Fly Out Fishing

July 31 Doug redeemed his birthday present and Greg tagged along. It was an amazing day!
Nikiski from above.
(I think it looks a lot like when you fly into Houston - Texas that is, not Alaska.)
Big River Lake
First we went Silver Salmon fishing
I was the first to catch my limit
And I think maybe the biggest fish too
Blue Steel
Jake Doth, our guide, in the back
They had this amazing peat floating dock.
It was so squishy I thought for sure it would sink or I would fall through.

The red salmon were running and they were jumping all over these rocks on their way up stream. It is crazy to see just how many of them are in the water swimming under the boat.
The limit is 3 fish each, but we only have two hands!
