Fall PNW backcountry walk ‘n wade – Exploring new water

DRYFT S14 fishing waders

Fall fishing in the PNW backcountry has a lot to offer.

Getting remote and exploring streams and rivers in the mountain regions can pay off big. Recently Nick and Sam went out on a quick overnight mission to explore some new water.

Upon arriving to the area we’d be exploring we were greeted by multiple signs warning of an aggressive bear ransacking occupied campsites. “Camping not advised’ warned one of the signs. Good thing we forgot the bear spray at home.

Well in the end we survived the night without a bear attack. 🙂

Fishing turned out to be tough, but the scenery sure was easy on the eyes. This was a perfect way to step back and get grounded before the busy fall season picks up. Here are some photos from the trip.

Horror on the Kenai

Recently we heard rumors of some half man half wolf beast terrorizing fish with a fly rod up on the Kenai. We investigated and this is what we found…

 

Oh, the horror.

Bunnies and bullies

When fall first hits, before the big rains, the rivers drop low and salmon move their way into the upper reaches. Bull trout follow, and so do we.

 

While getting ready to do the real business of the season, they certainly aren’t past cozying up behind spawning salmon and smacking a big bunny fly or egg sucking leech.

Alaska Grayling short [video]

Some Alaska grayling action from last fall.  Grayling may be small, but they sure are fun.
