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.

Better than 99 percent of the other fisherman on the Kenai. He knows his stuff and really tries to not only get you on the fish but teach you as well. Had lots of fun and got lots of good video too.

My son really wanted to fish on our trip to Alaska and not being a fisherman myself, I figured the best option was a guide. Not only did Jason accommodate our last minute scheduling, but he ensured we had a great time, caught the fish, and best of all, made memories that will last a lifetime. ps. Even this "non-fisherman" caught a few! Highly recommend Jason to anyone.

Got to Alaska on Sunday August 5. Found out Jason and his wife delivered their first Baby on Saturday. Congrats to the happy and blessed family. Jason's other guide Collin was nice enough to cover our trip. Literally from the time the first fly hit the Upper Kenai to the last 20 plus inch Rainbow was in the net nearly 5 hours later, we were on fish. Collins attention to detail, knowledge of the river and bugs as well as instruction for our novice anglers was outstanding. Oh and goes without saying. "THIS KID CAN FLAT FISH" If you are looking for a top Guide service look no further. You need to fish with these guys. Thanks so much for a very memorable day. Allan and Tina Simpson.

Cant wait to come back ice fishing with Jason later on. This was so much fun and we saw all kinds of wildlife. Caught fish too. No giants but that doesnt matter. Its just fun being out there and learning.
