Where does the time go. One day the sockeye are chrome and going on the stringer. Then suddenly they are red, spawning and sparking the yearly trout feeding frenzy we love.

We love watching the rainbows get fat.
Denny Crum on his yearly mission to exercise as many Kenai River Rainbows as possible.
After another fantastic day on the water, its nice to relive the memories with some tasty Alaska Beer.

We love fly fishing and we love sharing the Kenai River with our fly fishing guests.
Some of our guests had their best days ever.
Some of our guests returned to load up on Sockeye.
July always goes so fast. Now we look forward to the best trout fishing with a side of Silver Salmon.

Mike and Courtney Yanovitch with a perfect sockeye lift.
Andres managed to save this one from an aggressive bald eagle. A previous fish was not so lucky.
Anna Grace Shirley showing off a beautiful early summer bow. Oh yeah, she's 12. Way to go girl.

The Carl and Maria Anderson crew got after it. A three generation family trip to Alaska and the Kenai River produced this stringer full of chromer sockeye salmon. It does not get much better.
Thanks for visiting Mystic Waters!

Salmon season is in full swing. Russian River bound sockeye otherwise known as "Reds" have been running the Kenai on their upstream migration. Some end up providing fantastic table fare for our guests. #salmonaredelicious
We still make time most days for some trout fishing. As we move into July, trout will become the focus for a couple weeks as we wait for the next round of Sockeye.
Summertime in Alaska and around Cooper Landing in particular is pretty awesome.

The solstice always creeps up and flies by. We wait for the days to get longer and relish the added time as they do. Then just as summer seems to be starting with so many great days to come, the days are getting shorter again. Well, at least there are several great months ahead to enjoy.
So far, 2018 fly fishing on the Kenai River is off to a great start.
