Kenai peninsula guided fishing for Trophy Rainbow trout fishing combined with sockeye salmon fishing makes for a fun day. Kenai river king salmon fishing is also available at this time of year. The Sockeye Salmon fishing should pick up again near the end of the first week of July and be good through the second week of Aug. That has been the norm for the last few years. These are hard fighting fish with a built in instinct to trash gear you can plan on some excitement. If you plan to chase these fish on your own make sure that you put a little extra in your gear so the odds of getting them to shore gets a little better.
The Rainbow trout bite has been very good while fly fishing leeches and minnow imitations. I like to fish a down and across drift right now with a sink tip line. The water has been very clear but is now coming up with just a little color. In the bigger water the larger leech patterns show up better and produce the most strikes. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at www.driftingonthefly.com for your next guided kenai river trip.
Thanks and tight lines
