    Default Kenai this week!

    I have a chance to drive down tuesday night and fish wed. I was thinking about fishing bellow and around the bridge were the lake dumps into the river. Never fished this time of year or that area could use some pointers, hints, secrets anything really.

    I'm not much of a fly fishermen but could bring my 6wt. Would rather bring my 7' light action spinning gear. Just want to catch some fish in open water.

    Thanks for any help.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

    Try bottom bouncing beads, flesh flies and swinging leaches with your spinning gear or if you like you can use your fly rod. But the spinning gear will do a better job of getting your offering down to the bottom where the fish should be hanging out in the colder water now.

    Have caught many bows above the bridge on a float and black jig, water is not very deep this time of year so set shallow and then adjust. bottom has lots of slime.

    Default second that...

    there's been spawning silvers stacked up by the bridge all winter.

    for spinning gear, use the float/bottom bounce technique with jig-heads in black, white, pink, or any combination of those colors... I think pink/white will work the best though. or alternatively, a pink worm.

    for fly gear, use an 8mm washed out bead rig or flesh fly.

    and watch out for those scrappy silvers! not sure how many are left but you may snag a carcass or two.

    Has been really slow that last few weeks. No action really. Good luck.

    fished twice last week and only managed one nice trout per outing. there are still a few silvers around, but they're dropping like flies and the trout certainly don't seem to be keyed in on their eggs. very soon the trout will get aggressive again as they prepare for the spawn....

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.

    try a small green hotshot with a single hook
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
