Dog Days of July

Fly fishing the Kenai can be real easy or real tough.  The dog days of July are coming, and that’s when things get tougher.  The water temp is in constant fluctuation and the fish are getting conditioned all over again.  That’s alright because they still bite, it’s all about staying on top of things now, lighter lines, better presentations, and consistency.  The fish are in the river and they don’t stop eating it’s just a little tougher to get them to bite, it’s about the small details, so don’t give up on them, just fish smarter and harder.

We had the best time with Jason and his team on our fishing trip! We did a half day with Caleb and a full day with Jason and left with over 40 pounds of salmon. Both Jason and Caleb were friendly, knowledgeable about the best spots on the river, and were great teachers on fishing technique that made it easy for all skill levels. Highly recommend Jason and his team for your next Alaskan fishing adventure!!

Jason is truly Amazing!! He took my wife and I out for the trip of a Lifetime! Fishing was great and he was extremely helpful to my wife who was brand new to fly fishing. We felt well taken care of, safe, and prepared. We hope you enjoy your Idaho wine Jason! Cheers!
