Kyle, Jake and Jake aboard the F/V Northland are ready for some real fishing to happen. They've bounced between Egegik, AK and Naknek, AK fishing a few days and then having a day or two off due to mandatory fishing closures. Enough salmon need to go up each river before the biologists give the go ahead to allow a lot of fishing openers. In Bristol Bay days when you can't fish often mean that you're hanging out in a cramped little boat or you put the boat up high and dry on the riverbank at low tide and then get a good mud walk in. The fishing has been fairly slow with most days bringing in only a few hundred pounds of salmon. It's too soon to say if the run is late or going to come in much less than projected. They are headed out for another fishing opener tonight. Tomorrow is a big day because every boat has to drop their permit card in a river district. If you decide to change districts after dropping your card you are penalized by not being allowed to fish for a period of time. If this forced closure hits you at the peak of the season it can really cut into your yearly catch. Where will they drop their card!?
