    Cube is doing the same....

    I will be floating a Parks stream on Friday. Don't know why people freakout when it gets a little chilly and the water levels drop...
    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~

    It is perhaps a bit less pleasant, but I see folks tossing flesh flies on the upper Kenai into January, February, and beyond. There is also ice fishing to be had all winter long as well.

    Im one of the nut jobs fishing the kenai through march. We have had great success through march. Late silver run spawning at the bridge and big bows laying behind them. We have pulled many mid 20 inch fish out of there. Yes it is cold for 4 or 5 hours but it beats wishing you were fishing. Hand warms and a good mental attitude gets me through it. Oh and the heater in the truck to thaw out on the way home

    The "off-season" is for training and prep. Tie flies, dream, watch AK Outdoors TV, and hope for an early spring.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Oh yeah Jedi, I'm gonna pledge to fish winter kings this year. My dream would be to find a charter guy that I got along w/, because I intend on being a strong finisher in the Homer derby in March. Possibly numba 1 word-up!

    It would be nice to be able to go to Hawaii for 5 months but thats out of the question. I do a little ice fishing in the winter. Its been a long time since I fished the Kenai R. in winter. If I could swing it I would be in Oregon Steelhead fishing in the winter.
