The host and crew of Trout Unlimited’s “On the Rise” TV show made a soggy, rain-soaked visit to the Juneau, AK area last fall to shoot footage of the natural beauty and excellent fishing opportunities that abound in the Tongass National Forest. “On the Rise” is kicking off a new season of shows, and the first of what is now two half-hour episodes focusing on the Tongass is airing this week at 2:30am (AK time) Thursday March 29, 12:30pm Friday March 30, and 10am Saturday March 31 on the Sportsman Channel (go to www.thesportsmanchannel.com for details on providers). Below is a trailer from this episode. Part 2 of “Jed’s Alaskan Adventure” should be airing in the 2nd half of April, so stay tuned!
