Can this be true??? The Lower Kenai is still producing limit catches for coho... While the fishing wasn't necessarily "hot", it was definitely consistent, and absolutely fantastic.
We launched at 8:30 this morning and put the last rod away at 3:00 pm. The water conditions were excellent with 45 degree water temp and exceptional visibility. The amazing thing was fishing this good but practically having the river to ourselves! We shared our section of the river (all that we could see) with 3 other boats, none within 1/4 mile.
We fished three rods, two with k-15's/sardine and one with eggs. The k-15's outfished the eggs 8-1. The color of the kwikie didn't matter as much as the action. I fished four different colors and produced on each (even 1 rookie!).
The weather turned amazing by the end of the day and the cooler was full. This was an excellent way to end the season.
