Fall fishing!

The crowds have wained, it was hard to believe it was Saturday at Sportsman’s Boat Launch today.  The Salmon madness has come to an abrupt stop, the weather has been kind, and it’s an all around nice time to be on the water.

We’ve been seeing some great dry fly hatches going on as well as the usual flesh and beads have been working their magic for fly fishing for both Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden.  The small creeks are a great alternative for some wade fishing as well.  Out on the big river it is quickly becoming everyones favorite time of year to be out fishing for the Trout and Dollies and right now on the Upper Kenai there are also a sprinkle of Silver Salmon starting to show in the eddies. If this is your main target it sounds like below Skilak as well as going out on the salt out of Seward is the way to go.

It’s fall, it’s time to sit back and relax and take your time out there.  Happy fishing!
