Alaska fishing and hunting on the Kasilof river!  Yesterday morning my friend Brian Richards of wilderness way in Soldotna Alaska and i set out on a day trip that would end up for us to tell our kids about one day. We put my private boat in the river with 5 rods one shotgun and a good dog for an 18 mile venture.

By the end of the trip we had taken 5 ducks, caught silver salmon, dolly vardon and hooked a steelhead. Any person that takes a day trip in the outdoors can appreciate this kind of adventure.

The best part of our day was watching Tok my black lab do what he lives to do!! ( hunt ). After a year of being cooped up he flawlessly retrieved all the birds and three of them I know we would have never found without him!

He is not the best bird dog but it’s great to see him after the start of his second hunting season really pull it together.

I love to fish but live to hunt and to share it with him is a whole new experience.

He can be so lazy too!!

Remember when you head out on an Alaska river trip that the tides near the inlets can be huge. A high tide and a little wind can hold you up for hours if you aren’t prepared for it. Plan on an outgoing tide if you don’t have a little kicker to help you out.
