Thanks for the info hugh (i'll probably be placing a fly order pretty soon). Justin and I were thinking of making a trip up there, just trying to figure out if it's worth the effort right now. It appears to be a pretty good haul, but you know that the prospect of great fishing throws all notions of common sense out the window for me. We're planning on doing 8 backcountry trips this year, i'll keep you up to date on how things go.
By the way, if anyone would rather not discuss this in public, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
