    Default Deshka Success..

    Figured we would take a drive up North and fish the Deshka for the morning and glad we did. Wife got this beauty about 6:10 on the ol' Vibrax. Did some CnR and had a great time. Rained abit but turned out to be a great day on the river with little to no wind. Lots of boats and numerous fish taken from what I seen. Nothing really big yet but next weekend we will be heading back up so maybe then. Glad I got away from Ship to regain my sanity.LOL.

    That's awesome. Did you fish on your boat or with a guide?
    I heard the deshka has been hot and cold.
    Looks like it was hot today.
    Nice Fish!

    went there this morning with a buddy. I caught my first fish at 6:05, got 4 10-15 pounders before I got this one at 8 nothing to special but a keeper. My buddy couldnt catch a thing until I gave him my pole then he caught a smaller one and we decided to keep it and get outta there. A lot of boats for a monday, and a lot of fish being caught. ill be back thereAttachment 49681 tomorrow

    I was up there hanging out with a Hippie in my Wooldridge AK today. Three straight 3am starts and I think I am going to take a couple days off! Today was all about the kids so having fun was the focus. Ended up not getting a thing but had a great time and the weather was fantastic!!

    Your kids nailed it "I'd rather be not catching fish than be home".

    Skookum Hobbits to be sure.

    Thanks again for a good day man.

    Wait...what??? Somehow in the busyness of my past two weeks I missed that you were back home. When did that happen? Good sir, beers are in order.

    yes I am HOME! It happened quick when it finally did happen. Between training up my replacement and spending time with the family I have been pretty busy and out of contact with almost everyone. I am free till the 19th then a week in Gulf Shores AL before heading back to work the end of the month. I am sure I can slip in some time for a beer

    What? You're going back??

    I may just have to drop by the mouth of the Deshka on Friday morning and say hello on our way to the Yetna. We're probably heading up the Yetna from Friday through Sunday, fishing the Russian Monday through Wednesday, then going packrafting/sheep scouting for a few days. I may have to catch you next time around.
