    Default all these reds

    Just a thought, but did any of us trout guys wonder what this will do to the trout fishing this fall? I have no idea if it will make it better or worse?????????? What do you think?

    The only thing unusual at this point is the large numbers at one time. Per counts last year they stopped at just under a million sockeye, so at this point fall fishing should be normal. If the total sockeye number is over last year that could have an impact I would think. Just my .02

    good point, I guess more or less I jumped the gun by assuming that since they are coming in all at once that maybe there was a lot more on the way and the run timing might be a little early which it really isn't. So maybe it wont affect it at all.

    Think of what happens on a Pink year when there is tons of salmon in the water. Big trout feeding everywhere. I wouldn't worry to much. More eggs and flesh in the water. The only thing I could see, is the trout may get stuffed so it may be spotty fishing. Good a week slow a week. I have seen this on the middle on a pink year. The fish are just stuffed and turn off.

    The only thing i could see happening is having so much food in the water our flies/beads will get lost in the mayhem!

    Im more worried about the water lever and how clear it is than how many reds make it at this point

    A huge sockeye return could push the bite back a few weeks, but the food will eventually start to decrease and the trout will be even more healthy!!!!!!

    Kenai River troup/dolly fishing will be better. It alway gets better in late summer and especially fall. And......it can not get any more than the current trrible lack of fish on the upper Kenai right now!

    To clarify my statement, a good impact.
