Default Re: opening day strategy

I fish year round up here, but the king salmon season on the Southern Kenai peninsula streams starts at midnight on the Friday

of Memorial Day weekend. What A zoo! We get a flood of people from Anchorage and the Matsu Valley coming down to go

fishing and drinking. As much as I like fishing the Anchor River when the condition's are prime I don't mind when it's high for

the opener;I've seen quite a few fist fight's, had some real "fun" argument's, not to mention people flinging hardware

at you, fish on or not. I have been waiting until first light as the nasties are all passed out drunk and the fish tend to turn on the

bite. After Memorial day weekend things quiet down considerably.
