Chitna Report Wednesday July 2nd
Headed out early Tuesday to ensure we were first in line on Wednesday. We had a great camp spot and we were the second group in line. Stid brought along the best camp fare ever. Shrimp from PWS! The dipping was very slow. We dipped for 9 hours and ended up with 14 reds and two kings. The King I netted almost pulled me in the water. Luckily Steve put his net under mine and we both wrangled the 41 pounder up the cliff. I almost had to let go of the dip net. I was at the end of the pole and the king was still running up river.
All-in-all we had a safe and successful trip. We brought home all of our body parts, gear, and some excellent tasting fish.
The water level is real low.
It sounds like you had to work pretty hard for your fish. At least you got a nice king out of the trip and a good story.
I am hoping things pick up next week when I head down. The sonar counts are coming up quite a bit.
