O'Brien Creek Chitina/Copper River

Here's my recent trip to Chitina for fishing but ended up not fishing because the water was high and nobody was catching anything. Here are few pictures of famous O'Brien creek.

Alan caught his first fish


Alan
Beautiful Sunset at 1015pm while fishing in Quartz lake.

Alan
Alan was reeling in his first catch

Alan
That big smile says it all, his first catch ever. He was the first one who caught a fish. As soon as he has his line down the water, he caught a fish right away.

Camping in Quartz Lake

Friday evening after work on July 20th, my family and I drove down to Quartz Lake in Big Delta. It's about 86 miles from Fairbanks.
We left Fairbanks 9:15pm and arrived in Quartz lake 10:44pm


Quartz lake
Campground was full except for overnight camping parking area which is fine with me at least I'm closer to the water and got a good view of the lake.

Came home to a cool yard

Driving home from camping/fishing trip on a hot sunny Sunday at Richardson hwy, it was great to get home with this cool yard. Indeed the trees I planted helped cool the yard. The temp in the interior got into 90s -- hot!

In Kenai River on Friday the 13th

Went to The mouth of Kenai river for depnitting on Friday the 13th and only caught 3 reds salmon. Fish was slow, only few people caught some fish.
 Yep here are the 3 fish I caught on Friday the 13th at Kenai River

Free hotdogs and bouncy house sponsored by some church ministry in Kenai and people from lower 48. Too bad I didn't remember the name of church organization.

Hot choco in rainy cold day was great especially free!
