Great question. I have two aspirations for this year.

Utah- Provo in mid to late march

Alaska- Alganak in late July

Saving my money up now....

Hi Dave,

You will like the Alganak. Are you going with a lodge or are you going to float it?

Frank

Frank I am planning on going to the Alganak lodge. May be beyond my means but I am scrambling to try and make it happen.

I'll fish the usual haunts:
North Platte
Colorado River
Roaring Fork/Frying Pan
San Juan
Delaney Lakes
Green River below Flaming Gorge and below Fontenelle

New this year:
Rock Creek
Big Horn
Gunnison
maybe get down to the Conejos
Hopefully get in some night fishing, meant to last year but time slipped away before I got out
If I have time left over then I want to try some carp fishing

We spent most of our time re-landscaping our yard last year from the end of March until just before the snow started to fall, so this year is dedicated to being back on the water as much as we can.

We have a few places to get re-aquainted with.....
1. A few overnighter's on the Southfork of the Snake. Anyone else interested?
2. The upper Green with Davo and Larry.
3. Trying out some new waters around Lebarge Wyoming.
4. Night fishing with Larry.
5. Hoppers and streamers on the Maddy.
6. In general just checking out southwestern Wyoming a little more.
7. Flay's on the Henry's Fork. (always a fun hatch)
8. Last but certainly not least, fishing for Steelhead on the Salmon River in Idaho during March, april and October.

Do you really think they will want to fish with a guy wearing white shirts and shorts and waving his rod about

Yea probably. They've done it before.
Davo usually has shorts on too, and his legs are not nearly as sexy as mine.
