Alaska Trip
Off to Alaska tomorrow. Looking to try to fool a few trout and silver salmon.
Although it is the rainy season,we have been assured that the fishing is great. "Just be sure to bring the rain suit".
Will post a report when we return.

Wow, what a trip! Make sure your camera is working. We are all expecting a full and detailed report from a trip like that. Enjoy!

Good luck!
Dispite the rain it is a great time to fish Alaska bulk of the turist are droping off and the bows and varden are getting fat on eggs.
I wish I was going with you!

Alaska Update
Alaska, what a great place! Fabulous views, lots of wildlife and fish.

My son and I spent a week fishing on the Kenai river and the streams which feed into it. This is water that comes from melted snow and ice in the mountains. Very cold if you take a swim. Weather was good all week. We used a guide three days and fished on our own three days.

The sockeye salmon were near the end of their spawning. Red in color and in every stream. This is an example.

We also had a medium distance encounter with bears on three different days, a black and two browns. Here is one joining us fishing on the Kenai.

We caught sockeye salmon (no fun at this stage of their life), pink salmon, silver salmon, rainbows, vardens and a couple of mountain white fish. We fished six of the seven days and caught fish every day until my wrist almost gave up on me. Didn't always have the camera with us. But here are a couple of photos.
Hope I have used the correct procedure to include photographs. If not, I will try again later.

The only negative about the trip was that it takes a long time in a airplane seat to get there and to return. And unlike the past, now the crew wants you to say seated. No roaming the isle or standing in the service area.

Will have talk to Paula for a tutorial.

Can't get photos via the edit option. So will try a new post. Should not make any difference, but will try.

Bear in the river.
