It has been a wet one!!!

Many rivers and creeks are at 'action stages' swollen... a few running very near flood stages.

Be careful out there rafting, kayaking, and canoeing.

Flying and landing in this stuff isn't all that easy - so be advised.

I can say that right now I have 23 Rafts out on various rivers throughout Alaska and am receiving reports over our SAT Phones each evening on progress, GPS whereabouts, conditions, group spirits, etc.

While we are getting everyone out or back in and all outfitted gear is working out very well... many parties are getting downstream faster than typical pace, sportfishing is alright for Silvers (but not for a whole lot else on flooding rivers), wood is floating down the more blown out drainages (THINK WHOLE TREES).

Couple things keep coming up as a theme:

1.) Making sure of food and water... calories with hydration to keep ya warm and focused

2.) Take the best care of gear so that it can take care of you.

3.) Starting to get darker at night... camp management is a big one, as well as boats tied off.

4.) Don't skimp on good shelter and Rain-gear!!! If you arrive for you float with less than suitable - expect failure and discomforts from saturation.

These are reports from several drainage for float trips on both sides of the Alaska Range.

Be safe out there!
