I will going down to the Upper Kenai opener Saturday and will be floating it (cataraft) in search of my first Kenai hog. I am fairly new to fly fishing (3 years) and even newer to the Kenai (a few fall/winter hike-ins, floated it last opener due to lack of Russian reds).
I grew up in the valley and fish primarly the Parks streams so I am wondering what are the recommended fly patterns to fish at this time of the year. I have been told everything from smolt to eggs to flesh. It seems a little late for smolt and early for eggs or flesh but that is why I am here.
I read these forums quite often and have learned a ton from them. Please help me out.
