Fishing Kenai R to Skilak Lake this past wkd

My last fishing pass for the summer 

My week

Here are some pics from this week. Last Saturday while Deb was doing the Lost Lake race (16 mi) I took boys up Flattop, our local convenient mtn to climb. 
Next Deb and some character you might recognize at a BBQ last Sat PM
Boys after 1st week of school were then given HW Monday. So I’m attempting to teach them to stay seated and do a half hr of HW each night. 
The rest are from Monday PM and Tuesday fishing w buds on Kenai R. It was an epic day of fishing!!

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

Day Trip Fishing with Wally on Upper Kenai River

On Sept 12 I spent a week day fishing with Wally on the upper Kenai R fly fishing for Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden.  As always, a very pleasant day of fishing and hangin’ with Wally.

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.  

Camping in Hope for first wkd in August

We went camping with our neighbors/friends for a wkd in Hope.  One of the highlights is having the kids fish for Pink Salmon (Humpy’s), plus lots of trails for hiking or riding thier bikes….always keeping an eye out for bears!

Red fishing on Russian River Late June 2017

On the last wkd of June my friend Frank and I went down to the Kenai R for a day float and ended up hitting the peak of the first red run (Sockeye Salmon) at the confluence of the Russian R and Kenai R.  Unfortunately my dip net was for trout, not Salmon, so it was destroyed during netting the first fish.  After that it was a challenge to scoop the fish with the broken net.  We lost many, but were able to quickly catch more.  

Last wkd in Hope Ak

Camped in Hope last wkd. Excellent weather & awesome fishing for pink salmon (humpys). Boys had a blast catching lots of big fish for them.
