Well I don’t know what to say, but the fishing is so slow. I don’t know what is up with the fish this year. Some fish came in, and then water went up, and so did the fish. A week later more came in, the water went up and so did the fish. I have never seen the fishing this slow, this time of year, in this river. I have been pulling my hair out waiting for something to happen, but nothing is happening. I don’t know what to say, except if it doesn’t pick up soon, I think all the guides here are going to go crazy. I have been with some Austrian’s the last couple of days. I have become friends with George Marberger over the last couple of years, and he brought some of his friends here to fish this week, and it has been very slow. There is one pic of a 40″ fish we got today. (Pic #3), so it was not a total bust. The Yakutat Lodge has the best of the best for guides, but we are only averaging around 3 fish per boat each day. I also had the pleasure of fishing with Frank Amato, (The owner of Salmon, Trout, Steelhead Magazine.), but even with a very good fisherman, as the week before with Pudge and Sandy, the fishing was good, but the catching was real bad. We got just one fish that day, and Frank never even touched one. That’s fishing I guess. So with that said, I haven’t written anything lately, because nothing has happened. Here are some pic’s of some fish from the last 4 or 5 days. The pic’s at the end are fish I have caught this week on the tide in the evening. If your reading this Woobank, I think when you get here the fish will really be showing up. Looking forward to it bud.
They will show soon, They have to!!!

The Forty incher is a beautiful fish. Congrats to that Skillful Angler! Aaron, you need to teach Indy to either take the pictures or hold the measuring tape. I think she can learn to do one of them, She’s the smartest dog I know.
