Leaving On A Jet Plane


Recommended Posts

Bill and I leave again for our annual trip up north- to Alaska. I leave on 7/24 for a week at Naknek River Camp - King Salmon, AK - to see how my cabin has faired. I haven't been back there for a couple of years now. It's an in between time - rainbows will be good and some pinks will be running but it's too late for fresh sockeye and too early for silvers. But I'll get to spend some time with my buddy Jim Johnson. May be float a river... do some exploring.

Then I'll meet up with Bill on Kodiak Island. We will host 2 groups of men for a week each. We're staying at Olds River Inn just off the Olds River. Pinks will be in full swing - fish on every cast using spinners and spoons. We'll do some deep sea fishing for halibut, rockfish and ling cod and we'll also fly them out to a river that hopefully will have a fresh run of silvers.

We'll have internet and should be able to keep up with things back home as well as sending pics back for you all to drool over. Not talking about the fish... talking about the mild temperatures!!! King Salmon- low to mid 50's and 40's at night. It'll be a big shocker for sure! Kodiak should be 60's daytime.

Looking forward to spending time with my buddy Bill and enjoying some Alaska-time!

Phil, are rainbows steelhead, or are there two seperate ones? One that is fresh water and one that goes to sea and returns. I am confused on the subject.

Phil and Bill: Sounds like another wonderful Trip to Alaska. I'm envious as i'm remembering our great trips there several years ago.I hope you will tempt us with many pictures of your adventures there.

Is this a trip to another section of uncharted waters?

Be safe and wishing you a very successful trip.

Denny- rainbows don't go to the ocean and steelhead do. Think that's it.

Rolan- no new places except the flyouts we'll do from Kodiak. They'll be day trips.
