    Default Looking for some Bows

    I'm relatively new to the area and have fished places like Montana, Willow, Quarts but never this early in the year. I have some family coming to town for a few days and we would like to get a line wet. any suggestions? We don't have a boat so drifting the Kenai is out of the question. I have fished Montana early with some ice, but don't know what the conditions are like up there. Thanks

    as in right now? Try ice fishing
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Quartz creek will be ok starting with smolt and rotted flesh moving on to eggs etc. I would ask the guys at trout fitters, the russian has some dry fly action. The upper kenai is worth a guided trip, awesome fishing, can't go wrong that way. Many of the lakes out on the refuge have great potential if you got your hands on a canoe. When are you going to try?

    No, don't try ice fishing. Fire Lake in Eagle River is already receeding back from the banks. Now is not the time to try your luck on the ice. It might be safe in spots, but it's not worth the risk.

    Do not go ice fishing this time of year, its not that healthy.
