For those of you who fished Kings on the Kenai during mid/late July this past season, you probably noticed that there were far less fish caught in tidewater than usual. Some of the most popular holes on the Kenai (The Beav, Mud Island, the Pasture, Cunningham, and the Bridge) were virtually abandoned on some days due to a complete lack of production. While fishing was generally tougher than usual, and high water played its part, there were still fish being caught in decent numbers - nearly all of them from the Toilet Hole and above. I've heard lots of theories behind this phenomenon, but I'm curious what some of you guys think. I've fished the river for 20 years+ and can't remember a year when the trend was this drastic. You know they had to push through tidewater to get upstream where they were finally being caught, but they certainly weren't biting down there... weird.... any ideas?
