Hancock here: It looks good for Dec. 10 on the Harrison!!
I have just heard from Jo Anne today (Sunday) that it was even better on the river today than where I was out yesterday. The river is still high but slowly coming down. I can't believe what I am about to say but -- I hope we get some cold weather soon! This will freeze up the mountain sides above the Harrison and hold back the rain as "ice and snow" as it should have for the past 3 weeks. Then the water source dries up, the river level drops and the thousands of salmon carcasses become available on the sandbar for our eagles. Voila!
If you have not been out on the River for a while, I will be out with Jo and Rob on both Saturday Dec 3rd and 10th. I write this as I got a call from Virginia saying a couple wanted to know the best week to arrive for a boat tour. Most years the peak number of eagles at the Harrison is between Dec. 10 to 15.
This is a good time for your Xmas present -- and to be out with a few thousand eagles. This is the period when we can get 10,000 plus on the river so let's hope.
