Today I got off work, removed my studded tires and got my all terrains back on the truck. After I got my chores done I found time to go and explore a stream here in Anchorage. Ship Creek is a well known Salmon run river that holds a few Rainbow trout too. I didn’t spend much time fishing it but it did produce a couple of small rainbows. I was using a Murray hellgrammite size 10, dead drifting it. That fly seems to produce more fish for me than any other in my fly box! I don’t know if it is confidence or what.. but I tend to tie this fly own my line more times than not when I approach new water. I have never fished salmon in this stream but I understand that it can produce quit a few fish during the peak of the seasons as well.
I’m moving back down to the Kenai peninsula next week to get gear ready for the upcoming season. Dates are booking up fast so if your interested in a 2008 Drift Boat Fishing guide trip on the kenai river, reserve your spots soon. We hope everyone is enjoying the spring and we look forward to fishing with you.
