Default Re: Pictures of The Fish;

I'm shopping the Pentax Optio for the past day Larry, problem is that the best buys do not ship to AK. These are sellers on the eBay out of NYC. Prices as low as 189 but no AK. sales........... It would be cool to get underwater shots of fish this season.

I may go for a couple more tomorrow. The Cannon is still in the rice, I hope it recovers because it has been a handy little thing for the money.

Ard,

If you find the right deal on the camera but can't get it shipped to AK, don't let that stop you. Get it shipped to me, I'll ensure it's shipped to you.

Massive! Maybe I'm an alarmist, but isn't something wrong when Alaska doesn't have enough fish??? milt

Hi milt,

The King salmon numbers have plunged throughout Alaska over the past 5 years. At this time there is no consensus of opinion as to what are the contributing factors. All we really know is that the runs are week. We have one river here, The Deshka, that for whatever reason has maintained itself somewhat and the harvest is allowed there.

I have not ventured to the Deshka because of the very fact that the run is strong there. Being the only river open to harvest in South central Alaska the fishing pressure at this time is heavy. I prefer to go where there is no one else and the river where these kings were caught.......... I was alone. I mean no other boat trailers at the launching area, none on the river, no one. It was peaceful, quiet, and as you can see I was able to catch fish until I decided to move on.

The Talachulitna River is also a C&R fishery for kings and I have been fishing up there. At that river I caught no salmon although they seemed plentiful. I went to trout fish and was able to catch plenty of trout. With the pressure on the kings I am focusing on trout & grayling. However, I would have loved it if I would have had a customer along the other day to catch those kings. I'm pretty sure that I could have instructed another fisherman or woman in such a way that they would have had the same results. had that been the case, I may not have dunked the camera

I took a look at the traffic on my web site and see that there have been 849 visits as of today. Maybe one of these days one of the viewers will take a chance on me. at this time I'm going to stay busy on the cabin until late July when I have some people to guide up at the Tal.

Ard

Good for you Ard, hopefully things will turn around soon for the salmon in south central.

Actually John there are quite a few fish in this year. I don't agree with allowing harvest in some places because we are still below escapement in many rivers but they are here if you know where to look. I believe there are enough here that I could go tomorrow and repeat Tuesday's fishing.
