[report]Part 2

By the end of April, the plants were beginning to bloom and spring was on the way. Bear Dog was quite fond of chasing beaver.

Two guys came down from the Copper River to learn how we Smolt in Southeast Alaska. They were great guys, and we got to learn them up on the ways of the river and how to catch smolt so they could start tagging them up north.

After work it was time to grab a boat and go fish

Put the Echo Gecko to the test on dollies and cutts

We had a few nasty days of weather, and it sucked putting the fish wheels in place

Had some Stellers Sea Lions swim way up river, probably chasing salmon or eulachon

This river valley provides a natural corridor into the interior of Canada, so there are species of plants, animals etc., that we don't normally have in Southeast Alaska that are present here. One of them is the Ruffed Grouse. Managed to shoot my first ruff while up there, pretty neat little birds. We also got out and bagged several Blue Grouse on the steep mountainsides.

Prime example of a spot to hunt Blues. Steep, so very steep...

Real good man. The sort of life I wish I'd lived if I had it to do all over again.

Keep bringing it.
