    It sucks and we're rude. The rivers are punched out because of the rain. People aren't to happy either because we're damp and cold

    Default Been good for me..... ?

    Yes the weather was a bit difficult but we still caught fish, weather was almost too good today but we still limited out without too much of a problem. Biggest issue for me was the crowd but we were able to avoid them and still catch fish.

    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    rhd: Holy cow that is a HUGE silver. Or are you only 5 feet tall? I'm guessing about 18 or 20 pounds.

    Cordova is rapidly moving up my list of places to try fishing in the unofficial fall up here. Those are some gorgeous silvers. I could probably take the ferry from Whittier and camp for a few days for a relatively cheap trip....

    coho slayer because I think you're pretty cool I'll offer you and only you this info. Keep it to yourself please! The ferry trip for me and my truck round trip was $210.00, it took 3hrs from dock to dock. You're fishing in 4hrs and 10 min from Anchorage. Don't tell anyone this tip and please support the hardworking fishing families of Area E when those heathens from Fairbanks try to strip us of our livelihoods.
    One other thing I forgot, support the local businesses, don't get groceries at AC, go uptown to the grocery store on main street

    Thanks Fullbush....probably won't happen this year, but I'll keep that in mind for next. And I'll do my part to support the local folks for sure. Is it cool with the locals to park/camp in a truck there for a few days?

    Typically they are pretty quick to give you a notice if you're not in a designated campground in city limits. City limits goes to 17 mile down the highway and to the Hartney Bay bridge down Whitshed Rd. Trust me, local PD or a local will let you know if you are there more than a one night. Showers are available at the Harbor Monster's office. Please remember there are a lot of places to fish rather than the one stream that tends to become a parking lot. The highway has been shortened due to the massive rains. You can't get to Child's Glacier until the bridge at 36 mile is repaired.

    I was there 2 weeks ago and fishing was great even with all the rain. Radar shows it is still raining. Is the bridge to Miles Glacier fixed yet? Oh, the Silvers this year were,just as big as last year.

    Really bummed I won't make Cordova this year!

    Although I'm headed to POW in about 3 weeks to chase the blacktails and the stray coho's that may be left in the Klawock!

    Here's a picture thread of my last trip to Cordova. We flew out to the Tsiu. Insane weather compared to this year!

    I'll be back next year though!
