Aug 21, 2009 - Wood River again

Rufus, Marshal, Will and Bill left this morning after a omelet to order. Mike, Georgine, Ed and I are the only guests in camp. Did I mention that Mike and Georgine were from TX and were Cory’s parents? Georgine caught the largest Silver of the week, must have been luck. Ed and I fished with Jon on the wood river, again. Hard to believe but we caught our limit of Silver Salmon in 15 minutes. I have a signed letter from Jon if you do not believe me. They also fished the Wood today, and although we showed them where we caught our limit they...

Aug 19, 2009 - Ice Creek Hike

What’s for breakfast, Eggs, ham and hash browns, and we will need the energy. Marshal and I are the only two to choose the Ice Creek Hike today. Rod rates the hike a 2.5 difficulty on a scale of 3, too bad Cousin Milton is not here to accompany us, I own him. The hike consists of a 4 mile hike from the other side of the lake over tundra, which I describe as moss floating on water, and a two mile wading trip, fishing the creek. Rod gave us a ride across the lake and picked us up. I was not concerned until Brad brought the shotgun and a...

Aug 18, 2009 - Aguloqak River

We were up at 6:30, coffee was already made, such a change from last week. For Breakfast we had pancakes with fresh blueberries, picked by hand. Our guide for the day was Brad, ok not from TX. We headed up the lake to the Agulowak River to fish for Rainbow trout and Dolly Varden. We caught fish all day, and I mean giant fish, or perhaps big fish, ok, good fish, but 20 inch Rainbow are good fish. Dinner consisted of appetizer, grilled chicken, soup, and chocolate pie. Although it was not dark, it was time for bed. Oh wait, the cookie jar...

Aug 17, 2009 - Wood River

I arrived yesterday in Dillingham at 11:15 and was greeted by Guide Cory, from TX. We waited for another flight to pick up Rufus Burleson (Burleson is named after his Great Grandfather, he attended Texas Tech and is from TX) and Marshal (also from TX). We traveled by Van to Lake Aleknagik. We were met by Rob the owner of the lodge, from Waco TX., taking us to the lodge in a large jet boat. The location was gorgeous with beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Upon arrival, I noticed my favorite item in the lodge, a very large cookie jar,...

Aug 16, 2009 - Alaska Bearclaw Loge

Today I fly to Dillingham AK from Anchorage for a week of fly fishing at the Alaska Bearclaw Lodge. I will return to Anchorage on the 21st. Although I will have my laptop, I do not expect to have access to an internet connection. This is a remote lodge, no TV/VCR, a rough experience for some. Below is the link to the lodge web site if you want to see pictures, etc. Until Aug 21st, have a great week and a blessed day. Harold (sans QC) www.bearclawlodge.com
