The salmon season in Southeast Alaska has produced a interesting twist in the last few weeks.  After a record breaking run of early pinks in July, the fish have tapered off to a trickle.  The closures of Area 1 and Area 2 have prompted many fishermen to worry about the rest of the season.   We are currently on the rush north to hope for another big push of fish.  If it doesn’t happen in the next week, the season might have quite a surprise ending.  Good Luck to everyone out there.  Let’s hope the fish are still pouring in.  Eat more salmon!
