For the wildlife photography buff there could be an Eagle shot of a lifetime waiting. June on the Yetna River is Eagle time. The eagles follow the Hooligan (a large Smelt or relatives of them) in from the Cook Inlet when they come by the millions to spawn in fresh water. Seeing the Hooligan, also called Candlefish, is something else Alaskan. They swarm into the rivers creating a living ribbon of life that stretches a hundred miles and farther from the salt water to way above Skwentna and even further up. The eagles follow and take in the feast that the Hollies provide. It is not unusual to spot 50 or more different Bald Eagles on a boat ride to the cabin and many will be pretty photogenic.
