Hello, I have floated the upper kenai a few times in the late summer and early fall, but I have some family coming to visit in late July and they would like to do a float on the Upper Kenai. From what I have read and heard, the rainbow and dolly fishing should be fair and picking up momentum by then, and the fishing should be fairly decent. Can anyone confirm this is true? And if so, I am assuming size 6 to 8 mm tangerine beads would be spot on? Is this correct also, or can anyone give me some advice for what works best this time of the year? The other question I had was would 10 mm beads work better because the kings will have just finished their spawn, or would it be better to try to imitate the sockeye spawn? I have also heard that flesh works well in the summer because of the dead salmon carcasses from the previous year. Is this true? Any advice anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated. If you don't want to advertise your secrets in public maybe you wouldn't mind sending me a pm? Thanks in advance for the help. I appreciate the advice. Maybe I can return the favor down the road.
