Mike Eaton sends us this report and photos from a recent trip to Alaska. Thanks Mike looks like a blast.
I saw the post about Peter’s trip up to AK and thought that I might send you a couple of pics from my trip in early August. Six of us took an unguided unsupported back country float for 7 days on the Alagnak River in Katmai National Park. Our run timing was a little off or a little on depending on how you look at it. We weren’t able to target a single species of salmon since we were in between runs, but there were a few of all 5 species in the river so we had a chance to catch all 5. We also battled relentless mosquitoes; due to the high water we weren’t camping on gravel instead we were stuck camping on grassy banks where the mosquitoes seemed to be just waiting for us. We saw bears, foxes and eagles and had an incredible trip. I hope you enjoy the photos.
