Somehow, the summer blew right on by this year…and it marked the first time in over a dozen years that I didn’t go to Alaska. So, I was feeling kinda sad about all that and started looking at pix from trips past. That, of course, led to some video watching and that’s how we ended up here, with me re-posting a little travelogue vid from a few years back.
So, I apologize if you’ve already seen this one, but it was kinda like therapy for me last night. Maybe one of these days, I’ll get around to making a movie from our mission there last season!
When you get right down to it, is there anything cooler than having a chrome Chinook pump your rod on a crisp fall morning?
Here’s a beautiful Chinook one of my clients caught this morning on the Sacramento River. Each one of these amazing creatures is a gift…we admired this bright hen for several minutes before putting her in the box. After our Chinook collapse a few years back, I’ll never take one for grated again…
Happy Fall everyone!
The Klamath River’s chinook salmon run is forecasted to be massive this year and the fishing should be epic! The bite is already going strong and will only get better over the next few weeks!
The above photo was sent to me by guide John Klar and the lower from Mike Stratman, who are obviously having some fun on the Big K!
Okay, so it does get scorching hot down here in California during salmon season, but the warm weather does have its upsides…
But don’t think for a second it’s all looks and no substance here! While fishing with my good friend Mike Moore of Valley Guide Service, Amanda Bess put on a back-bouncing clinic on Sunday on the Sac that put most dudes on the river to shame.
Bess put a nice 40-pound limit of kings in the box, and rumor has it, Moore is currently considering giving his deckhand, Hunter Gibson, his unconditional release and signing her for the rest of the season :)
