My wife and I went on a float on Jan. 9th and really enjoyed it. Saw more eagles than I have ever seen in a day before. Our guide Scott was really good and we will use Skagit River Guide service again.

We had a great trip, but very cold! Interesting ice and snow conditions no one had seen before. Lots of eagles and Cole did a great job getting us down a very shallow river and getting us in position to photograph!
