How I Dealt With The Great Flood;

Posted 12-12-2012 at 11:04 PM by Hardyreels

After handling all of the disappointments between April and September I was ready for the fall fishing season. Fall in my part of Alaska is beautiful in more ways than one. The rivers and creeks are nearly deserted, all of the people who came to fish for salmon have long since went home and there you are. There are still a few silvers in the rivers but most are way up to the head waters doing the work of reproducing the stock. Many of the trout that went up with and behind the salmon are beginning...

The Small Streams That Saved Fall Fishing

Posted 12-12-2012 at 11:03 PM by Hardyreels

Welcome to the rest of the story; I visited another little creek during the high water but didn't find as many fish there. I did however find a nice big one and I'll get to that shortly.

This creek is narrow and deep, it flows into Cook Inlet and runs rather slowly because it's so close to sea level. Because you are so close to the Inlet you can always have a shot at a steelhead here. The problem is that because it's so deep, you don't see them until they are on the hook and going

Trouble In Paridise................. ..

Where to start?

That's what has kept me from writing for so long. It's been a long while since May and so much to tell, are you ready for a 5 part Blog entry? Good, here we go............ You may notice that some photos in Part One are a recap from a previous entry but I ran them anyway because I had no others to fill in with. The title for this series of entries is based on the premise that Alaska is indeed Fisherman's Paradise, for me it has been but there has been a troubling trend...

Part 2, Trouble In Paradise;

At the mid point of June Mt brother Tom arrived from Pennsylvania and was our guest through the third week of July. Trips taken during his visit were not fishing oriented (not too much) because he doesn't fish, go figure. I tried to get him involved back in the late 60's and early 70's but he became frustrated easily. He was always a results sort while I was a little more pragmatic about what really equaled results. He quit and still holds to the story that he did so because his brother (me) seemed...

Part 3, Trouble In Paradise;

Posted 11-20-2012 at 06:46 PM by Hardyreels

I spent the remainder of July and the first week of August fishing and scouting for some salmon. What I was doing was getting ready for company again, this time it was some people from this Forum! John & Pam Page, fysh & mrs. fysh, came to Alaska this year. Although I've seen better years to try to impress anyone with the fishing we all had fun and they seemed to be catching fish despite the conditions. Speaking of conditions we had wonderful weather while they were here and of that I was...
