    Question Books on Kenai river hatches?

    Does anyone know of any books specific to the Kenai river that give a detailed description of hatches?

    Nope, no one cares about insects in the kenai for some reason, but here's the run down:

    June - Lots of BWOs lots of Caddis probably the peak of caddis is late june, the russian has a few sulfurs or something lightish
    July - A few green drakes (rumored by a few, I haven't seen any yet), BWOs scattered caddis, yellow sallies some size 10 dark stoneflies that never seem to be near the water as adults
    August - BWOs, midges,

    Basically there are a ton of BWOs and a Ton of Caddis, a few stones, some other random mayflies. Dry fly fishing can be good if you don't mind catching smaller fish. I fish something like a humpy or parachute adams and do pretty well until late august, once the eggs start dropping the fun fishing is over (and the hoards desend).
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    I wouldn't trust the fat kid.

    Try this book instead.
