Well, we sent Sterling and my brother Kevin home without them catching any fish. Now we have Debra and Ron here. Yesterday they went out halibut fishing with Garry and brought home 55 pounds of beautiful filets. Today we went to the Kenai and Russian river.....not a single fish caught. I hooked one for just a few seconds; that was the extent of any fishing excitement.
Here are a few pictures from the last few days.
We took Sterling over to Seward before heading to Anchorage airport. We visited the Edge Glacier. The foilage along the trail was quite lush.
I took Kevin and Sterling to Homer one day, since the fishing was so poor. We visited the Russian Orthodox church and graveyard.
Mouth of the Kasilof River during dip net season.
The dip net season opened on the Kasilof River. Only Alaska residents can do this type of fishing. It is fun watching these families bring in their salmon for the year.
The mama moose made a visit to the park so Debra could snap a picture.
Russian river fishing on July 5. We didn't catch anything, but the river is lovely.
