As the summer of 2011 goes by, I'll be putting up photos and reports from Painter Creek.
I can't adequately express how special a place Painter Creek really is. It's only accessible by airplane (or boat if you want to travel 100 miles of open ocean and then 50+ miles up a river with rapids and gravel bars and boulders, eetc.). While there, you fish for four of the five kinds of Pacific salmon (kings, chum, sockeyes, and silver, or cohos) and beautiful resident and sea-run Dolly Varden.
This first set of photos is of a lynx that spent the evening in front of the lodge a couple nights ago. The lodge sits at an elevation of about 400 feet above sea level in an environment of cottonwood trees, meadows, and alder/willow brush. There is an incredible variety of wildlife, with the big mammals made up of Alaskan brown bears, wolves, moose, caribou, wolverines, and lynx.
The grassy lawn in front of the lodge is the nesting site for a colony of ground squirrels. Like ground squirrels in many wild environments, these guys multiply rapidly through the summer mating season. Being at the bottom of the mammal food chain, however, they also make a very attractive target for both winged and four-legged predators.
Here's what one of the ground squirrels looks like normally:
Here's what the lynx looked like while standing guard over one of the squirrel holes (just to the left in this photo):
And here's the lynx just managing to catch one of the squirrels:
It's a tough life up there. I've watched raptors flash down out of the sky and haul these squirrels away, and I've also seen a wolf camped out about where the lynx was. Despite all the predation, the ground squirrel population seems to do extremely well and there are always plenty of them when the lodge opens each summer.
The photos came from Paul Tickner, who guides anglers during the summer at Painter Creek Lodge. According to Paul, they watched that evening as this lynx stalked and captured two of the ground squirrels.
