Valdez Alaska Fishing Trip

I always love the trip down to Valdez even though it takes several hours to get there. From my house in Fairbanks to Valdez town is about 362 miles away. I have lived in Valdez two different times and I love it!

Last year on our fishing trip to Valdez Alaska, we had a great time, the weather was nice, and the sun was out. However, it was more like a family trip down to Valdez because we came home with no fish.  The only fish I caught, the bear took it (Bear in Our Campsite) It's all good though since we already have some fish from our previous fishing trips.

Winds picked up and water became choppy.

Shoup Bay and Glacier

Shoup Glacier a fraction of it's former size

In Shoup Bay, this place used to have a lot of ice floating around

Crooked Creek - a home for pink and chum salmon. From a long journey to the sea and back, these fish have managed to come back alive but just to die in this clear water of crooked creek.
