Well the water has dropped back into fishable shape, and the fish are everywhere. Along with the drop back fall fish, the spring fish are finally showing up, in what seems to be good numbers. I have seen, and clients have caught, about 30 springer’s in the last 2 days. We had several reel catastrophes, and an Eagle steal a fish off the line this week, but the bite was so good it did not matter. My two clients of Yakutat Lodge were brothers that obviously spend some time together fishing. They were fly rod guys, but not necessarily strictly fly fisherman. We packed their fly lines with weight and went to work. The first day was good, but the next day was great. I believe they hooked nearly 50 fish in the two days we spent together. Here are some great pics and a pic or two of the thieving eagle.
Tommy and I also got out and cut out some nasty trees today, and after we finished an hour and a half cutting on one tree, we spent about an hour trying out some new gear on the river. Well not new. We used aeropuffs Ha Ha.
Good luck out there.
