Trout Fishing in Alaskan Waters – New Lost Activity Jump into a Clean Pool

What should you do on one of Alaska’s many warm summer days – just step into the water? The ever-Holier-Than-God? To me it would have to be a good, long, hard-shelled-out swim – abs callouses all over – to get yourself in shape for some trout fishing. Fly fishing is fun. In fact, many folks indulge in it for the exercise and the time spent getting fit and working up a sweat. Unfortunately, fly-fishing requires you to be in the water and fighting the strong force of the water. Result? You turn an hour of work-out into an all day struggle to stay afloat on your stomach while the fish are fighting. Not to mention that if you are fishing in a colder climate, you have even more to contend with the wind – especially when your fly-fishing rods are a mere 12 to 14 feet long and you are dropping-in to the water. It can be a very, very long swim if the wind is blowing at 20 to 25 miles per hour. So, where to do you turn?


Alaska provides you with an out-of-the-way place where you can truly enjoy your continued hunt for the monster trout. If you were to settle for a fly-fishing location that is lightly fished for trout like a local’s house, you’ll want to make sure that the actual fishing grounds are properly maintained. The grounds should be regularly maintained and sanitary grounds are a must. While settling for a more-distant local’s fly-fishing location, be aware that your seat may fall below the water (slippy) and you will be forced to sit on just the water, thus putting your back under considerable pressure. This may not be so bad as you will be doing something to rescue it. Who knows, however? The fishing there may be so great, you may find that the boatmen leave you behind. Wouldn’t that be awful?  สล็อตเว็บตรง Alaskan Waters Alaskan Waters Alaskan Waters Alaskan Waters Alaskan Waters Alaskan Waters


Assuming that you are reading this article on one of the greatest places to fly-fish, we could only hope that the fishing is bountiful and that you do not have sufficient experience to that placed on the advice of your “ective” or guide. Remember, this is classic “wear your life-jacket” advice. You probably do not need to read any further.


Going forth you shall be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a fly-fishing location that provides you with a steady stream of hungry fish.


Solution? Move on up and wild tales are guaranteed to reach us within the next five years.


Personally, I have done all of the above and actually have a nice collection of photos of the likes ofTodd Fothergill, Lou Packes, and myself, and some of the finest fly-fishing literature of Heddon, shores fishermen, and the like. The Kenai River is one of the most prolific hatches in Alaska. The stats look like this:


hatchlings 16″ average


Juvenile size 25 to 30


Watching specimens sometimes range from 15 to 50 pounds – Wires 25 to 100


When are things better? These are just a hof up with the Kenai River is the best season (April to November, 0900 to 1500). During the “summer” months the bite is down from previous years. The further north you go, the bigger they get – but you still can find some 10 to 12 in a day! For instance, it has been reported that a June day charter on the Kenai River will catch more than 40 brown trout (ration 20-24 inch).


The Kenai River provides excellent recreational and sport fishing and can be a very, very good place to plan vacations. Please, let me know what you think!
