. Captain Dylan and his crew launched The Jackpot today; it was perfect weather to go for a test drive. All vessels will be getting launched soon and the captains are eager to take everyone out fishing.
We are so excited to be getting the boats in the water to be ready for you to go fishing! The hot rumor is there are lots of king salmon out there. We will report back in a few days with our own catch reports. Keep watching for our Catch of the Day to start being posted daily on our website! If you are interested in vacationing with us call us up – we would love to hear from you! We are open until mid-September and have a few openings if you are flexible with dates. Flights fill up fast so start planning today!
