    Default trout fishing NINILCHIK?

    I am going halibut fishing out of Ninilchik (Kenai peninsula) next week. Can anyone tell me if there is trout fishing near there? Should I bring a fly rod? Thanks.

    I'm going out of the Ninilchik in a couple of weeks, too, and asked the same question from my charter. Was told there isn't really anything close by and would have to drive out towards the Kenai/Kasilof/Russian river area.

    The russian is a great area to chase bows. I like to park at pink salmon and work my way down the river fishing each hole taking my time. I use my 6wt and have had much success using beadhead princess nymphs. On the average i catch 6-10 fish anywhere from 12 to 20 inches. Make sure to bring some coho flys just in case you get a big school of reds moving past and you can hook a few of those too. any other questions please feel free to pm me as im am on the kenai russian just about every weekend all summer

    Caught a 24 incher and 22 and an 18 on the russian today. Dollies come into the ninilchik in about a month where they provide a good opportunity
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Seriously thats uncalled for, and you can't keep trout over 16" in the russian and I just can't seem to catch any smaller than 18
