I am taking the family down to the Russian this week for the first time and am looking for any advice. We have a campsite for Wednesday and Thursday. I am familiar with all of the bear safety issues and clean camping so that is not an issue. Some of the questions I have are:
What tackle? We catch most of our salmon on vibrax, is that the right choice for that river or should we try something else?
Where on the river? Is there a place to walk in from the campgrounds or do we need to drive somewhere? I am totally unfamiliar with the river and surrounding area...
Do we need waders?
Fish processing? We are tent camping. Is there a local place that will freeze the fish for us? Since we will be there three days I would like to get it frozen rather than just on ice.
