Upper Kenai And Russian Rivers Opened At Midnight

first_imgLegal tackle in the Russian River area is a single-hook, artificial fly, with hook gap no larger than 3/8 inch. Most anglers use a bucktail streamer fly, such as a Russian River Coho Fly, with enough weight at least 18 inches ahead of the fly so that the hook travels close to the bottom of the river. The Russian and Kenai River make up one of the most popular sport fishing spots in Alaska. Russian River is open from June 11–August 20, these waters are fly-fishing-only waters, according to the Department of Fish and Game. Fishing areas are managed between multiple different agencies who all work cooperatively to keep anglers informed of forecasts, and to ensure the areas are maintained and regulations followed. Oftentimes, best success is early morning or late evening, when the sun is not directly shining on the river. Sockeye also tend to hug the bank, and long casts are not necessary. Good numbers of fish aren’t usually present until the last week of June, according to DF&G.center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Ready, set, go, it’s time to start fishing. As of midnight Tuesday, the Upper Kenai and Russian Rivers officially opened to fisherman. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/232213last_img read more
