Hello again, Jim!

Here are the other options for positions here in Haines, Alaska with ADF&G for out of state applicants:

Fish and Wildlife Technician 3 (PCN 11-1662):

This position is the crew lead for the Chilkoot Lake Weir. It's a visual enumeration weir, so you have to physically count fish as they pass through. All five species swim up this river. There is a cabin to stay in on-site when on the clock, and there are a lot of bears roaming around feeding on salmon as you count.

Fish and Wildlife Technician 2 (PCNs 11-1124, 11-1165, 11-1703):

These three positions act as crew members on the Chilkat River Fish Wheels under a crew lead (FWT3). The fish wheels are tied to guard rails along the highway on the Chilkat River in Haines. They spin 24/7 during the summer season, and require a lot of maintenance and regular fish checks. All 5 species of pacific salmon are caught in them, and the sampling of each fish is different depending on species. This position is unique in that technicians go home after work every night to their own beds! I've attached a photo of a fish wheel to the email to give an idea of their structure and beautiful setting.
