    Season does not open I think until the 10th or 15th of Sept in PWS. Salmon streams will probably have some bears. I have seen them 2,500 feet up by the start of goat season.

    YUP not till the 10th, and the bears by then are getting off the rotten fish and starting on the berries. They still are still down low and roaming around the salmon streams. Good part of that is the ones that I have gotten in the fall dont stink of rotten fish and still make good burger!!

    WE are in a hotel in Tok right now waiting to make the last leg up to Anchorage. I had to give the wife and kids a break. I am probably the only yellow boat rolling up the Alcan...... We are going to try and make a trip out to PWS this week end with the wife and kids, hope to see you guys there.

    PWS cog hill river area or head of main bay.
    If you need a transporter call Ishmay bay lodge for a ride.
    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..
