    Smile Upper kenai this weekend?

    Well ive never fished the kenia before and was planning on a trip this weekend... any tips for some dollys and bows?

    I might be able to have a boat to float but probaly not.

    Any specific areas to fish? What flys are the best? I have a lot of purple ESL's and some flesh flies, but i really dont know what to catch them on.

    So please any help would be awesome! Tight lines!!

    The upper Kenai is closed tell June 11th. You might want to avoid it unless you want an expensive ticket. Might want to try somewhere else.

    Unfortunately, the upper kenai is closed until June 11th (it might be the 15th, I haven't checked the regs this year.

    The lakes on the K.P. can be good though.

    Valley fish are slowley dieing off.... Seems like it to me

    I really have no place to fish now lol. As being a 14 year old who is a c&r person, i only use my bike for around palmer fishing, and respect alot of the fish, the thing is the pollution is terrible!

    I rode the boat out on multiple lakes and there so much garbage. Kinda seems like the pilgrams are trashing our land. And those crazy teens.

    Call me crazy, but any areas to flyfish this weekend? anywere lol

    I am not against the flippin kenai, since I cannot but suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering every other stream... ~Paul O'Neil~/~Wyo2AK~

    Default No fish left in the valley?

    Yes for sure keep telling everyone how lame the lakes are in the valley. If you want to river fish go north up the parks its open up there.

    Since you are in Palmer, did you try Meirs lake? It has grayling and rainbows and there is at least one 5lb trout still swimming around the lake.

    I'm seeing conflicting reports here...

    ANGLER: redhaidTRIP DATE: 5/16REGION: Matsu ValleyWATER: Long LakeSPECIES: trout
    REPORT: Fishing is hot. Trout are hungry! Caught about 6 in 45 minutes and a real large one out of Canoe Lk. in about 10 minutes casting right where the trail ends.

    Also fished a lake down Pt. McKenzie road. A bit slower than usual, but wind made it hard to fish in my canoe. Mostly small trout and grayling. I am catching them on bead heads and olive green nymphs.

    KP lakes. If you have a boat Id give engineer lake on skilak lake loop road a try. Lots of landlocked salmon in there. 0-1 mepps work very very well for them.


    Also watson lake just off the sterling highway. I have been fishing both watson and engineer since 78 and always have had good success there. Just read the regulation sign at watson. A fork of the moose flows our of it on the left side as your standing at the boat launch. You cannot fish within 300 feet or 300 yards of it I believe. 0-1 mepps work there as well as stripping some leaches or buggers. Light weight gear and alot of fun. Watson is one of the few lakes I will eat a rainbow out of. They have always been good and tasty over the fire.
