The clear artesian waters at Wildman Lake Lodge produce some Alaska’s very best Char and Dolly fishing.  This year was an exceptional one, with many big char in the 10 to 12 pound range.  Of course we thought last year was exceptional too.  We just can’t get used to the size of the fish here.  Everyone a thrill and catching one after another most days.  Steve Claiborn landed this beautiful dolly being held by Wildman river guide, Greg Gio…………. Last week near Wildman Lake Lodge. NOTE: Gary “Butch” King is no stranger to big Dolly Varden.  He set the IGFA All Tackle World Record in 1991, 16lbs.-12oz.  It is mounted on the wall at Wildman Lake Lodge.
