September 2010


I took my mother and step father fishing, and we ventured downriver into the tidal zone looking for fresh arriving silver salmon, but did not see or hook any fish. After spending a few hours fishing several spots down river I looked above the boat launch at a close spot where the salmon sometimes like to stage. There was already two boats fishing there, and I noticed one of the boats had a single silver salmon on a stringer.

The silver salmon run has been tapering off rapidly now for more than a week, and we called all the remaining groups we had booked and gave them the option of receiving a refund or fishing. Every group opted for a refund after hearing our most recent fishing report, so I pulled our last boat off the river and have wrapped up our guided salmon fishing charters for the season.

Thank You! to all our guests for another memorable year, and now is a good time to start thinking about reservation dates for the 2011 season. We`ve already reserved some 2011 dates, but most dates and times remain available at this time. Give us a call at 907-746-2199 if you would like to discuss the options.

Congratulations to FIshtale guests Amy Hall who won first place in the women`s division of the Mat-Su Silver Salmon derby, and also congratulations to Amy`s son Kevin, who won first place in the Youth Division of the same derby.
