Dinner on the water

A bald eagle fends off a speculating magpie from his meal of salmon on the Anchor River on Sunday, June 25, 2017 near Anchor Point, Alaska. Though the Anchor River is closed to sportfishing for king salmon now, the salmon are still returning to the river, with about 4,064 kings past the weirs on the north and south forks of the river, within the escapement goal of 3,800–7,600 fish, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Though the Anchor River is closed to king salmon fishing, the Ninilchik River is open 24/7 for hatchery king salmon fishing only. (Photo by Elizabeth Earl/Peninsula Clarion)
