Here's Day 1 of 8 from our recent Kobuk/Noatak adventure for sheefish and char...packrafting trip.
Flew out of Kotz with Jared Cummings of Golden Eagle Outfitters. Great pilot, awesome service.
The weather was dismal starting off, so Jared dropped us off on the Kobuk for sheefish until the weather improved in the Noatak drainage.
If you haven't targeted sheefish, you might put it on your bucket list, because those girls can fight big. Most fish were in the 20-22-lb range, with numerous fish over 30-lbs!
Day 1 we used only one PR-49 to gain access to the sheefish...3 guys and fishing gear in one packraft. Check it out:
