The start of the 2021 trapping playlist. It should be 3 or 4 videos long by now but zero snow. This is the beginning

anyways.

Gotta be a river. I saw a sheefish in the net. Big whitefish also. Don't catch those in lakes.

Nope the Peel River. Starts up in the Yukon near Mayo Yukon and flows north through the Peel River Water shed. The all Canadian route to the Klondike Gold Fields at the turn of the Century. Crosses the Yukon border then passes the community of Fort MacPherson then Aklavik and eventually dumps into Mackenzie Bay and the Arctic Ocean.

May not be the norm in lakes, but I know some guys that take them out of lakes in under ice nets. I heard that when the water is high in spring time the fish go in and some don't make it back out when the water goes back down.

Thanks for the info! I know one guy in Fort Mcpherson. Did a river rafting trip with him two summers ago. He doesn't hunt, fish, or trap, but will join those who do and help out. He sure enjoys the outdoors and photography.

Nice day fishing muskrat. I have two nets out now. Been catching pretty good so far. Not quite that good though.

Around here the beaver dammed off alot of whitefish streams like you have there, and they cant to get back out to the river from the lakes in fall. We bust them open sometimes a bit, and grab fish as they go over the spillway, and let them out.

You are correct on the Sheefish and lakes. we had a lake like that near the mountains. But the river cut into it and they can come and go as they wish now.

How far up did you start your river rafting trip? Bonetplume River? I hear that is a beutifull trip though the big canyons of the upper Peel.

It is not the best spot anyways, I mostly set it there because it is so handy for the school to walk classes down. If I catch a couple egg fish iam happy. The dog will eat a fish once in a while

I pulled my net out a while ago the whitefish eggs started to get runny and the meat soft so pulled it out. Lake fish are better eating but I have to find a good lake. Most of the good fish lakes are cutting out and drying up. From the banks eroding and cutting into the main rivers. Side effect of climate change I suppose. Too much rain in the summer washes out the permafrost.

The porcupine caribou herd is going through close to town and lots of hunters out. So I have been busy monitoring. No snow so I have been going out by ATV.

We were on the John and Koyukuk Rivers in Alaska.

Whoalla you really made a long trip to get to Fort MacPherson from there you sure you were not in Fort Yukon? I don't think there is a pass over the mountains to get to the Peel watershed from those rivers.

Never been to the Peel. Haha! The man I was with on the trip was from Fort McPherson and traveled to Alaska to join me for the journey. Started in Anaktuvak Pass and went downriver to Allakaket.

I heard you say "not one salmon" what kind of salmon do you have there? Seems a long ways inland for salmon.

Last year we got lots of salmon, Chum, Pink and the odd Chinook. Mainly Chum. Last year I caught a couple they are in a different video. The caught lots in the ocean also last year but hardly any this year.

That sounds like an incredible adventure. Some big mountains in that area, must have seen lots of porcupine caribou too through that area.
