Fishing on the Russian River
Monday, June 29, 2009
Cooper Landing, Alaska, United States
The people leaving with their catch said there were a lot more salmon up by the Russian River falls, which is a 2-mile hike. They saw a sow with 2 cubs and another big bear up there while they were fishing. They were also carrying guns. It was dinner time, started raining, so we quit. Left the river again with no fish--Darn!
Walked up a different trail than how we came and ended up in one of the campgrounds. Luckily a guy was there to tell us how to get to the parking lot.
After dinner, went up to the Lodge; the path to the river was closed at night because of bears (there sure are a lot of them around here).
