    Deshka is always busy, no matter the day. Plus you will need a boat or access to one.
    Also, no dipnetting going on at the Deshka.
    Hope I answered your Q.

    Wow. Talk about different kinds of fisheries.

    I guess for me it would all depend on whether I was going for fun or food.

    Copper for food and filling the freezer (or at least a pretty good chance of it).

    Deshka for more traditional, laid-back fishing with the potential to have fun with a king on rod and reel.

    With the way the King returns have been the last few years I would be hitting up the Copper.

    Deshka is shaping up to be a total bust,spent 12 hrs working the lower river today,no traffic at all,and fewer fish....go to the copper
