Kanektok River Fishing
Mouse Fishing Kanektok River Alaska  
In the Fall the Kanektok's voracious rainbows have had a whole summer of feeding to fatten up and fill out, many easily growing to double the size they were in spring, and it is at this time they are truly at their prime. It is our September 10th start date that brings the seriously addicted rainbow angers to Alaska and in particular to  the Kanektok in search of these trophy's. Be it drifting flesh or egg patterns, on top with mouse patterns such as Morrish's Mouse, the Blair Mouse project or other rodent patterns. Toss in unusually large numbers of voracious "WOG"  crushing Coho's, un-countable numbers of  Dollies and other available species, yes the fishing is pretty much off the charts on this near hundred mile float through Fly Fishing heaven!
