It’s been a loooong time since I had a chance to chase kings on my home stream, the American River…but the wait ends Saturday morning at dawn. Closed for three seasons in response to the Central Valley’s epic Chinook collapse, apparently biologists feel there will be enough fish in 2010 to allow for a limited, 1-month season.
Admittedly, I’m not expecting action on par with the good ol’ days (like 2002’s banner season in the photo above), but I think maybe the run’s on the rebound now and that we’ll have a shot at some nice fish. And, it’s just going to be nice to get back out there and even have a shot again after all this time off!
I’ll keep ya posted…
