    Default Upper Cook Inlet gill net coho harvest report

    I just read in the Frontiersman that the gill netters working the upper Cook Inlet have harvested 157,528 coho as of July 29.

    Yes, but the Little Su is way ahead of the average curve. It will open to bait on the 6th this year. Montana Creek is also the best it has been in years. Those are the only two places I have fished. The very warm water on the Deshka is a major part of the problem over there.

    Can someone explain why the Deshka seems to have higher water temperatures than other stream in the area?

    Deshka river drains the Petersville area which is swamp land and bogs. When it's hot the Deshka gets low and trickles through lots of dark colored river bottom. The river is tannin colored which also helps to heat it up. Deshka is not fed from the glaciers or high mtns like many other surrounding rivers.
