Thread: Upper Kenai Fishing Report for Bows

    Default Upper Kenai Fishing Report for Bows

    My wife and I are coming down to the Kenai next weekend for a float on the Upper. I know the water levels are high, but how is the fishing? Is it blown out? Is anybody catching any bows down there with all this high water or what? We are not going to cancel regardless. It's our anniversary. Just curious if fish are being pulled out lately?

    Not a first hand report but it should be good. Spawning sockeyes and hungry bows has gotta make something

    Did the upper last weekend in the rain and the biggest fish on that float was around 27" landed by ak_sierra. Beads and flesh flies are the ticket to hooking up rainbows and dollies this time of the year. Don't forget to bring some silver(coho) flies with you because there should be some in the upper river by then. Heading back Sunday, hopefully without the rain. Tight lines.
    Only those that can see the invisible can do the impossible.

    water level:

    fishing for trout could be good, great, bad, or dismal. The fish are there and are all summer
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    I was down after some reds today and looked like lots of boats were hooking up with rainbows. There were a lot of small rainbows jumping clean out of the water on a regular basis. Saw one huge dolly laying under a tree tight against the bank. No way to get a line in to where he was though. Saw another really nice rainbow in a slackwater back channel. Their in there and the water is coming down I believe.
