August 31 – Fly-casting Workshop
**Registration is now closed. We’ll see you on the water!**
Join the Southeast Alaska Land Trust and the Tongass Chapter of Trout Unlimited for a fly-casting workshop for beginner to intermediate fly-casters. A guide from the Tongass Chapter of Trout Unlimited will lead the workshop. Come learn how to fly-cast (or learn how to perfect your cast) while fishing for coho salmon in Gastineau Channel!
When: August 31st from 9:00am – 11:00am
Where: The workshop will take place at the Southeast Alaska Land Trust’s Marjory & Edgar Huizer Fishing Access Site located 2.7 miles from the bridge on North Douglas Highway (just a few houses past the ski fence on the water side).

The Southeast Alaska Land Trust acquired the Marjory and Edgar Huizer site in 2015 with the purpose of providing recreational and fishing access to the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge and Gastineau Channel. Read more at this link.
