With in the last several days the small creek below my house has become filled with spawning Coho salmon. The creek itself drains a series of small lakes and ponds. The main lake, Question lake, sits about 400 yds up stream from my house. Below my house the creek slows to a series of meandering channels and beaver ponds. The salmon have navigated about 75 miles up the Susitna River, a huge glacial river that spills into the Cook Inlet and the Pacific Ocean. From there they have negotiated about 10 miles of tributary to get to this point. Many will head even further up from here to continue their quest for the last hoorahs!

At night Black and Grizzly bears frequent the banks about 70 feet from my house plucking the struggling salmon out of the water as the hop over the small log jams.

A side note: Dozens of small Rainbow trout swarm around these bruits picking up stray eggs. They range from the very small 4" to medium 14". They still take dries too!
