In episode number 3 we ventured out on a fly out to a remote river to experience some topwater coho fishing. Needless to say the fishing was incredible, and the coho were explosive. We got to see some of the most beautiful country Alaska has to offer and fishing in the Italio River was the cherry on top. This river was nestled in the Tongass National Forest and truly was amazing. We hope you guys/gals enjoy this episode and please comment with what you thought.

Our group fishes the Italio every year. Last year, 2017, was amazing. In 2016, however, the river was stacked with fish but they wouldn’t touch anything we threw at them. Very hard fishing but still fun. We’ll return the second week of September. We’re very jacked for this year!
P.S. Jordan was our guide on our Situk float last year. He was awesome!
Topwater coho at the confluence of the Lost River and Tawah Creek was similar to what you described, especially on the incoming tide. They would bite anything, including plastic frogs and pink wogs.
