I've lived on the Kenai Peninsula for 3 years now and have really been wanting to get into flyfishing for rainbows on the Kenai River. I don't have a boat so I am looking for good places that I can drive to and get and hike the river bank and have some success. I just purchased a new 9', 8wt rod (I checked several places and they all recommended either 7wt or 8wt for the Kenai in case you happen to hit a mosnter rainbow or a sockeye or silver). Anyone with good info on where a beginer can go practice and get some decent fish without alot of pressure from other more experienced fisherman. Also, FYI, Im not new to fishing, just fishing for rainbows on the Kenai. I dont know much about Strike Indicators and some of the other more technical aspects related to fly fishing here but I do have quite a bit of experience flossing for sockeyes and have the basic flip technique down. Otherwise, any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
