One of the prettiest rivers in the Pacific Northwest is seldom fished. The O'Keefe clan, including our 82 year old mother, hiked into North Cascades National Park, to a very remote area. After 22 miles in one day, we arrived at the Stehikin River. Most people take the Lady of the Lake passenger boat from the town of Chelan to Stehekin. We chose to hike/horsepack into the upper tribs and eventually to Stehekin Valley Ranch for cabins and chow. The scenery is spectacular and there are some small, medium, large and a few extra large rainbows and cutthroat trout. Big attractors got the action. We did a half day float with resident guide, John Wilsey, that was really fun. Check out these shots.
