    This one's my favorite.
    Offline right now due to it being dark, but during the day it's awesome.

    Imagine if they had one of those during a 38 million run like in Bristol Bay. The whole picture would be solid fish for weeks.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Actually is wouldn't, it would be solid fish for a couple days on a few streams though, typically the week of the peak you see about 500-1000 fish per bank every ten minutes for a week. Remember a 38 million fish run in bristol is only like 10 million escaping.

    A lot of fish for sure, and pretty amazing to watch but not solid for weeks. Plus if there was 14 dams there wouldn't be 38 million fish.

    Believe me watching bristol bay salmon is what I do for a living... Pretty neat to watch, also makes you realize the folks fishing in the kenai scare a lot of fish, if only they could see them.
