Alaska's Mt. Redoubt volcano a beautiful sight for anglers--so far

June 3, 2009 |  1:21 pm


Fishing season has begun in Alaska and anglers visiting the Kenai Peninsula will want to tote cameras regardless of how well the salmon and halibut are cooperating.

That's because Mt. Redoubt volcano is erupting in a mild manner--for the time being--and generating spectacular imagery. The accompanying photo was taken May 26 by Dennis Josefczyk, from the peninsula, which is about 50 miles east of the volcano, across the Cook Inlet.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory reports low seismic activity and as long as that remains the case travel disruptions should be minimal or nonexistent. However, Redoubt's mood could change instantaneously so visitors are encouraged to check the AVO website and consult their airline carriers in the days leading to their departure date.

Good fishing everyone. Hope you enjoy the show.
