Last year at this time I (this is lead guide Luke Baugh) was guiding eagle watching trips on the Skagit River during Eagle season, and I saw some amazing things. Eagles swooping in over head, perching on limbs, screaming at each other from treetops, and feeding on live and dead salmon. Triad was offering dinner eagle trips and scenic floats at that time, and so we didn't have a chance to get in on the photography trips, but this season will be different.
Bald Eagles from British Columbia are scheduled to arrive on the Skagit in drones come the first of December, and we plan to be there. Our Eagle trips will be formatted almost exactly the same as our typical wine tasting and eco-nature floats; they will depart twice per day from Sutter Creek Public Access, which is located near milepost 100 on Highway 20, that is about half way between Rockport, and Marblemount, WA.
Triad offers the safest trips on the river when it comes to whitewater. We run rivers that scare the competition. When it comes to running eagle trips, why not have guides that have been on the river all year? Join us for a shot at terrific photographs of Bald Eagles on the Skagit River. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on the river.
