    Default yes

    If you go to the thread 'need a guide in Juneau today' OneLung says they are in up there. I also had a guy at work tell me they were in there pretty thick.

    Nice pic Lunger. Good sport with a fly swatter.

    Didn't see any signs of humpies on the south end.

    Did manage to catch a 23" dolly. It was quite a whopper. I post a pic later when I dump it from the camera.

    Pinks always bring to mind the Austin Powers character Ivana Humpalot. The kid and I always have some good laughs when we get "humped" (esp. when we're not after 'em)

    I dig humpies on the fly....some nice sized ones out there as well..

    Cohos seem to be coming in quite early this year as well..

    L.G., any plans for an early season deer hunt?

    We're about to start our pre-season scouting trips...

    Here's my big fish for the weekend. 23"-er. Not on a fly swatter, tho. 3/8 oz Kroc. 24" is my personal biggest. An old timer I used to work with talked about catching up to 8 pounders below the confluence of Herbert and Eagle rivers, where the old bridge to the boy scout camp used to be. Fishing eggs in the silt water.

    Yeah, go ahead and make fun of my fishing garb. **** near 80d F is enuff to melt any Alaskan.



    I'm not doing any alpine hunts this year. ACL surgery in early May and I had a setback in P/T - tore something in my hamstring. I may go hunt some low-lying meadows over on Admiralty, but no packing - only with a sherpa.

    Definately fish in the lower end. Water is very turbid right now so its tough fishing. Creek isn't low now either...Lots of melt-off

    Like the shot with Lions Head Pk in the background.

    Orvis split bamboo used to be the cat's ass in fly rods.

    Think they were a $grand$, easy, in the day.

    If it yanks his crank on humpies, I can dig it . . .

    Went out there last night, probably an hour and a half after high tide. Fish seemed to move away from the boat launch area and out to the middle. It would seem that and hour before and an hour after high tide would probably be the best bet...

    hehe...you just gotta be able to stand the bugs or have a nice breeze..

    Just before the sand-spit was where they were stacking last time I was out.


    Also sounds like pinks are starting to enter quite a few of the local flows...
