    Does anyone know if the author of "Kenai Canoe Trails" can be contacted through this site? I thought I remembered seeing a post about lakes he suggested to fish on the Kenai on this site. I have searched, but have not found the post I wanted.

    I am planning some ice fishing over xmas break and am looking for some reliable intel.

    Thanks

    Its a long walk and since this area is closed to snowmachines its foot, ski, or snowshoe only but when I was up at Gene and Pepper Lakes this summer the fish sounded like Ka-Thunk ! when they were jumping and feeding on skeeters. Versus splish-splash on the other lakes I was on. It took me a day to pack back in so it would be an overnight trip.

    Thanks AW. Gene Lake area is pretty nice but you have to work to get there. Nobody was there when I went through had the whole lake to myself.

    I find it interesting Kenai Peninsula legends such as Peter Kalifornsky trapped Gene Lake area (pre-1940).

    "Now living permanently in Kenai, Kalifornsky combined itinerant wage-work with subsistence hunting and fishing. In the wintertime he worked a trapline at Gene Lake in the Swanson River area that had previously been worked by his father."

    I'm gonna guess that back in the day they either mushed or snowshoed up the Swanson River to get back there.
