Halibut Fishing In Valdez

Last Saturday a group of my co-workers and I went to Valdez for some Halibut fishing.  More awesome weather!

First week in June

I took a day off from work to take advantage of some perfect weather which was causing rapid melting, thus the rivers were high.  The local commercial rafting outfit closed for the high water.  We took advantage of it.  Beautiful float on the Matanuska R.  Parts were still lined with ice.  That wkd we joined friends in car camping at the Russian River Camp Ground to Mtn bike part of the Russian Lakes Trail.  Bone dry riding.  Pre-summer vegetation-perfect riding conditions!  Ben had a blast playing with 4 other boys.

As soon as the lakes started to thaw Ben discovered throwing rocks into them.  He has also started to enjoy slides!
