(Hi guys, got some great feedback on Washington Fly Fishing Forum, figured id post in one more spot. Thank you)
Good evening gentlemen,
I hope this post find everyone warm on this cold Sunday afternoon. While I sit here and am forced to watch the Golden Globes with my significant other, I figured I’d pop in as I have a few questions for those who have fished the Kenai.
In mid September, my father and I are taking a “father-son” trip to Cooper Landing Alaska staying at River Haven Cabins. Its about **** time I repay him for all the trips he’s taken me on J
Anyway, I know my first priority is to scour the rules and regulations to see what rivers are open and what rivers are closed. For a 3 days, we have secured a guide (who happens to be a good friend) that has a drift boat and jet boat. However, my question is based on the latter part of the trip when we will be wade fishing.
Besides the Russian River, are there any other rivers in the area worth checking out? I have been looking at maps pretty regularly and there are obviously TONS of “feeder” creeks, but I am unsure if they hold fish.
Other big rivers in the area I saw was Surprise Creek, Slaughter Creek.
Not looking for any spots, by any means, just looking to be pointed in the right direction. Rather not fish a string of rivers normally void of fish.
Anyone who has fished the Cooper Landing area before and wants to weigh in, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you folks, tight lines!
