During summer 2017, John Citta spent two weeks floating the Tikchik River, from Nishlik Lake to Tikchik Lake. They timed their trip to hit the sockeye run, and it proved a record one. They spent plenty of time fishing and hiking, and they saw lots of fish, bears, and birds. In addition to sharing his photos and experiences from this trip, John will describe some of the area’s natural history. He will also discuss the ins and outs of trip planning and logistics.
