Summer 2015 Fieldwork Video

By Troutnut on June 28th, 2015, 2:10 am
This summer is intensely busy because we're beginning the first season of real fieldwork on a complicated new project. We just completed June sampling and I put together a video of what we're doing, including some really nice fish videos of feeding juvenile Chinook salmon, dolly varden, and Arctic grayling in interior Alaska:

More details about the project, including context for some of the things in the video, are available at the Drift Model Project website.

"Balloon Popper"...I like that Jason...

Looks interesting. Great video. I'm going to have to visit the other site and find out what those measuring things are you are placing in the water...?

Thanks for sharing.


The thickest midge hatch Iíve ever seen made it impossible to drive the boat without sunglasses, and even then I was constantly wiping my eyes to clear out the ones that slipped past the glasses.

Don't let Tony (Gutcutter) see this! He'll be on a plane heading your way by morning with his 4wt and his 10x tippet, and size 30 flies! :)

The grayling video is also very very cool. Thanks.
