    Default Reds on the Russian/Kenai?

    I see the fish count on the Russian was way down on Saturday. Anyone fish the Russian or Kenai Saturday or Sunday? Would love to hear a weekend report.

    Fished at Bing's Landing yesterday with no bites for an hour. Didn't see anyone walking out with fish, either.

    Fished both days- very, very slow. I was in the river by 5 AM both days- on Saturday saw 5 fish in an hour and a half, Sunday a few more but not many. Spent the days on the river working as a StreamWatcher, occasionally saw someone walking back with a fish, one group had two fish, that was about it. I guess some were doing better downriver,, because I saw a few backpacks that looked like they were holding a few fish, but considering the number of people fishing, it was grim.

    We fished downriver from the Russian today. Touched one fish. Very slow. Saw a few caught just below the Russian.

    I fished there on Monday it was slow. I fished down by the power lines. One guy found a nice hole caught 5 in about an hour and a half while the rest of us in the area had one fish on at one point but could not land it. It seems to be really slowing down I would wait till the late run starts.

    My wife and I fished at the ferry yesterday. 5 hours we landed 3 fish, lost 6 trying to get them in. It seemed to pick up in the late evening. No bears, but heard there was a sow and cub brown and one black bear running around. Good luck to everyone!

    Was down there last weekend, caught 4 but it was slow. Lots of people fishing and not many catching. I imagine it being similar this weekend.

    Just got back from 2 days of fishing the lower Kenai. 3 of us landed one fish. Lots of people and slow action.

    Fished 3 hours tonight in Soldotna, lost a couple and managed to land one. Saw about 10 others caught, too slow for me!
