Back in 1989 I fulfilled a long-time dream by moving to Alaska. I spent eight years in a true fishing and hunting paradise. The fishing was beyond compare, from May through September.
It was in the wintertime that I realized how much I missed Plumas County. Never mind the remoteness, very short daylight hours and really nasty winter weather in Alaska. It was the fishing I missed!
