    Default Upper Kenai Oct 3

    Well first off who pulled the plug on the river. The water has dropped so much in the 10 days i was away from it.

    Fishing was slow by the standards for sure. We were fighting 20 mile and hour winds thank god the were blowing down stream.


    Between the 5 of us there was around 22 fish hooked and 14 or so landed. June And I and Paul pretty much got smoked. Jose got a couple. Megan was the one that was on fire. She kicked out butts. She popped one nice bow around 21-22 inches that was just beautiful. There rest were in the 16 inch range. Beads were still working. Fishes flesh to with little success and a purple ESL did smack a couple.

    The wild part was we me akfishinggirl and her family on the water. We all sarted to float they leading the way. Im looking down river at them and holy ****. a huge 40 to 60 foot cottonwood legs go and slams the water like 10 feet behind thier boat and about 30 feet in front of Jose's. Needless to say we all cleaned our drawers out after that one and said a little prayer.

    I'm still down on the river so I will post pics when i get homoe tonight

    Well, at least he's keeping that stuff in the privacy of his own home.

    What an adventure!!! I'd still float with Chuck, but I'll be on the lookout for leaning cottonwoods!

    I can't remember how to put the pics into this message, so here are the links...it was chilly and windy, but still beautiful!

    Default cottonwood tree

    That sure sounds to close for sure. Is it still hanging there as a sweeper or did it float on down stream?

    NO sweeper. It laid there for a bit and turned to hug the bank. A few branches went down steam. This pig of a tree wont be moving untill may when the water comes up and maybe not then. It was large
