Greetings from Alaska again! The wording on this one should be rather short as there’s not that much to tell… Spent two more days guiding Eric and Travis from Utah after my last little update, my dad and Uncle Stewart came in last Saturday and we’ve been having fun ever since until they took off today.
Bought the biggest flag I could find in King Salmon for my house on Flag Day! (Also my Dad’s birthday… ;^)
A couple of Eric and Travis’s better fish with me.
A little evening guide time off.
We took a little tour a of Naknek on Sunday, father’s day, out by the river mouth with Jim and Phyllis. Saw some of the fleet out fishing, but not many salmon in just yet so most of the fishing boats were still in dry dock. Coolest part was seeing a bunch of Beluga Whales in near shore on the high tide presumably feeding on a fresh push of Sockeye.
Dad and I.
Some of the fleet.
Much better in person, but the best shots I could get of the whales.
Monday thru Thursday we pretty much just fished Sockeye filling up some boxes to take home both cold smoked and fresh frozen. Mission accomplished and along the way we saw some awesome stuff, dad managed a nice trout as well as a nice grayling and we thoroughly enjoyed our quality time together!
Dad fishing at “Fraley’s Corner” while Uncle Stewart takes a break.
The little dot in the river is a river otter.
Moose crossing that Ashley caught.
A day’s catch headed in to be smoked.
More fish porn...
Resting my back, but railing Sockeyes! ;^)
We’ve got a fairly full house starting tonight and this week should be full of more adventure that I’ll report on next weekend so, till then, tight lines all!!
