They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I'll post one more from the Valdez trip before we move on to the high country.

The next few pictures are from the streams that have been part of this fall and of course some of the fish who added their colors to that of the foliage and blue skies to finish the pallet of color before the coming of the white.

New water!

I have not been to some of these places for 7 years and one hadn't been seen since 1989 so this was a good change of scenery and fisheries for me.

In the past week I've had a couple good days and a couple of those days that it just seemed you shouldn't have went fishing. The first one of 'Those days' was last Friday I think. I left in the AM around 9 and took the boat to go searching for trout. They are not plentiful in my favorite river but it seems they only come in one size, large.
