We told our guide Luke that we wanted to bring home dinner. In Sept the trout and dolly varden were plentiful, but edible salmon are much harder to hook. Luke made it a mission to find us silver salmon and we landed a huge one!

We did the full day tour. It was a nice raft trip down the river. The guide was great. We didn't see much wildlife other than eagles. At the end there is a long hike out which is infested with mosquitos. Not the right deal....More

We have 6 adults and a petite 18 month old. Is the half day trip something a 18 month old could go on? Or would it be better to split up groups?
