Well, as it seems to always be the case with the Copper River Salmon season opener, the weather is playing its part to make it as difficult as possible. With 40 knot winds and seven foot seas, the fishing has been close to impossible. Alaska Airlines has plans to fly 10 tons of this flavorful fish to Seattle for arrival on Friday. Let's cross our fingers and hope to see that shipment made. The season is only for 12 hours today.
