Over 90k sockeye ran up the Kenai yesterday. That's a lot of fish!!

I enjoy the updates to this post - thanks for that. Completely jealous, but keep em coming.
I noticed you have a dip packed in one of the pictures. Just curious as to what a can of dip costs in Alaska....
Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

Over 400k sockeye in the past two days!!!!!
With Anchorage in my rear view mirror I was headed down the Seward Highway and off to meet up with a buddy to fish the Kenai.
Unfortunately, this isn't my boat, but I wish it was!
We fished the lower Kenai and launched at Centennial park located in the city of Soldotna. Luckily the majority of the reds were up near the Russian River, so the crowds and boat traffic was minimal. That, and kings went to catch and release and the season officially closed Saturday night on the Kenai. A whole four days early!
The fishing was steady through out the day and I couldn't even tell you how many dollies we caught. We got into some bows, but it seemed the dollies were being rather greedy on Saturday.
A few of the better bows from Saturday.
My buddy hit a silver swinging a flesh fly, but I didn't get a picture. I didn't hit any fish swinging, but hopefully more silvers roll in and my luck on the swing changes.
After a solid 12 hours on the water it was time to head back to the big city after a decent meal.
Headed back on the Seward Highway at 11pm
The view at midnight just before getting into Anchorage.
