Made it to Cooper Landing today on the Kenai/Russian River. There is a big fire that has been burning for a week and a half and this area is in the smoke danger zone. Marci is using a breathing mask to filter the air and the sun has trouble penetrating the smoke at times but for the most part it's not that heavy at ground level.
We leave here tomorrow morning, the smoke has been a constant. We went trout fishing on Kenai lake and down the river one day and I have fished the Russian River a couple of times. We have Sockeye in the freezer so all is well. Even with the smoke this place is beautiful, I can only hope the pictures convey that.
