    Friend fished the AIH classic this past weekend. Said between the 4 of them they caught 6.......and one big sockeye. All of them, even the sockeye, were caught on single hook quickfish. Btw.....he said the sockeye was bigger than all the silvers.

    Talked to a lot of guides that are getting limits without bait in the lower river. With high water you just have to adjust the water fished.

    Fish much closer to shore, inside tips are getting hit, also down size in the kwikfish, that seems to be huge.

    Plenty of good tips on here. Been swinging flies myself from shore, paying particular attention to water near the bank as river carries a lot of volume right now. Early morning and late evening seen a lot of hook-ups (every 15 to 20 minutes) so must be a good number of fish coming through. Ratio for me seems to be one red for every three or four silvers. Like stated above, really good-sized reds showing up (and chrome too!) with silvers averaging 5 to 8 pounds, although did land a couple that were nudging 15. Good luck!

    Awesome, i'm starting to get pissed about this bathroom not being done! I'm one fitting short of finishing the drain though, so i'm fishing all weekend! Thanks again for all the tips!

    Went out yesterday and saw a few caught early in the morning on the lower kenai with pixies. Planning on hitting them when they start running a little stronger and taking the kids to drift some eggs, they get a kick out of that.

    What is silver fishing like below the WA bridge: tide stage, tackle (etc)?. I've been wanting to try it with my kayak.

    I've never fished below WA, always above cunningham, I typically fish spin-n-glow and eggs or flat line a quickfish. I like the structure of the river around mud island, I feel like the fish can spread out too much below mud island, particularly when the tide is coming in or high. You might do ok in the lower section on the second half of the outgoing or low tide, but some folks feel the fish come in with the incoming tide?

    "Flat line a quickfish"...??? No diver, no lead?
    I generally fish from Cunningham's bank or Soldotna Creek, but I am dying to try the kayak.
