  1. The Bad & The Ugly, Part 3;

    I hope this is the end of it for this year.

    I have no picture but I think you'll get the idea. I went fishing today June 15, 2011 even though it was raining when I left for the river at 4:30 AM. It was also only 40 degrees down on the water and the rain was a cold one. The past two days have been good with a 28 pound salmon caught on Monday followed by a 40 on Tuesday so I figured to go 3 for 3. You are only allowed 5 king salmon annually in Alaska and only one may be harvested on

  2. Still Good, part two of a three part story;

    Another Day Another Chance

    On another morning I found myself sitting in the boat at 4:10 AM watching another bottleneck that feed into another huge pool. The regulations prohibit fishing for salmon between 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM so I had elected to spend a couple hours looking for fish. It didn't take long before I spotted a wake and realized there were a bunch in the head of the pool. I cast for 2 hours and 55 minutes with the Skykomish that is tied to my line in this picture.

  4. It Took Two Weeks But.....It's The Big Fish

    The day I caught a really nice fish but had no camera with me there were two people who took pictures for me with cell phones. One of these is posted to a fishing story here on the blog, the other I never mentioned because I didn't receive the picture until I checked mail today The kind lady who took this had a digital SLR with her but had forgotten to bring the batteries however her phone was considerably more advanced than the gentleman who took the original shot for me. In her e-mail accompanying ...

  5. River to River Part 2;

    On Wednesday the 13th of July I took a ride on my favorite river looking for some sockeye salmon. I knew there would be some chum in and maybe even a few late kings that might take a fly so with a beautiful sunny day coming about I was on the water at 10:00 AM. I knew where I was headed because the fish take the same route every year and seem to hold in the same spots. From where I launched I stayed on the shallow side of the river and traveled slow watching carefully the deeper channel on my left ...
