Just back from the trip and will try to post a complete report later.  First, this is incredible country and the trip we left Petersburg after fishing Petersburg creek one day and went up to Houghton about a three hour cruise, fished there the next day, then a couple hours north to Wyndam Bay to the Chuck River, then over to Kake Creek for a couple of days and then to Salmon River before reaching our destination of Wrangell.

Fishing was ok but the rivers are low just as they are in Montana due to lack of snowfall.  Steelehead were caught but one had too work for them and we hiked for miles and miles.

Food incredible as always with fresh dungeness crabs, white spot shrimp, fresh halibut etc.

Scenery off the chart.

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!



Excellent stuff!.......... 0--0
