    Default float-accessible fly-fishing in SE alaska?

    I've got a week off at the end of August, and my Cessna 180c (on EDO 2960s) is ready to stretch her legs.

    Will be leaving from Victoria, B.C., and heading for Prince Rupert and beyond. Would love some advice on where I could set up camp for a night or two and get in some fly-fishing (preferably on a stream somewhere). Fish size not important, but a good place to tail up and go for a walk is. Any suggestions? I have about 10 days for the whole trip.

    Also, any advice for a Canadian crossing the border? I was assuming it would be Skagway?

    Default Heckman Lake/Naha River


    A few miles north of Ketchikan, on Revillagegedo Island is Heckman Lake. That would be a great place to land and there is a forest service cabin available to rent. I've done well up the inlet creek but the best place is the outlet which is the Naha River. It winds a few miles down to salt water. A very nice trout stream. You'll also be finding salmon in the river this time of year.
