We hit Alaska July 18th and spent two weeks having a great time. Fished Resurrection Creek, White Water Rafted Six Mile Creek, drifted the Kenai, Fished Quartz Creek and Peters Creek, flew into and hike the Russian, and had a great time at the Forks Roadhouse.
The weather could of been better, but could have been much worse. The wind cancelled our crossing Skilak Lake and hiking to Skilak Glacier, but everything else went as planned.
The fishing was fantastic, saw Moose, Bear, Eagles, and Seals. Other then one set of stitiches, just some scrapes and bumps, we all returned safely.
My thanks to the membes of this site. Some of you answered questions or gave advice directly, and many of you provided input with your own posts.
Max Finch of Alaskacanoetrips.com in Sterling, not only rented us our rafts and boat, but also provided input as we planned the trip and prepared to fish and was a great asset.
highadventureair.com handled our flight into the Upper Russian for the Second Time. They are great people and also provided a great deal of input as we planned this trip.
Mick and the "River Wolf" went with us on the Kenai Drift to try and prevent us from looking too stupid, none of us drown, and we caught some great fish. Just wanted to clarify, Mick is not a charter, just a fellow outdoorsman that wanted to help us enjoy our trip.
I know you live there and put up with us "Tourists" routinely, but we were treated well everywhere we went. This was the first time to Alaska for the other eight guys and it was a trip they will never forget, it was another trip I will never forget, thank you and I hope you have time to watch the videos.
