Thread: Egg Drops on the Upper Kenai... Your Opinions?

    Default Egg Drops on the Upper Kenai... Your Opinions?

    When do you usually think the egg drop starts on the Upper Kenai when the trout fishing "really" starts? I know I usually start fishing hard the first week of September but I know the egg drop is in full swing by then. What do you consider the "start"?

    Seams a little late to me this year. I want to say the Glut was the 3rd-Last week of Aug last year. It was hot to trot before that and Sept got hot like the 2nd-3rd week again. I didnt take notes but I think I am pretty close.

    As usual some opinions are more useful than others... Anyone check the alignment of the moon and stars? I hope the Mars landing didn't throw things off for this year...

    Got back from fishing the upper river this Monday evening. The water is still running a little dirty and the water level is back to normal for this time of the year. Fished 6mm and 8mm beads on my W.P. Hexagraph and mostly landed smaller fish. Watched other fishermen on the river and the action was not hot and furious, but steady. Decided to change things up and went to using my 11' switch rod with large articulated flesh flies and started to hook into fish that gave my fly rod a good bend. This year, I think in about another week the bead action should pick up. Hope this helps. Tight lines.

    I believe there to be three separate "egg drops" on the upper river.
    First seems to be mid august.
    Second is late august to late sept
    Third appears to go into January

    The second appears to be the egg drop most target, due to large numbers of fish, everywhere....Happy Egg Drop Everyone!
