  • Pinks at Bird creek and Hope

    Saddly me and my freinds have had to cancel our Alaska trip this year .we make the trip on odd numbered years and enjoy the pink runs at Hope and Bird .Do they still run these creeks on even numbered years As we hope to make the trip next year.
    Cheers Graham. <*(((<{

    Hey Graham--Even numbered years are the best at Bird and Resurection in Hope. Come around july 20th and they should be thick. Pinks are one of the most explosive game fish pound for pound I see why you enjoy fishing them.

      By explosive you must be talking about the hump on the males

          No I'm talking about the fight. Oh and the table fare is marvelous when they're ocean bright. One of the healthiest foods on the planet...
          Sure Graham, PM when you're on your way and I'll let you know of some better spots than Bird Creek..

            Even my 8 year daughter said to me last year, "Dad, these pinks don't fight very hard". I laughed my ass off.

              anybody who's ever sight fished for pinks on the flats in saltwater will have a whole new appreciation for humpies they are my favorite salmon to eat when fresh
              I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

                Odd numbered years have been much better. This last year was the worst ever,this year is supposed to be awsome..

                  We fished Hope in mid July, both 2007 and 2009 and it was loaded.

                    Monkey these guys will diss pinks because its popular to diss pinks, sheep do whats popular not what right. Like I said pinks are lb for lb one of the feistiest salmonoids there is. Plus pinks have the least amount of mercury of the 5 pacific salmon. Also they sit number three on the good cholesterol chart right behind sockeyes, kings being 1st, chums 4th and the mighty coho is the least. Thats right coho salmon are loaded w/ the bad cholesterols and have very little omega 3 making the silver salmon the least healthy of the salmonoids. Pink salmon are awesome, thankyou God!
