  • It's fishing season...

    ...and all I can say is THANK GOD! :w00t:

    I fished Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this weekend, and caught at least 30 trout and grayling... Thank god it's fishing season. It was a long winter...

    Where's the smiley for 'complete and utter contentment'?

      Those cruisers seem pretty disinterested in everything I ever throw at them. I have gotten a few to hit small (size 18) dries before, but nothing else. It doesn't make sense to me... Fish can act goofy this time of year sometimes :-S

        I think its due to the urge to spawn and looking for moving water, they still have the instinct to do it even though the are sterile.

          Wife just completed her first fly fishing lesson with Pudge and I think maybe she now has the bug, no pun intended! I have been lookng for some calm begginer waters for her to strat. We have been to a few local anchorage lakes this week but with no success. Most likely due to my abilities. Thought with your recent successful weekend, you would piont me in the right direction. Saw that fusion's kids were catching some nice fish, and well I hope that I could get my wife to catch a fish this weekend. Not looking for any secrets, just a direction, north, south, highway accessible? Any help is greatly appreciated.

          Thanks

            TGJ,

            Hit the Kepler Bradley lakes out near Palmer. Theres usually plenty of opportunities to catch fish in there. As long as the wind isn't howling like it has been, it should be some pretty calm water. Here is a publication that can get you started as well, lots of good info here:

            Fish On!
            You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...

                  hey you two.............stop telling secrets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go tie some fly's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get off the internet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                  By the way 900 I got your my flys from the swap, I liked how you put that paper on the hook, not like I could tie that hting but it was nice to know what was in it so if I want to try.

                  TGJ- get a map or some thing of the stocked lakes in the valley, and then google map them or some thing for directions to get there.........then bust out the float tube and hit the gravle bars. You and your wife wont go wrong, but make sure you take a little bit of every thing when it comes to flies because bows can act funny this time of year. I usually find any thing with a little bit of red works good, but that is just me. If you want to know more ask CUBE........he lives on the lake though he has been spotted on the kenai with power bait and a spinner! LOL 900 has good info as well as most of the people on here that are nice enough to help you out, good luck to you!

                    Agreed, I'm gonna start doing that paper on the hook thing in swaps from now on... Pretty good idea 900.

                    As for the powerbait and spinner... We all know that's not true. Coming from you though, I'm surprised you'd bring something like that up...



                    I think that's the Kenai even!

                          In all fairness to my buddy Kenaibowfan, here is the original image, before any untruthful comments about Cube01's use of spin gear were made. :nyanya:
