Virtual Trip - Upper Base Camp - Kanektok River with Dave Duncan and Sons - Alaska

Susan holds my first trout of the trip. Saturday night at 11:00 PM. We stopped fishing because it was almost midnight and we knew we had a big day coming - not because it was dark.


Darrell works the riffle. It is almost midnight and we are fishing. This is truly the land of the midnight sun.

Rankin casts to some structure - he knows where the big 'Bows hang out.

After dinner, Clint suggests we go down to the river and fish a little before bedtime. There is a nice riffle with some reds near the tailout. Susan and I started at the riffle and worked down. She was into Dollies or Arctic Char right away. It took me a little longer to get the hang of it, but after about 10 minutes I couldn't keep them off my line. It took a bit longer to catch a Rainbow, but it was well worth it. It was not the biggest of the trip, but it sure was pretty and it was nice to get that first one.

This trout took a white egg sucking leach. One of the few I caught on something other than a mouse. Once I learned the ins and outs of mousing - that is all I wanted to do.
