Fishing Report Week Ending 8/12/18

Lot's of fish in the river, and lot's of good people in my boat. What more could a fishing guide ask for?
I started the week fishing Team Minnesota. From left to right is Toby, Maggie, Shala, and Terry. Not only did they slay the fish in the boat, they also caught a ton of fish off the dock as well. It's always a positive when you can get out of bed in the morning and walk down to the dock and catch a salmon. Hey guys, I know this was your first trip to Alaska, but I really don't think it will be your last. Jane and I look forward to seeing you all again some time soon.
The next day I had a boat full of women, and they sure do like to fish (they fished two other days with Jeff King). Marjorie was all smiles with the first silver of the morning.
Barbara had to kiss her first silver salmon.
Carol and Kathy with back to back silvers.
Here's Team California showing off their haul.
It's not often I post multiple photos of the same people, but I really like the expressions on these two. Here's Chuck with his first silver.
His wife Pam was not be outdone.
Here's another one...
And another one....
What was fun fishing with Chuck and Pam, in addition to the conversations, is that we were able to catch fish using several different techniques. We caught them on Kwikfish, spinner baits, and on a bobber with salmon eggs. This is one of the many reasons why I like silver/pink fishing: there's not one method that will catch fish. Being able to try different things each day keeps it interesting for me.

My fishing forecast for the week ahead will be more of the same. This is the front of the peak of the first run of silvers/pinks, and unless all the fish came in early, we should all have sore backs and arms by the next report...I'll see you next week.

Nice, looks like if there's water underneath you there's fish on your line. 😊😊😊😊😊😊
