The smolt migration is in full swing at Auke Creek, but water level is dropping and temperature is increasing. It will be interesting to how the smolt migration is affected. Dolly Varden and cutthroat counts are among the highest on record for Auke Creek. Daily counts can be found here.

This year's event will be held at Twin Lakes from 6-8 PM. Lots of lessons will be provide by the experts at Juneau Fly Fishing Goods. This will also be a wonderful opportunity to try out Brad's top of the line rods. Food and drink will be provided free by TU. Brad, TU and Raincountry Flyfishers have put a lot of work into organizing this event. In fact, I agreed to arrange the weather this year. Actually we have held this Casting Night every year since 1994 and I can only remember one inclement weather night. The weather report looks good for this year also. I will also give a lesson on some of the techniques I find useful in fishing difficult casting situations on local streams such as Cowee Creek. This event will be the final one for the Raincountry Flyfishers until next year. Chuck Caldwell and I will still be online of course until then. Hope to see you at our event. This should be a good one! Tony Soltys
