    Default It's Les Anderson Day!!

    Today is the anniversary for the WORLD Record King Salmon caught by Les Anderson!! It's stood now for over 20 years since that May morning that Les and Bud Loffsted made the drift that raised the bar!! Les always said he hoped someone would break his record, (he hoped it would be a local). I know I am going to try again today to do it! Rest In Peace Les!

    Default Mounted? Yes

    Les was a great friend. I always think about his ever present smile and humble nature whenever I fish through the famous spot (though I have never caught a fish there). It was indeed 23 years ago that he caught that fish (May 17, 1985).

    You can see the mounted fish at the Soldotna Visitor's Center.
