“How do YOU plan to celebrate National Fishing & Boating Week?”

TakeMeFishing.org – National Fishing & Boating Week

National Fishing & Boating Week is coming up.  What will you be doing June 4th thru 12th?  For a guide on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, what a week to look forward to!   June 11th is opening day for most rivers and streams on the peninsula necessitating a good deal of preparation ahead of a full season.  Hours at the tying bench for nymphs, streamers, dries, painting eggs, tying leaders.  But not to worry, there will be plenty of time to get the gear wet.  As I'll be wading most of the season with clients there's a lot of water to walk before the season. 

The Russian River is loaded with dolly varden and 'bows in August
To all those looking forward to spring: take full advantage of your states free fishing days.  Get your family on the water in early June.  The only thing standing in front of the next great fisher may be a day on the water.

Stay tuned to P:T for notes on my drive from LA to Anchorage, early season photos of Alaska's trout and salmon, along with outing reports, trophy fish and wildlife photos

his is my National Fishing and Boating Week contest entry sponsored by Take Me Fishing and the Outdoor Blogger Network.
