    Well I went,Whaa Hooo.Only landed 2 cohos but had several kings on.The things are unbeliveable.They have so much power!Im using a 9ft 9wt temple forks and a orvice reel,The drag on the reel can stop the line but the rod cant stop the fish it would have broke.Between 3 of use we landed 1 king 4 coho 3 steelhead and 1 brown.The river was full of fish, Colors include green,pink and orange and combo's .Not a bad trip.Again wish good luck to The us fly fishing team.

    Hi melvinp,

    Thanks for your report. it sounds like it was a blast. Are we going to get any pictures?

    For Kings in Alaska a 10wt it the lightest rod a lot will use. Most of the lodges have 12wts for the dudes from the lower 48. You darn sure need a rod with some backbone.

    Your right with the 10wt and a 15lds + tippet you might have a chance.Im trying to cram as many trips in as possible im hoping for 10/23/09.If i get to go ill tell all.I will have pictures but not ready yet from the last trip. Let your drag sing.mel.

    Well it was my 3rd trip to palaski and had a blast,2 kings and 1 brown landed.No pictures of brown (Tailed).You just cant take a picture of a snagged fish.Orange seemed to be the hot color,We had to barrow a net from the DEC to land one steelhead that was pretty cool even though they would have nailed use for any foul hooked fish.They have a job to do too.I would have liked to see them up in orwell the last time i went(Snaggers everywhere)I have a picture of a king with a bright pink and green fly jammed in the bottom of his mouth,They will hit ,And i do understand that their not feedind but you dont have to jam a hook in their side to catch Them,Maybe some day more people will understand that.
