Well today started out with about 6 inches of new snow. When I went to sleep it was clear, and when I woke up I had to shovel out my boat. The falling snow made for a beautifully drift down the river, although the fish were huddled up keeping warm somewhere under the log jams. I took the new manager of the Yakutat Lodge (Dan) and his daughter (Misty), down for a day of fishing before she heads back down south. Well the day started out with Dan hooking up as soon as he put his plug in the water, but it came unbuttoned soon after. After floating about 10 miles we started seeing some nice fresh fish coming up. We hooked up a couple times, but we just couldn't hold onto them. So after some real disappointments, we finally hit some nice fish that we were able to get to the bank. Here are some pics from the snowy weather day.
Good luck out there.
