    Default Hope Humpies?

    Hello All!

    How is Hope looking for humpies? Should be soon, but am looking for firsthand reports. Thanks and happy fishing!

    Cheers,

    Default Hope Humpies

    Fish three hours before high tide on July 5, 2010. Use half ounce pink pixees. You'll have a blast!

    Do black bears frequent the area this time of year? Still up high looking for grass and such? Not going to "fish" if you catch my drift. Have buddies looking for a bear. Not sure where we are gonna head to. This location was mentioned.

    Default bears

    i don't think many bears are up in grass any more. not that i have seen. if you can find a clearing along the lower areas of resurrection creek to watch might be good, especially when the pinks hit the creek. for that area, that would be my best idea.

    Took a drive down there, no one had caught anything. One guy said he saw one. Not saw one caught, just saw one.

    I hit Bird tonight, not many fish yet. Saw one silver (could have been a small king, dude was accross the river but it looked mighty big to be a silver) caught and 1 pink. No rollers or torpedos.

    Thanks for the update! At least you saw one.. A lot can change in a day or two. If anyone else happens to head down that way over the next couple of days and update would be much appreciated.

    Default No luck with humpies

    Stopped by Hope with my father-in-law on the way back from a Homer/Seward two day jount. No luck, didn't see a thing. But got the lines wet at least and spent some quality time on the river. Anyone have any good leads on where I can take him to get some quick fish? Saw a few guys at Bird Creek but from earlier post it might still be early. Thinking of heading out to Jim's or the Race for a shot. Tight lines....

    hoosier, quick fish might be a little difficult for a few days until the pinks show in mass. I was at the tailrace yesterday, a few rollers, saw 1 red on a stringer. There might be some reds at Jim's.

    Default Hope Humpies

    Stopped by Resurrection Creek in Hope last Monday morning in time to catch the peak high tide. Fished over three hours from near the mouth up about a mile. Water was clear but very high and fast. Saw no fish roll on tide (unusual for this time of year), only a seal bobbing up here and there. Caught and released one semi-bright male pink a ways above the bridge and observed a chrome chum near tidewater. Very slow fishing overall, runs appear late here and elsewhere around Turnagain Arm.
