    Default Skilak

    Anyone fished Skilak lake? Any good for sockeye dolly's? I'm going to give it a try this weekend. Figured they gotta get thru Skilak to get to the upper Kenai/Russian.

    I have slammed the reds in there but that is during the 2nd run just below the canyon. Also some good dolly fishing where the canyon emptys in there in fall but not sure about now

    I suppose you could try the lake washington trolling method for reds... Dodger and a red gami hook fished deep and slow
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default legal for salmon?

    I know I'm being lazy, but isn't Skilak lake closed to salmon?

    Default Skilak not so good

    Fishing is slow with only a few reds in the area. The first run really books it through the area.
    Dollies will be ok but If your after trout or bows you might try kenai lake around where creeks dump in!
    Went yesterday and only saw a few reds schooling up in the north end of skilak. Not many on the southend!

    Good Luck, Mid river Near Flat rock and eagle rock areas. side drifting for rainbows my be good to hot right now.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
