OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly It's Tuesday, still four days away from the weekend, but my mind is still focused on Saturday. Surfing through the Internet, I check out the Spey Pages and begin browsing their Classifieds while enjoying my morning cup of Joe. Nothing catches my attention, so I continue to surf only this time I stop at a site to note the local weather. The marine weather forecast for the Northern Chatham Strait area reads, "Rain, heavy at times through Saturday." Not the most promising forecast for the weekend let alone a day of fly-fishing, but it's a typical forecast common in late-October for Southeast Alaska. Still, there was a slight feeling of anxiety and a bit of panic building within me. I knew my angling days, for this season anyways, were numbered and gradually coming to a close.

On the Fly: Blown out rivers

Fall cutthroat trout, like this beautifully speckled sea-run, can be found in many of our Southeast Alaska lakes and salt chucks and can offer fly-fishers excellent angling opportunities when many local rivers are blown out due to heavy rains.
