Kenai River rainbow small fish – big accomplishment

Cassidy Kim fishes just enough to remember some things and not others.  Cassidy decided to try float fishing with a spinning rod, instead of her usual fly fishing.  Cass doesn’t fish often but when she does she fishes with Jason’s Guide Service, not enough to be great just enough to catch fish.  Cassidy is somewhat of a natural with a fly rod, but spinning gear troubles her from time to time.  We fished an afternoon  with the float rods with determination and some laughs we managed to catch some fish. It’s not always the big fish or the most fish that make a great day, sometimes it’s the little fish or the only fish that makes it.

Opening Day on Kenai River 2014

June 11 2014 opening day on the Kenai River.  Opening day anticipation is always great.  It’s usually a can’t sleep all night waiting for the alarm to go off kinda evening.  This year I started the season with the Huber brothers and their fishing buddy Yong.  The Hubers are Spey fishermen and the season started off great.  The fish were a lot farther along in there spawning due to a warm May and  some nice post spawn fish were biting.
