Why do you rarely see people fishing the center or the east end of Kenai Lake......???
I stated that the lake was commercially fished at one point in the thread on Trot lines. What I know is mostly second hand information from old timers, who remember conversations with old timers.
Back in the early 70's we were putting in by the power plant, for spring bear hunting. There were two or three lines in the lake near the outfall. The maintenance man was there and we talked with him about fishing Kenai Lake.
He stated that the fish circle the lake in a clockwise or counter clockwise direction, and I do not remember which he stated. He said it took seven to ten days for the fish to circle the lake.
So his theory was that people did not fish the main body of the Kenai Lake because most of the fish were in one school and that school could be anywhere on the massive lake.
And that only by having sets, or nets, or trot lines around the lake could you ever know where the fish where.
All of that could be "Bunk", I am not a sport fisherman, so I have no idea if it even might be true.
That said, a lot has changed in the last 40 to 80 years, and there must be some way to track or find fish today.
So "NOT" counting the outlet of Kenai Lake, what do you know about fishing the main body of the lake....???
