My sister called me up and told that one of the other pilots for the airline she's flying for had a medical emergency so she would have to be north of the brooks range for three months. She asked if I could go up to her place in Anchorage and help her out with a a few things and bring her 15 year old Jack Russell terrier back to stay with me for a couple months. It was silver season so she asked at the right time. She also bought my ticket and put me up in first class so that helped.

I had enough time to make a mess of the bench and tie a few flies before leaving.

I called a few people, made plans, and a week and a half after she called I was here at 2am.

I got a cab to her house, slept a few hours, loaded everything into her car and hit the road. Driving this little thing was about the biggest ass pucker I've had in a long time. A car that size is a moose lazy boy waiting to happen and I drove 600 miles of the moosest roads on earth.

I met up with an old friend that now lives in Kenai and hit the river. Fishing wasn't too bad with me getting a nice silver on the first day and both of us catching a ton of sockeyes.

We hiked upstream a ways past where the river is closed to fishing to check out fish swimming/ jumping up a series of waterfalls. Along the way the river was dotted with pools choked full of fish taking a break between rapids.

I headed down the road to fish the stream that I grew up grew up on. Coming into town I noticed how everything was run down more than I ever remembered and then saw the old tackle shop that I used to buy candy bars at when my brother and my friends and I would ride our bikes down to the river as kids to fish.

We missed the main push of silvers on the first afternoon so fishing wasn't the greatest. We were catching mostly pinks with my buddy getting a nice silver. He went back up to Kenai having to be at work in the morning and I had a downed a homer to meet up with an old friend stopping at the salt water solution on the way to harass some more humpy's.

He met out at the slough and fished a bit before we made it back to his place at dusk to drink some beers and whiskey and catch up.

Then up the next and last day to fish by myself on the home waters.

I got an early steelhead but couldn't get a pick on my own. I had to ask a favor of a guy fishing a ways below me to take a pic of this one for me.

With everything loaded in the car I headed back up to Anchorage, took a quick shower, repacked my bag, called a cab, rounded up the dog and headed to the airport.

I've been trained by FW.  Truth be told, the best time slot to fish for smallies is 4-5:30 pm.  it's hardly worth the effort to plan an elaborate trip & shuttle at some far flung destination when one can top off a day with an evening quickie, and not squander one's capital. 

Dave, it is rather unbecoming for a man of your age to be referring to someone as a white trash skank in juvi slang. Perhaps you should start fraternizing with a different peer group;)

Nice time management.

He can work shit in like a boss. I need to work on that. You can get so much more done if you can manage time effectively. Many times when fishing is involved, if I don't have a lot of time then I don't try and get it in. Need to utilize time better in the future. Thanks for bringing that up, Doug.

That's a hell of a stretch for smallies. I need to get back in there again.

Another stretch we need to cover for smallies upstream of that is on my list. Remind me to mention it if I haven't already. Some good ones have been pulled out of this place that I speak of this year. I haven't been to it in many moons.

Clawdad rocks. Told ya they were the shizzle. Smallmouth can help but kill 'em. I've got a BUNCH stocked up, so if you run low just hit me up. They're always in my truck, and you're welcome to them.
