    Default How does it take to float upper Kenai

    How long does it take to float from the bridge to Jim's landing on the upper Kenai, on the average? I am planning on going next weekend for reds and bows. I usually do the float from Sportsmans to Jim's.

    It depends on how long you stop and fish. I would plan on a full day of fishing. I'm sure the float can be done in under five hours if you float straight through, but who wants to do that?

    Plan for 8hrs +. If you row straight thru its like 4-5hrs. Lot depends on CFS. Done it at 500cfs and at 12000cfs. Makes a big difference

    I think the last time I took some out-of-towners and did a sightseeing trip (no fishing), it took almost exactly 3 hrs to float straight thru. You can easily spend all day on that stretch if the fishing is good. Watch out for Schooner's bend (and stay to the inside), right after you pass under the highway bridge.

    We're usually in the water by 830 and out anywhere from 7 to 10 depending on weather and how good the fishing is.

    There, is that non-technical enough for you?
