We have been to the Yukon several times but Alaska was new.

My wife Leslie, hurt her back on an ATV ride in to a remote lake so that stopped fishing for about a week.

We only fished together 2 days of the nine days in the Yukon. She insisted I do an overnighter alone so I got an extra two days in. Climate change is messing things up...they only had four inches of snow all winter and most of that was in April. One lake was so low that most of the pike habitat was dry land. The water level was down about 5 feet. Drought is a new problem up there.

Best part of the trip fishing wise was casting for lakers in 10 ft of water. They were basically all the same size but we had three solid hours of catching.

Really you don't go to the Yukon to catch the biggest fish although there are some big ones there, you go for the setting. You are just smiling casting into this water.

Those pics are not touched up...the colour is best on cloudy days.

It wasn't a total loss for her. We did 3 days together, then she sent me out on an overnighter but she went to a weekend Native festival which she thoroughly enjoyed. Then it was off to Alaska which she loved and the back was okay by then. :)

Just unbelievably beautiful. Thanks for sharing and making me jealous. I saved some pics and intend on painting a few. If Joey were still with us I know she would agree and would love to paint them as well.

Just incredible images mon chum!  Hard to argue that the Yukon isn't the most beautiful place to fish.

Where to next?  I thought you were coming to Ottawa at some point too?
