    Default traveler on the kenai?

    Has anyone ever fished on the Kenai for kings drifting with a Traveler that has a rowing frame? If not, do you see any problems or potential problems with it? Any thoughts or input on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Should be fun. That's a nice stable boat.

    Default Big kings

    The only problem is if you get a big king, they sometimes run up river for a while, before then going back down river, then back up river, then back to where you started. A motor really helps when chasing, if you can get to an eddy and fight the fish you might stand a chance. Good luck, Gerberman

    Default Upper Kenai...

    An AIRE Traveler fitted with a rowing frame would be fun and effective on the upper Kenai drifting for 'bows and dollys. All along the drift-only-nonmotorized-section there are gravel bars and small islands where you can pull-out/eddy out and fish for red salmon. With a buddy in the front and a cooler and drybag in the back you are gonna have some fun days (along with a hundred other drifting boats on weekends).
