Still No Fish

sunny 63 °F

It is a good thing that we have all summer to try to catch our year's supply of salmon. Everything is about 2 weeks late. The King and Sockeye fishing has been really slow, with very low numbers being reported. I am staying positive; I've heard that when the rivers rise a bit more and the water temperature goes up, then the fish will start coming up the rivers. Today we went to the Kenai, Russian River confluence and had no luck at all. We saw a few people catch fish, but it was nothing like last year. Oh well, another day!

Our friend, Sterling Hlll from Cascade, Idaho is visiting with us for 2 weeks. We have taken him fishing several times but since it has been so poor, we have done a bit more sight seeing. We made the drive to Homer on Sunday. It was a beautiful day and we were able to see the Aluetian Mountain Range across Cook Inlet. However, it was partly cloudy in Homer so the Kachemak mountains weren't quite as spectacular.

The farthest west of any North American Highway, near Deep Creek, Alaska. Across Cook Inlet is the Mnt. Illiania

View of the beach at Deep Creek after low tide. Skidders launch the boats out in the inlet. Quite a sight to see; boat trailers down the beach as far as you can see.

Checking out just a few of the 71 volcanoes along the Aluetian islands.

That is Mnt. Augustine way in the background. It is one of the active volcanoes.

Welcome to Homer, a small town with a 'fishing' problem!

Sterling is hoping to catch a King just like this one (Oh, by the way...this one IS FAKE!)
