The mosquitos are out in force! This is one of the worst mosquito summers on record in SouthCentral Alaska and it is making the fishing not so much fun :-(
Trying to fish on any river right now is tough because of the constant swatting you have to do to keep the mosquitos from eating you alive. Bug nets and lots of dope are in order this year on the river! Watch out for the mosquito dope though as deet will ruin the waterproofing on your jacket and eat through your fishing line. If you rub repellent on your body and still have it on your hands while you fish it will weaken your line. Just a tip!!
Keep fishing, and swatting!
