Thread: Reds still going up the russian?

  1. #1

    Default Reds still going up the russian?

    My brother is visiting again from Australia and would really like to fish the russian.
    I told him its just bad timing with the runs but he wants to go anyways. He misses it even though he's only fished it a few times in 2008.
    Anyways, just curious to know if there are still fish going through or is it really dead this time of year?

    thanks

    Was there this past saturday and there was still some fish to be had, mid day at that. Will probably have to work for them though. I'd suggest starting at grayling or pink and hiking upstream towards the falls. Look for holding fish. Probably won't find a lot, pods of 5-10 holding in some areas. The slide hole had about 50 fish holding in it. With the sanctuary opening in a few days I'd expect the rest of those fish to push up once the boots hit the water. Might be slim pickins after that until the second run arrives. Don't forget the trout rods, there's some bruisers in there.
