Fall wonders

What can we say, it’s fall, the colors are quickly changing, it’s beautiful out and the fish, they are treating us well!  Even though we saw quite a bit of rain come in the last week and we were approaching flood levels again, the fishing has continued to be productive all the way through. We saw the upper/upper turn off a little for a day or two but the Refuge and Canyon have been holding tough for us.  There is still a considerable amount of water in the Middle and the Lower but with temps in the low 40’s at night and the termination of the rain we have already seen the peak and we are seeing the water levels dropping quickly.

As per what we hope to see, the Rainbow Trout and Dollie Varden fishing has been amazing.  It’s certainly the time to be out there and we can only hope that it continues if not improves!

Okay, that was just greedy.

Long time client Earl finally earns his big fish!!  Guess patience is a virtue.  Nice work buddy!

The usual bag o’ tricks is working, we are seeing the sockeye and the Kings in their spawn so cater to that. That being said, you find some time on your hands in the quickly lengthening Alaskan evening, might want to put some time into tying up a few extra leaders because you are bound to loose your share out there.

Please feel free to give us a call if you need a water level report.  She’s a powerful river that Kenai and we’ve seen a lot of people in some risky situations this year.  We are happy to give you an update and talk to you about what is happening down here.  Stay safe out there and have a great time!
