     Return to Alaska

    Fish Stories  Darylc writes "Our first expedition into the Alaskan wilderness in 1998 was a bona fide adventure. Our party of six spent a week rafting one of the wildest rivers in the huge expanse known as Katmai National Park. American Creek, or as it is known by some ? ?Grizzly Creek,? is more of a raging torrent than anything we in the lower forty-eight might call a creek. The pseudonym ?Grizzly Creek? is also perhaps a better description for this 40-mile trip that includes class four rapids and one of the largest brown bear populations in the world. Shortly before our arrival that summer a former Alabama State Senator lost his life to the raging power of this ?creek?. "

     When The Saugeen River in Ontario is Blown Out

    Fish Stories  release writes "The trip started out with all conditions being right. The sky suddenly turned that winter cold black with broken clouds, then without a change the skies opened up with rain.

     Au Sable River South Branch - The Mason Tract

    Fish Stories  

    The South Branch of the Au Sable River in Michigan, is one of the finest trout streams in the country. Mired in rich fly fishing lore and history, anglers are taken back in time, following this meandering river through a pristine wilderness as it flows from its headwaters towards the mainstream of the Au Sable.

    From Chase Bridge in Roscommon to above Smith Bridge there is a special place in the annals of fly fishing. The Mason Tract. A section of undeveloped land that was conveyed to the State of Michigan in 1955 by the late George W. Mason in a perpetual trust to insure it remains undeveloped. It includes 1500 acres bordering the stream and an additional 1330 acres acquired from the U.S. Forest Service in 1957 that extended it's borders. This special tract is also known as the Mason Retreat.

     Golden Trout at Montana?s Lightning Lake

    Fish Stories  stevekunnath writes "

    When I lived in Montana I would make a yearly trip to Lightning Lake. Located deep in the mountains of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness of southwestern Montana, this area is one of the last huge tracts of wilderness left in the lower 48. There are thousands of mountain lakes in this section of Montana, but what makes Lightning Lake special, is its large, wild, golden trout.

     Lost and Found Carp

    Fish Stories  CoreyModich writes "A year ago my father and I went on a fishing trip to Lakeville Lake (it has master angler size carp, rock bass, and crappie). My mother had brought a little kid she was baby-sitting named Tommy. My father had put his ($200) fly rod on the dock to put a worm on my mothers line."
