We’re slowly moving into Spring in Haines, Alaska. Cold temperatures are prevailing in spite of rapidly increasing daylight.
Salmon fry are beginning to emerge in the local rivers, supplying bounty for winter-starved, ravenous Cutthroat & Dolly Varden.
Love this walk. Filled with anticipation. Each week in Alaska holds something special on the rivers.
Sometimes you have to pose even with the one that got away…
What Cutthroat lack in size they easily make up in beauty…
Curious river otter, trying to figure out why it was taking us so long to catch fish.
Remnants of Fall. If this jaw were found somewhere other than Alaska, you’d think it was a dangerous predator. The morphological changes that Chum Salmon experience are utterly amazing.
We’re able to catch these beauties thanks to the Fall Chum run.
