    What to use for fishing....

    by herzog63 Updated Sep 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Olds River

    Favorite thing: There are several techniques for successful fishing. Pink salmon like small spinners and flys. Silver Salmon take a #3or #4 spinner. They will also take many patterns of flys and quite a few guys like the egg drifting method. Personally I like fly fishing the best but have used all methods. The Chum Salmon seem to respond to the larger spinners and spoons and flys.

    Spend an afternoon at the Olds River

    by herzog63 Written Sep 8, 2003

    Olds River

    Favorite thing: The Olds River is a very popular spot for tourists as it has a good run of 3 species of Salmon (Silver, Chum And Pink) and the drive isn't quite as long as going all the way to Pasagshak. The Olds is close to the Kalsin Bay Inn and the Northland Ranch. For myself I prefer the fast waters of the Mouth of the Pasagshak River which is 10 miles further then the Olds River.

    Upper Olds River Late Autumn

    Upper Olds River

    Favorite thing: This is a shot that I took on the late Autumn Chiniak Road trip that my buddy Nick (Kaloz) and I did last year. I thought it was interesting that I had basically the same shot but at a different time of year.

    Upper Olds River

    by herzog63 Written Sep 7, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Olds River

    Favorite thing: From the side of the road you can see that the Olds River meanders through flatlands making it's way to the foot hills of the mountains where it is formed by many feeder streams. This shot is taken on Sept 7 2003. Which is just at the end of summer. Compare this to the next tip. Basically taken from the same spot but in the late Autumn.

    Fondest memory: On this day the river is full of Pink Salmon and you can also spot a few of the Silver and Chum Salmon mixed in the schools also. There isn't any fishing allowed on the upper side of the river from August 1st to September 15th. That is to allow for a certain amount of the salmon to escape and multilply and keep the stocks strong for future years.

    Kalsin River

    by herzog63 Written Sep 7, 2003

    Kalsin River

    Favorite thing: The Kalsin River isn't one of the hot spots for fishing although there are Pink Salmon that do run up this river. Quite often during the summer there isn't barely any water at all in the river and I've seen the river go weeks without flowing!! Just some small pools that aren't even connected to the rest of the river. So it's amazing that salmon even run up this as it appears to be more of a runoff river than an actual fulltime River. As we passed by it this morning (0/07/03) there was a school of Pink Salmon in the shallow waters near the bridge.

    Northern Yarrow

    Favorite thing: There quite a few different flowers to been seen by the Flora lovers. The one in the photo is Northern Yarrow. My favorites are the Fireweed and Nootka Lupine!! I'd need a flower identification book to know the names of all of the flowers that grow in the area.

    Fishing Kalsin Pond

    by herzog63 Written Sep 6, 2003

    Kalsin Pond

    Fondest memory: In the month of September into early October it is quite common to see the fisherman fishing from the their tubes or small boats on Kalsin Pond. You can find it on the right-hand side of the road at mile 31. It is a great fun to fish near the culvert just after high tide also as the Silver Salmon will have enough water to get through to the pond side at that time. At low tide they can't make it!! It is a small pond but the action and the Salmon are huge!!
