Alaska 2013, Day 29, Palmer to Homer
Sunday June 30, 2013
Stopped at the Fred Meyer in Anchorage for fishing license. I got a non-resident season plus king tag just in case I fish kings on the Klutina. There is also a Fred Meyer as you come into Homer.
Overcast and rainy today.
They were fishing the Russian River and the park at downtown Soldotna.
A moose crossed the road ahead of us in the valley after entering the Kenai. We saw a moose when coming up the grade after Deep Creek. It was pretty close to the road and several houses.
Saw several eagles fly over the road. One tried to land on something in the road in front of us.
We saw halibut at the cleaning stations at Ninilchik and Deep Creek.
Overcast and rainy on the Kenai, could not see across to Illyamna.
Got into Homer at 8 PM.
They were fishing the Homer fishing hole, saw a couple small salmon caught.
The Homer Halibut Derby board had 197 lb fish take the June prize.
We saw over 2 dozen sea otters close to the spit when we drove down to Land's End at 9 PM.
289 miles today.
6438 miles so far.
