The counts at the Russian say it all. I walked from Grayling to the ferry and never bothered dipping a hook. On a scale of 1 to 10 gotta be a 2.
To repeat the answer I gave the gent from Minn - the limit is only 3 at the Russian not 6 like the kenai.
Bing's was CROWDED - by people, so I pushed down to Soldotna. Not bad, but not jumping hot. Limit of 6 in 3 hours and mostly big fish. Lots of nice people - and thanks for netting my fish. Started to feel guilty there.
A couple of words to the wise. It was quite clear that ADF&G were observing catch from the other side of the river. An illegal snag is a kept fish that is hooked some place other in the mouth. They are not birdwatching with those binos BTW.
Hoping the fish will hit the Russian soon. Until then, I'll try to follow the fish.
