Fishing Kenai R to Skilak Lake this past wkd

My last fishing pass for the summer 

This past wkd fishing on the Kenai R

This past Friday – Saturday my friends Frank & Frank & I floated the upper Kenai, camped and fished near Skilak Lake. Still a little early but were able to catch a few anyways. Will go again in a month when it should be better, assuming weather cooperates. 

Yes I improperly handled my fish. I was alone and wanted proof. 19” Rainbow 

Russian River Camping and Day Float on Kenai R.

For labor day wkd we camped at Russian River CG and did a day float on the Kenai R.  Once done we learned that bearings went out on my trailer.  Had to leave my trailer behind to get repaired.

For the wkd of July 15 we headed north to Byers Lake with the Glascotts.  Lots of canoeing and casting.  Plus a 5 mile day hike around the lake-a first for our boys.

Gulkana River Pt 3

Gulkana River Day 2

Gulkana River Float Part 1

During July 4th wkd a group of us set off to do a 5-day float on the Gulkana River NE of Anchorage.  The trip starts with a 3 mile crossing of Paxon Lake.  We used my 15 HP moter to get all of us across the lake to the effluent River.  Once at the river we pulled off to start fishing and as hoped, it was great fishing for grayling and rainbow trout.  I got to enjoy watching my boys casting, catching, reeling in fish over and over again.  Next I need to get them to remove the hooks out of the fish themselves.  Oh well, they’re only 5 yrs old.  Maybe next yr?  The first two days were sunny,  hot, and buggy too.  We made time to fish while we had good weather.  Then the rain came.
