    Default Favorite River to Fish?

    This is an extremely vague question, but where is your favorite fishing river. I know alot of you have a certain river you fish during a certain time of the year, but...what is your all time favorite for the year, no choosing what time of the year. The attached picture is mine. Recognize it?

    Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.

    Default Drift Boat Monday

    I would have to say the Kenai River in June and July on Mondays catching king salmon. The next best would be the North Umpqua in Oregon catching summer and winter run steeelhead.

    Intriquing, but the bluffs in the background throw me off. No I don't recognize the spot. My favorite creek is Byers Creek and my favorite river is the Kenai. But that is only for fishing, I have other favorites for different reasons.

    Upper Chena, because it reminds me of fishing the Gallatin and Bitterroot when I was a kid. Alone, and nothing but fishing in front of you. The Kenai scares the crap out of me, I don't like to combat fish.

    I have enjoyed many rivers in Alaska but I think if I had to pick one it is the Chuitna River. Good Rainbows, the king fishing is hot in the spring, a solid run of silvers throughout the summer, and it is just remote enough to keep the crowds at bay.

    Brian, I saw that hole on Alaska Outdoors many years ago.

    My favorite has been the Little Su for a long time. Been fishing it forever and seen some very cool things happen in that river. Best one has to be a friends wedding in hip boots .

    Watched my dad catch a king on a Fathers Day first cast there last year.

    Watched my kids catch many salmon when it would have been quite hard to have them be able to fish salmon anywhere else.

    I'm no whitewater expert, but man...I don't think it would be a very good idea.

    I'll dig up some other pics of it that show the drop from the top and where you might go splat.
