Alaska fishing guide and Nutmeg TU John Jinishian expressed concerns about the threats posed by Bristol Bay amid images of big fish and beautiful scenery when he visited the general meeting of Nutmeg TU Tuesday, Nov. 20.
Jinishian is general manager of Alaska’s Wild River Guides, a small, float-based fly fishing company. He talked of the adventures on the Kanektok, or Togiak or Goodnews rivers. The company operates seasonally in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska, specifically on the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge. More information can be found at wildriverfish.com.
