    Concern for Member Safety
    Along Flooding Kenai River

    Dear AFF Member,

    Due to impending flood of the Kenai River, the 2011 Clean Up has been postponed.
    It will be re-scheduled for Spring 2012.

    This is the first September in nearly 20 years AFF members won't be removing a season's worth of trash from the river and highway.

    According to the National Weather Service, "Recent heavy rains across the Kenai Peninsula have caused a significant rise in the headwaters of the Kenai River. The Kenai River at Cooper Landing was at 12.7 ft at 3 pm Wednesday and is expected to rise above the minor flood stage of 13.0 ft around 10 pm Wednesday evening. It is expected to crest near a stage of 14.0 ft on Friday afternoon."

    Great..I bet they will find much more garbage in the spring anyway, when the water is down compared to normal fall levels. Been wondering why not do it in the spring for some time now..I suggest last weekend in April.

    always thought it should be in the spring... except the fishing is no good
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
