Rondy: Alaska Kenai River Float Trip
Dates: Dates fishing are September 25,26 and 27, 2022
Leader: Michael Souter mailto:email@example.com
Number of anglers (including leader): 9
Description: This Rondy is a 3-day guided float fly-fishing adventure on the scenic and famous Kenai River in Alaska where we will fly-fish for big Alaska size Rainbow and Dolly Varden Trout and Silver Salmon during prime time. Guides will drift through miles of scenic water in custom built power drift boats where we will predominately nymph egg and flesh patterns for Trout and strip for Silvers. We will periodically take out to swing depending on water levels so bring your Spey rod if interested. Boots with felt soles are not allowed in Alaska and studs are not allowed in boats so rubber soles are your best option. There will be one guide and boat for every 3 anglers. They will provide top-quality fly-fishing gear and flies but not Spey rods. Snacks, and water will also be provided each day. Bring bag lunch.
We can meet and carpool from Anchorage airport to Soldotna, which is about 100 miles south of Anchorage (2 hours) or meet in Soldotna depending on preference. We will meet up with our guides at the nearby launch site each morning.
