your quests on castle

You asked:

"So when you were there, did you even mess with halibut? I feel good about our timing, and think we will have fun with the silvers, but would like to try to catch some halibut. Did you boat in or fly? Thanks for the help. I am told the boat is up the trail? and sometimes folks at the River cabin feel it is "theirs". Did you get that impression? Forest Service says it is first come first GET. I dont think we will be bringing in a kicker though, probably just rowing."

1. I was there ~8/29-9/4/02
2.  Didn't mess with halibut. I heard that halibut are caught in Portage bay, which is near Duncan canal so maybe they eat salmon carcasses or something.  I wouldn't know where specifically to try.

3.  I flew in.
4.   I was at river cabin. Yeah, I kinda assumed that the boat on the river went to the river cabin, and the boat by the flats went with that cabin (that's where it was tied to), but its up to the forest service to decide.  I asked when I borrowed the flats boat cuz there were people there.  I didn't really fish from the boats all that much with 5 people in my group anyway.   There's alot of wadeable water and a place by the "rocks" to cross.  You'll figure it out.

I rented a kicker which turned out useful for the river boat cause there was small amount of current there.  Not very easy to row but not impossible.

Other thing was that boats were really beat up when I went there.  Leaky, broken oarlocks, etc.  Made rowing challenging.
