    Default Anytime now

    They should be here by the end of July. Check the link I have pasted. There is fish counters on the Chena and the Salcha. I would think that they will be late this year towards the end of the month. Fish the deep holes. Anchor up stream and drop wiggle warts back into the hole. Put the rods in a holder and wait for it to take off. They hit so hard, you would think the rod will break. Kwik Fish work good as well. I have tried the month and had better luck down towards nordale.
    Goog Luck. Here is a couple pictures of Chena and Salcha Kings.

    Default Send me a PM

    Shoot me a PM and we can talk off line. I will tell you a few places. I launch on post and at the Nordale ramp. for the Chena. For the Salcha I launch at the bridge.
