I'm headed back to Anchorage this year , I know we will end up at the russian at some point , fishing are way down from the willow . Last time there I talked to some guys putting in at a launch near the ferry parking lot at the russian . Seemed very busy with float boats etc. The guys I talked to were fishing for rainbows mainly with beads and I wondered if on this trip I should try and get set up to fish the Kenai one day for bows on a float . We will be there about the third week in August , to miss the red craze and crowds . Can anyone tell me how the fishing for bows would be this time of year and if it would be worth the money to hook up with a guide for the day .It would be great to get away from the kenia flip for a day and try some real fly fishing on the Kenai .
