Dent Rapids

Day 5 of the Alaska Flotilla – Dent Rapids, Devil’s Hole…dead fish! Saw strange natural phenomena; thousands of dead hake (fish) floating, distended bellies up, near the rapids. Seems it happens this time every year, especially at the full/new moon (now) when powerful currents force fish to surface so quickly that their internal swim bladders explode! Our boats had an easy time with the rapids. Mark timed our transit perfectly! .After all, he is the Ports and Passes guy.
