    Im coming back from Iraq in september, and Im going to be one the water the last weekend of september, so im trying to find somewhere that will have some big bows. I was thinking montana creek "parks highway" or just hitting the kenei.

    You want big bows hit the Middle Kenai and you'll get 'em.

    I just got back from Willow Creek and it was dead. I think it had to do with all of the pinks in the river. They were thick all the way to Shirley Towne bridge and there were eggs everywhere. I went last year in mid-August and had consistent 20-30 fish days, but only the chums and a few silvers were in at the time. I think the big trout are still in there, but are either getting pushed out by the aggressive spawners or have plenty to eat and could care less about beads. Hopefully, when the pinks die off there will be good fishing. You might be timing it just right.

    There are plenty of spots to walk in on the Upper Kenai.
    Where ever there is one of those pullouts/parking areas there are trails leading to the river.
