Making Lemonade out of Lemons

What a great state Alaska is. Although we can't king fish on the Kenai there are plenty of other Alaskan adventures to experience. Clamming, hiking, saltwater fishing, red salmon fishing, trout fishing, pike fishing, rafting, bear and glacier viewing are among many alternatives to king fishing. Imagine booking a trip to Kearney, Nebraska to view the annual migration of sand hill cranes. Imagine if the cranes did not show. What plan B could you muster up in Kearney, Nebraska?

Jane and I have contacted all of our June clients and the overwhelming majority have decided that a "plan B" is great. A few plans have been adjusted but we will have the good fortune to see our customers and friends in the coming month. Although I won't be guiding my usual June schedule and the closure will affect any last minute fishing clients, Jane and I will be just fine.

Long live the kings!

We'll be coming as planned. We just wanted to fit in a king trip but it's not the only reason to visit your Great State!

Keith, I have seen the cranes in Nebraska and it's no big deal. In fact, rather disappointing. We just happened to be driving through during the "crane" thing. Maybe you were with?
There are a multitude of things to see and do in the beautiful state of ALaska(eating Halibut on a stick in Homer is one of my favorites as you know)Wish I could be there-Cindy and I are working on it so will let you know, but the problem is she only gets 4 days off in a row but like I said we are working on it.

Hey Mom, thanks for the comments. Obviously if you can make it in June we will have lots of time to visit with you....kind of nice not to pressure you with the notion of fishing.

Like you said, there's tons more to do in Kenai Alaska than fish Kings. Even in Kearney Nebraska there is a Cabela's! When we came to Alaska for the first time in late June, 2000 the king fishery was closed down. We still had a blast driving to Homer. I see the fish have come on strong the last few days. Here's hoping it will continue. Are there many rainbows in your area?
