    take your limit on the last day, make sure to check the possession limit... Ice in cooler will work fine but be tough to fit in the plane.
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Jeff,

    I purchased one of the new Coleman coolers last spring (it the new style with the small trough in the bottom so that the drain is lower than floor) and found it keeps ice extremely well. I prefer to use the block ice from Fred Meyer. It really lasts a long time.

    Thanks guys, I found a hand pump vac sys., do you think I should layer vac prepared filets with ice or leave in whole blocks? Any ideas about dry ice? Hey Powder I am a novice with the fly rod but I am really stoked to be fly fishing this trip up there. Any advice about equipment, patterns, technique would be really appreciated.
    Thanks Jeff
