The second run sockeyes and the rainbows

The second run of sockeye salmon are starting to show up in the Kenai.  When the river is choked out with sockeye it affects the Rainbow’s, the trout change there patterns because of the salmon, and it can be trickier to catch them.  It’s time to fish were the salmon aren’t and the food is, it’s the time of year when big hatches happen, when flesh fresh and old is everywhere, and the smolt, sculpins, and leeches are still in the river too.  Don’t hesitate to fish “classic” trout patterns as well as all the Alaska favorites if you want consistency on the water.  This could be you.
