Out in the Bristol Bay region the rivers have been closed to protect spawning rainbows. When I was a kid the ADFG had a bounty on rainbows, .25 a tail.
In any event that changed at midnight, hope you all have a wonderful day my guys are content to start at 0500. Image

Appears to have been a beautiful day for getting on the streams. Hard to believe that there was a time when rainbows were a menace. While not official policy, I've witnessed a similar attitude generally expressed toward Dolly Varden here in BC. Yeah, rainbows and other fish do eat salmon eggs, but there is still sufficient escapement. Beautiful picture.

A bright, lovely fish. No doubt a good fight to bring her to hand.

Yes, a fat rainbow can definitely get the heart beating wildly. "The sex dungeon," you say? I'll have to look that one up.

Great photos! I miss Alaska. Last trip was in 2018. Hmmm...

Might be about time to fix that, next year. :grin:

Brooks river today, I know Guy has been there. Brooks falls is the spot they have cameras so you can watch the bears from America. Slow start today, water is cold, we finally put mice on and it was on. Image
