THERE CAN BE SOME VERY GOOD KENAI RIVER DRY FLY FISHING.
June is a great month to be in the middle of some great caddis hatches in Alaska. Smaller rivers and lakes on the Kenai peninsula have been the most productive when I am look for Rainbow trout on dry flies. Also look at the side channels of the Kenai river, there are some great place to find some rainbow trout eager to take a dry fly. Once the salmon show up in good numbers you can fish a dry fly all day long and never have a trout look up. When you do find fish looking up make sure you have a few caddis patterns to fall back on.
I’m a huge fan of peacock hurl, I mix it into most of my favorite patterns.
Brown or olive caddis patterns in a size 12 is a go to for us in June.
Have a great time tying and we’ll catch you next time,
give us a call to book your next Alaska Kenai river guide trip and if the timing is right we will dry fly fish the Kenai river for rainbow trout!
