Day Float on the Matanuska River on Oct 11

Last Thursday my co-worker Ron and I took a day off from work to take advantage of a sunny autumn day.  Dont think the temp ever got above 40 F.  We were fine as we were adequately dressed and the constant rowing kept us warm.  We put in at Hicks Creek and too off 6 hrs later at King Creek.

Port Heiden Tour of duty Part 1

For the last 3 weeks of September I was working in Port Heiden for the 3 rd yr in a row.  I went prepared for silver fishing and prepared to bring some home.  Unfortunately I had a lot of bad weather:hard winds and rain.
