Lynn Bennett, in background with a throw net; Kirk McMeen, in diving gear, and Steve Wolf, with a dip net, join in the personal-use fishery last week at Sweetheart Creek near Port Snettisham, about 40 miles south of Juneau. Several people were also casting and fly fishing, and several brown bears made their presence known. The harvest was smaller than expected, with sockeye outnumbered by pinks by at least 30-to-1.
