    Default Winter Kenai Bows

    Went out yesterday from 10 till 2pm. Managed 6 fish throughout the day. 2 to myself, donald tagged 1, and sam pulled out 3.

    Got some quick vids of the action!

    Second question, What type of patterns are most successful in the winter. If I do get a chance to go out I dont want to go out with a bunch of pattrns that wont have a chance of getting a strike. Thanks.

    There are still silvers in the water so beads will work. Our best success has been beads and flesh flies. ESL's are good but with the silvers still in the river you will hook a few of those on ESL's for sure

    If you look at the vid where we land the fish in the boat, you'll see bead size and color

    Fished from Sportsman to Jim nerly a dozen on flies, the two largest were 22" and 28". Great weather and what a way to break the winter up. Beat snowmachineing or ice fishing. Can't wait to go again...

    Default Hmmm.

    I fished from Sportsman's to Jim's on Tuesday without so much as a for sure fish induced bump on the end of my line... Tried all manner of flesh and a couple of beads and nymphs. Are you sure you guys aren't fishing with an extremely realistic looking (and smelling) shrimp pattern?

    If I couldn't catch 'em, that must mean you all were cheating, right

    Just joshin' I think next time I'll take my buddy-up on his offer to row and fish a bit more myself. It was a great day for a float anyway, even if the catching was slow.
