FALL STEEL HEAD FISHING

Drifting on the Fly ALASKA AND KENAI RIVER RAINBOW TROUT FISIHING Leave a Comment

fall steel head fishing is in full swing right now.

I don’t know if it is good or bad… The river level that is. On one hand I cannot get to my favorite “winter fishing” areas because I can’t wade across the river. On the other hand these levels make the river very easy to float the Kenai River.

The Kenai River continues to flow at a July level. An ice dam breaking started the abundant flow of water and recent rain/ snow has kept the levels up. As I write this it is 23 degrees but yesterday the high was 45 degrees – balmy! The snow from last week has almost all melted in the flats though, the mountains are fully covered. The middle river (Kenai) is still fishing well with flesh and eggs. Steel head fishing has been hit or miss but my most productive runs have been producing fish every day.. The Steel head runs seem to be sporadic this year than like other years and the streams on the lower peninsula are dirty from the rainfall.  This is probably why the fishing seems to be sporadic?

Give us a call to book a fishing trip on the kenai river or surrounding waters or to get a report on what I have been experiencing.
