Fly Fishing Russian River in Alaska .Just a few highlights of fly fishing for rainbow trout.I'm an avid fisherman who's on an amazing adventure traveling and fishing the country one state at a time. I'm super excited to share this unique experience with you all of fishing for brand new species, learning new techniques, and testing out new gear all while taking in the breathtaking scenery of our United States. As a member of Pond Hopper Nation and a Salty Scales Ambassador, I cannot wait to share my travels and knowledge with fellow anglers. If I'm ever at a town near you, I'd love to wet a line. Stay tuned for new locations every three to six months and until then remember "a bad day of fishing beats a good day at work"! You can follow me on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/The-Travel...
Waited for the summer crowds to leave and the 2nd run of reds to spawn before taking the GoPro HD camera for a little underwater viewing on the Kenai & Russian rivers in Alaska. It was a warm, sunny day on September 10th, 2010 which is not typical but the spawned reds were pretty colorful underwater. The GoPro has been fun but could probably do better with a filter. The 1st run of Silver salmon were coming through as well but not real thick this day. Typical when the rivers are filled with spawners there ends up a lot of snagged fish while going for chrome silvers or for the Dollies and rainbow fishing. A great day with my son visiting and with our friend Gary Keller who was a contestant on the Ultimate Sportsman show this last year. Gary is the one with the nice silver.
When it comes to fishing on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, "high density" is the nice way to put it, though the more common term for the shoulder-to-shoulder fishing commonly seen on the Kenai River is "combat fishing." But the name belies an activity that can be more conducive to friendships than fighting. Read the full article on Alaska Dispatch News: http://j.mp/akdsptch-combatfish
There are two red salmon runs on the Russian River -- this is the most popular combat fishing area in Alaska. This video shows the action going after Sockeye and gives some suggestions for fishing.. Fishermen also catch silver salmon (coho), king salmon (chinock), rainbow trout, steal head trout, and arctic char. The best fly is the Russian River fly. No bait or lure allowed. To view other videos produced by Franklin Clay Films. This film was shot in 1994.

My wife and I were very blessed this summer to enjoy a 10 day fishing trip on the Kenai/Russian Rivers in Cooper Landing Alaska. This is the first video of three. We spent five days off and on fishing the Russian River. It is a wonderful river to fish and easily accessible. The second run of Sockeye Salmon was late, but we were able to keep a few holdovers from the first run and some early arrivals. Trout and Dolly Varden are C&R only. We lost just as many as we netted and we were told that mid-July was the hardest time to catch trout. Great time!
Alaska's Russian River on the Kenai Peninsula has two distinct sockeye salmon runs each season. The first has a timing range from late May to mid-July with the second run arriving in July and August. It is this first run that draws so much attention and anticipation because its one of the earliest sockeye runs nearest Alaska's largest population area, the Anchorage Bowl and Matsu Valley. The season opening time & date is 0001 JUNE 11th each year and with Alaska's long daylight hours there will be hundreds of anglers along the Russian River and the Kenai River Confluence Zone trying to get their first 3 fish limit of the season. The Dept. of Fish & Game conducted a walk along the stream fish count survey on Monday and Thursday to confirm there were approximately 500 reds in the closed ...
Fishing for red (sockeye salmon) on the Kenai River near the confluence with the Russian River in Alaska. There are a lot of Grizzly Bears wandering the banks in search of fish. When the bears arrive, you pack up your gear, including your fish, and get out of the way. Well one guy didn't take his fish with him when he fled the bank. I am sure you can guess what happened next.
