    Default Wanted suggestions/info on the russian?

    New to fly fishing and fairly new to alaska. I have always wanted to go down and fish the russian, but have honestly always been a little intimidated by the combat fishing i hear about. Was told that the crowds have gone and was wondering if it is worth my time to drive down from anchorage, also if a 5wt rod would be to small. Also if i can get to the river without taking the ferry, since i heard it was closed for the season. Any info you are willing to share would be greatly appreciated. If anyone has a place they think would be better for me to try i am always open to suggestions. thanks

    You can park in pink salmon parking area at the russian and walk down to the river. Bead bite is on. You can work it all the way down to the confluence and spend the day doing it. Fishing is pretty good. It is a solid bet right now
