Fishing the Worlds BEST Coho Salmon River w/ Scott Haugen (Video)

An incredible river, coming out of the second largest lake in Alaska, Becharof Lake flows out into the Egegik River, which eventually flows into a tidal lagoon, then into Bristol Bay.

When the Coho Salmon show up in the Egegik, they are very, very aggressive. Fresh out of the dirty water, they stack heavy near the Becharof Lodge.
