An amazing king salmon adventure
I am very fortunate to have the time and opportunity to explore many new fisheries and revisit old ones that are etched in my memory, however, this past week I was able to hook numerous fresh king salmon up to 50 lbs. using only floating line with unweighted flies. This was due to the fact of the remoteness of the this river and the lack of any pressure. I suspect I could of landed a few on dries if I had any with me due to the fact the fish were in very shallow water under 3 feet in most cases. The largest King landed was 46 inches and we had several doubles and triples and we estimated that for every 10 cast we would be into a fish. About a third of them were chrome bright with sea lice still attached and the others were just beginning to turn. Even in this day and age, it is nice to know there are still amazing places out there untouched by but a few.
