    A wise man once said to me in the water but seems mean to post.

    All depends on your targer species and how much your willing to travel.

    It is an even number year so Pinks may be an option however I have seen nor heard nothing about it to date.

    You can go join the party and combat fish with about 10,000 other people on the Russian.


    If your looking to just fish and have a decent time check out Homer for Chicken Charters run you about 120 bucks you go you fish you catch 10-30 lbs Halibut kind of cheesy but still fun and does not cost like a bizzillion bucks.

    Try Coscto Creek, or The Little (New) Sagaya River.

    Both are "can't miss"

    Might be another good push of Reds hitting Klutina next week if you don't mind the longer drive. I had considered this myself but because my daughter is going off to Girl Scout camp after next weekend I changed my mind and will spend the time at home or at least closer to home so we aren't rushed to get her stuff together.

    Other than that The day you get into town check out reports and fish counts coming from the Russian, Lower Kenai and Kasilof. Kenai late run counts start on July 1st. I think those are pretty much the the best options you have.

    The Russian is washed out, water is so high and cloudy that fishing is next to impossible. The entire Kenia area is out of the banks with all the run off.

    And these conditions will persist.

    The water on the Copper is coming down which leads me to believe the Klutina will come down with it. Record numbers of fish in that system this year. That's where I'd go.

    LOL YSR - last year with the late run on the Silvers i.e. not a lot to be had on the in late August / Early Sept on Kenia friends from Cananda ended up using green bait as well to haul in their catch.

    Where is the best place to fish on Klutina? I've never been that way. Is there a campground that has access to good fishing spots?

    In the water! I just can't help my-self! Depends what your fishing for and yes there are campgrounds available:

    http://klutinasalmoncharters.com/

    http://groveklutina.com/Klutina_King...oves/Home.html

    as well as King for a Day!

    You can travel the road towards the Lake and fish or you can walk down towards to mouth of the Copper and fish or you can flip for Reds at the place you stay.

    Enjoy the time!
