Thread: pro pioneer anchor-upper Kenai rainbows

    Default pro pioneer anchor-upper Kenai rainbows

    posted in the raft section a couple weeks ago with no response...

    Thinking about fishing the upper Kenai in my Pro Pioneer. I'm unsure of what sort of anchor is advised--style/weight....don't have anything for the raft at this time. I imagine most of the fishing will be from gravel bars with the boat beaches, but figure an anchor would be useful at times...?

    thanks

    I generally don't anchor but my fishing buddy does. He swears by the larger traingle anchors that the majority of the guide owned drift boats use. Anything else won't really hook up in the rocks as well.

    30# pyramid or and animal anchor, either one will work well. There are some good spots to drop anchor and fish on the upper for sure.

    Default Upper OK -- Middle read the regs!

    I know you said upper, but for those who are anchoring between RM 47-50 below Skilak Lake--read the regs! No anchoring while fishing from 8/1-12/31 between river miles 47-50. The first 3 miles below the outlet of Skilak.

    That is no anchoring and fishing from the boat below Skilak. You can anchor your boat to keep is grounded and then get out and fish.

    Right, I failed to mention that--but I've seen many with rods in hand anchored up in the middle at the dunes and below the last few weeks.

    say, where's the best place around to pick up a pyramid style anchor?
