Glory days!

What can we say, it’s that time!  Trout fishing is game on, the weather is finally giving us a break and we are seeing Silvers in the Upper as well.  This is what we have all been waiting for, the glory days of fall.  We are all busy out on the river and loving every minute of it!

Great day at the office.

Rainbow Trout Anyone?

Though you may be able to go out and swing for a few remaining Sockeye Salmon, we have primarily seen the first run come through and now come to an end.  This places us back onto the river turning our focus back once again to fly fishing for Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden.  We have been out there the last few days fishing for these species and though not like it can be in the fall, we’ve still had some beautiful days on the water catching and releasing some beauties!

With the Sockeye run having been in the waters and many down here catching and filleting ron the river recently we are having success picking up those Rainbows and Dollies on some nice juicy flesh flies.  It’s a time fun time to get back out there and start feeling out where these fish are again after the Kenai River had it’s 50 year flood last fall and our focus being mainly on Sockeye for the past few weeks.

Current water levels on the Kenai are sitting at 13″
