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.

Jason was a spectacular guide! Has tremendous knowledge of the Kenai River landscape. We caught 6 sockeye with his guidance. Great experience!

Better late than never! I had the luxury of Jason guiding me for a day of fly fishing. Fortunately for me, the other party was a no show, so I had the trip to myself. Oh, did I mention that I have never fly fished ever? Jason was EXTREMELY patient and within no time, I was catching fish. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and even if I hadn't caught a fish, it would have been money well spent. Seriously, if you get the chance, take a tour with him... you will not regret it.

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!

BEST fishing trip ever! We fished with an outfitter in Juneau and that went good too but Jason was hands down far better and we caught way more fish. He just seemd to care more and was teaching us so much. I'd have to say Jason is the best fishing guide on the Kenai bar none.
