Ended up going back out last night with one of the guides here on the Kulik River. We were the only folks out on teh river in the evening light of Alaska. We fished to rising fish on a nice mellow flat and had a perfect evening.

The fish are eating Sockeye fry in this part of the drainage when you see them rising. The fry are about an inch long and very skinny, plus don't swim well. So, even though it is a riseform that you are looking for, the actual rise is a little different than a trout eating a bug on the surface. We'd find a rise and make a downstream cast to the fish to get them. It worked well.

Weather is less breezy today with high clouds and in the low 50's. We are sticking close to camp today on the Kulik.
