King Salmon Fishing in Willow

King Salmon fishing opened at midnight on Friday June 25th. Tom and Elizabeth invited us up to their cabin to enjoy opening night.
We took their boat out on Saturday and enjoyed a chilly but exciting day fishing.

Ryan started a new type of fishing.... no... not really, you'll never guess what he and Tom were trying to find...

While Tom and Ryan caught the boat anchor before it drifted down river... Kelly managed to get her fishing hook snagged on one of her gloves. While trying to free one glove she ultimately caught both gloves on the same hook.
We drifted to another fishing spot and both Ryan and Tom were able to get a fish on!
Back at the house, we cooked half of Ryan's first King Salmon.

We paired the salmon with homemade sourdough made from a 25-year-old sourdough starter.
