By week six Talaheim was in a holding pattern just waiting for the silver glimmer of our second salmon run. But besides the lone silver salmon that was lost-then-caught on the Talachuitna in week five, Talaheim’s rivers have yet to be home to the 2014 silvers. Instead, by week six, we welcomed the stench of old and vulnerable king salmon, which in turn, had us sharing our water’s edge with these paw prints. We also welcomed a string of stunning weather, which may have been the reason for Strandline Lake to blow out above Triumverant Glacier, leaving us with these frozen spectacles. Now that’s stuff that makes for the ultimate Alaska fishing trip highlight reel!
