Fishing in Tongass National Forest T ongass National Forest, located in southeastern Alaska, holds the title as the largest national forest in the U.S. It is home to 16.8 million acres—58 percent covered by trees—and prides itself on the uniqueness of having no threatened or endangered species. The forest's abundance of water provides one of the best cold water fishing spots in the world. In August 2013, Donald Higginbotham, along with his brother and son-in-law, made the trek to Yakutat, Alaska, for a nine-day fishing expedition, including access to a cabin in the middle of Tongass National Forest. For Higginbotham, this was a dream come true. Accessible only by bush plane, the nearby Italio River is home to many species of salmon, specifically pinks and silvers—250 pounds of which Higginbotham and his family brought home. Although not his first visit to Tongass National Forest, Higginbotham considers it his most enjoyable thus far. It was the "best fishing trip we've ever had," he says. "Our son-in-law came with us, and it made it interesting. It was his first time." Higginbotham, who retired from Davey as a production manager in December 2001, still checks in to his former Houston office a few times a year to make sure everyone is doing well. Higginbotham enjoys reading the MyDavey Bulletin and takes particular pride in seeing his home office featured. As he says, "I like to keep up with what's going on with Davey."
