What a day! My wife and I floated the Upper Kenai and had a wonderful day. It started off with us fishing a hole with a ton of reds in it, but they were all colored up. I was having no luck yet my wife managed to pull out two chrome colored reds hooked square in the mouth.
We moved down river and saw a Brown bear with two cubs. The cubs were pretty fun to watch, as they played around and were oblivious to the world around them.
I have never really fished for trout on this river and thought it was about time I gave it a shot. I through on a tasty looking flesh fly and hocked in the water behind a root wad and swirling eddy. A few casts and drifts later I saw a nice rainbow lunge out of the shadows and nail the flesh fly. What an awesome rush! This is the biggest rainbow that I've ever caught.
My wife and I continued fishing for reds, as we'd like to put a bunch in the freezer and smoker. We ended the day with seven nicely chromed fish. It would have been a spectacular day if I wouldn't have left my net sitting on a gravel bar. LOL!
