Anybody know if reds swap sides of the river regularly while swimming up the Kenai. I know it doesn't really matter, but figured somebody may want to discuss while there isn't much fishing to be done.
I started thinking about it last year when I fished several spots on each bank on the lower river and it seemed like no matter where I was there was a lot more fish being hooked on one bank of the river than the other. All except for one spot seemed like the south bank produced better. Probably just due to the details of each spot like bank slope, speed of flow, etc I guess. The better bank seemed like the one with the more gentle slope which I guess makes sense since that is where the slower water would be. Anyway it got me thinking if most fish stick to one bank or if they swap back and forth all the way up the river trying to follow the bank with the slower water, and if anybody ever tried to figure it out.
My guess is they swap back and forth between banks to follow the slower water.
