Fishing season is approaching. We’ll find out what to expect in this year’s salmon runs. Last year was dreadful for kings, poor for silvers, and red hot for reds across Upper Cook Inlet. Do we know why? Will we see a repeat? And how do these predictions get made? We’ll have a biologist from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and two angling experts, to  give fishing predictions, tips and ideas, as well as talking about gear, timing, trends, and dreams–where would you go fishing, if you could go anywhere?
