Expert anglers know that depending on what species of fish you’re trying to catch, the types of fishing boats that you should use varies. The boat can be just as important in your success in catching the fish as the method you use and the time in the season that you go on your fishing trips.
The Kenai River is known across the globe for its salmon fishing. Often times, anglers book trips at Jimmie Jack’s Alaska Fishing Lodge specifically for our several salmon fishing day trips. After each fishing season, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game tracks and reports the Kenai River fish counts for year-to-year comparisons.
As the end of summer approaches, the prime time to fish many species ends, too. However, for rainbow trout, the best months are still ahead of us.
