Alaska June 2010

Recommended Posts

As we sit in the winter boredom with an impending snowstorm I am daydreaming and have a chance to put up some pictures of my summer trip to Alaska.

We attended the Kenai Fishing Academy for a week. This is an abbreviated version of what all Kenai River guides must take to be certified on the river. They say it is the most regulated body of water in the world, and I believe it!.

As part of the trip we did a flyout to a remote lake for Lakers and Dolly Varden.



That was my first ever attempt at fly fishing and I must say I really enjoyed it. Caught so many Dolly Varden that we couldn't keep count.


This was a view from the plane that we took on the way over to the lake. I took over 600 pictures while there.


Fished the Kenai for kings one day and booted a good one at the stern. Guide said it was approx. 50 lbs. Damn!

Halibut fishing was another great day with flat water but never did locate the big ones. Nevertheless, lots of good eatin was brought home.


Highlight of the trip was drift fishing in the upper Kenai with a guide named Paul Tornow. This guy was great and was the most enthusiastic charter I have ever used. Every fish caught he was as excited as us. Really got the beginners lesson on fly fishing and he was a great teacher. I caught several fish on a 2 weight rod and he made me feel like a pro.




If you ever make a trip up there, I highly recommend Paul as a Kenai River fishing guide. http://alaskasanglingaddiction.com

I really enjoyed the trip and will go back again someday. I have lots of places I still want to visit and types of fish to catch yet.

      My brother and I are selling this very nice FishHunter. This is the last year Champion made these boats. If you’re looking for a multi-purpose boat to fish, cruise, use for water sports, and perform safely in rough water look no further! This boat has been stored inside out of the elements and it shows. The fiberglass, seats, and carpet are all in excellent condition. This also has the jump seat in the back so it has plenty of room for a family. The engine is a Mercury 150hp Optimax and it wil

      Went out in the morning, about 615 am. Went East towards stack. Started in 106 FOW. Trolled for half mile or mile then cut to North. Trolled out to 350 then back into 150 again. Very slow day for us. We had a 209 cooper. A 300 copper. A 10 color lead. Riggers at various depths from 55 to 100. Two dipsey rods at 150 to 180.
