    Smile Fishing lakes on the Kenai

    Hello all Its been forever since I have been on the pc. I was just curious about fishing hidden lake and crescent lake? I will be coming home to visit after being gone for 6 years. Anyhow can anyone give me any info on what to use for trolling in hidden lake for lakers? Also how far of a hike is it to crescent lake and would a fly rod be ideal for catching Grayling? also any recomendations on colors or patterns so on and so forth

    Please anyone with any information that can help me out I would appreciate it

    P.S. I cant wait to come home even though it is only gonna be for 2 weeks this time I have missed it so much. Of course while Im there im gonna catch some reds on the Kenai as well

    Thanks all
    John

    Grayling = perfect fly rod fish

    Use stimulators, tangle lake teasers, elk hair caddis, and smallish wet flies like partridge and peacock
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default Thanks for the Info

    Thanks for the replys guys . Does anyone have any info on Hidden lake and what works well? My brother has a little boat and wants to take it up there when I come up on Vacation. He is not sure what to use for trolling, and all I ever did was Ice fish on Hidden. I cant wait to get up there I have been counting the days since I bought the Plane tickets (back in Jan. hehe).

    Thanks again

    i'm not an expert on hidden, but i think the basic ways to fish are: bait on the bottom, trolling hot shots, or vertical jigging. i know some guys who like to troll hot shots and they do well at times.

    Thumbs up

    It is around 7 miles round trip to crescent lake. Uphill going in of course with a gain of about 3500 feet. Your can rent the horses in quartz creek and ride it but for the money they will fly you out of moose pass for 200 a person. Senic mountain air. Your best bet is to rent the USFS cabin there for the night 40 bucks i think. They have a boat there for you to use also. fly rods work great there but if the wind picks up have an ultra light spinning rod fo back up. Mepps 0-1's knock them dead. All types of dry flys work and bead head princess nymphs slayed them also.
    Fish on
