Thread: Kenai Strategy

  1. #1

    Default Kenai Strategy

    I am making plans to partake in my first non-guided, Non-motorized Monday(Targeting Kings). I am curious what everyones strategy is for Putins, and Takeouts, and what shuttle options are there? I am not asking for directions to your holes, just a little strategy for Putins & Take outs. I appreciate any help that is given.

    I've never done it, but most of the people I 've talked to about it put in at Centennial and take out at the Pillars.

    Most will put in at Centennial and pull out either at Pillars or Eagle Rock. If you're looking for a shorter float, put in at Stewarts Landing and float to Eagle Rock. Pulling out at Pillars might get to be a real pain starting this coming Monday as the dipnet season opens Sunday. There's a lot of powerboats launching and hauling out there on Mondays...maybe not this first Monday, but the next two will be. Pillars can also be a little tricky when the water gets higher as there's a lot more current to deal with and if there's boats in the way, you might have trouble getting in. Eagle Rock charges a bit more, but it's a much easier haul out as you've got a big slow back channel to row into and no current in the launch lagoon.

    If you put in at Centennial, just remember the EO restrictions that are in place right now until you get below the lower Slikok Creek marker.

    Don't know of any shuttle services in the area, except for calling Alaska Cab. You can usually bum a ride from someone at the take out, but you might be waiting a while at times. Although if you're trying to bum a ride, you can sit on anchor fishing around Eagle Rock and wait to see someone heading in.

    Wasn't there a shuttle called Wild Rides? I know they used to help with drift floats on the upper Kenai, maybe they work Soldotna as well, or could at least offer a solution.

    Yeah, Wildmans in Cooper Landing will run run shuttles up there. I've just never heard of a shuttle service working the lower Kenai. Have seen the cabs picking up plenty of folks at Eagle Rock though.

    Hey now thats a good day right there. Fishing and drinking go hand in hand. If youre taking it that seriously you are doing it wrong. The only time fishing should be that serious is if that is your only means of eating.
