My sister Maggie writes beautifully for We Are Bristol Bay about growing up with salmon in our blood. “My parents say I was baptized in the Ugashik river, and though I often doubt they dipped my bald head in the cold muddy currents, I know I have spent every summer there since I was born.
We just wrapped up another summer fishing in Bristol Bay on our boat the F/V Eva! We are feeling grateful for a strong salmon run and the safety of the fleet. We are excited to be bringing even more delicious wild sockeye salmon back to Colorado this year. See you in a few weeks!! Here we are with a wild Chum salmon. Here is the Eva on a calm morning. She is our home, office and workspace for the summer.
