A quick fishing detour from a work trip

By Troutnut on May 29th, 2020
I spent (Spent: The wing position of many aquatic insects when they fall on the water after mating. The wings of both sides lay flat on the water. The word may be used to describe insects with their wings in that position, as well as the position itself.) most of the month of May in Alaska, and most of that sitting in an AirBnB in North Pole abiding by the required 2-week indoor quarantine for travelers from out-of-state due to Covid-19. After the quarantine came a frantic sequence of fieldwork to train the technician we hired to complete our second summer of data collection on a study of food resources for juvenile Chinook Salmon in the Chena River. However, our weather-dependent sampling schedule allowed for a break from May 29th-31st, and I drove south to chase rainbow trout.

I tried fishing the East Fork Chulitna River near the mouth of Hardage Creek. It's a pretty little creek mouth and not difficult to access, but the mixing zone between the clear tributary and more turbid river was all over shallow, fast water and there wasn't really any good habitat to hold fish.
