Another momma bear looking for easy pickings. Thankfully, we didn't have to catch our dinner: The lodge was built as a family log cabin in 1952. It is rustic but cosy and comfortable. After 10 pm and time to turn in, but still full daylight: The next day dawned bright and clear, perfect for a fly-out trip to Fog Lake to float the upper Copper. Loading the Beaver: Iliamna Lake and Intricate Bay from the air on a rare clear day: Copper River from the air: Landing at Fog Lake (thankfully it didn't live up to its name!): The guides had preceded us, and had the rafts inflated and loaded for the float trip. My fellow fisherman Dan soon had a nice trout on the line. Your humble host posing with a beauty: The Copper River is a dream stream... Mrs. T. enjoyed rowing her own private raft: On the way back down the river, we had more bear sightings: and eagles: To be continued. (The REAL adventures occurred on the last day).
