Is Hem's going out Monday?
(Bump up to Thread Level)
Is Hem's going to be operating on Monday the 6th? The fisherie opens at 6 p.m. - can we get out there and set-up and start at that time? The hotline was updated last night, but no mention of the Monday schedule.
Thanks in advance for any info.....
And I'll answer again....
I believe what they normally do is take the overnighters out and let them set up. Don't think they'll do same day fishing for an opening that late, though. Check their recording.
As of right now they have no information on Monday. You'll probably have to check Saturday night when they update their recording.
The number is: (907)823-2200
Thanks, just trying to get mo' info
Not trying to diss you.....just hoping get more input with a bump to the dipping main page or maybe something from someone who talked to those guys today. I have Hem's number on speed dial; always call bfore leaving!
Probably gonna just show up on Monday about 4-5 p.m. If he's running we'll head out - if not we'll hit Tom's Tavern for a couple beers, camp out and get out early the next day.
According to the latest recording, they will start taking over-nighters out at noon. Everyone else has to wait for Tuesday morning.
Sunday night update
The hotline says no charters until 12 JUL or until river goes down.
Man, the Copper must be smoking fast right now.
It's just going to get worse, too. It's smokin' hot in that area right now, temps in the 80's....lots of melting going on. Oh well...can't do anything about that, just gotta wait and see.
Smoke in the Basin
If your on your way here to the Copper Basin, be ready for smoke. There is a fire some 40-50 miles up the Chitina and its giving us a good taste of smoke. Maybe this is a pre-smoke for fish? If I can I'll attach a photo here. This photo is from the Park Service visitor center bluff at MP 106.8 on the Richardson Highway.
