2017 Still Going... Ready For 2018!!

While we wind down here at Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC for the 2017 season, we are super thankful for the awesome year we've had! I had a chance to fish with my brother Dom, Jackie and Dom's friend Joe over the past few days. What a great way to spend some time on the water! With just a few trips remaining in the 2017 books, we are eager to regroup and get pumped for 2018!

Action was a little slow today... but...

Had a chance to get out on the water today with Jackie, my brother, his friend Joe and James... and although it was spotty, there were times when not a cloud could be seen and it was a welcome relief from all the rain we've had this season!

We managed to land some dollies, a silver and several rainbows. One topping out in the 24" range. 

There's still plenty of great fishing to be had on the Kenai River!

Time sure flies around here!

You blink around here and summer is gone! Our first season has been nothing short of amazing!  From awesome guests, to great fishing, to overcoming a lot of obstacles. We certainly couldn't be happier with our new adventure!

Right now we are continuing to offer trips through the remainder of the 2017 season and look forward to 2018. Look for announcements coming soon for our youth fly fishing offerings as well as new locations and opportunities!

A huge thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement!

OUR FIRST SEASON IS UNDERWAY!

It's hard to believe, but June is almost over! We've been operating guided fishing trips since early May and couldn't be happier with the great experiences we've had so far! 

Right now, we are offering a mixture of fishing opportunities on the Upper Kenai River and Kasilof rivers for trout and salmon. The first run of Chinook on the Kasilof seem to be just about over, but the sockeye are pouring in and the trout fishing is picking up on the Upper Kenai.

Today will be one of our first trips targeting Chinooks on the swung fly and we couldn't be more excited to see what the day brings!

"..In light of everything we’d learned in this process — the inefficiencies of the Railbelt utilities, the bottlenecks and things like that, and the way this project came about with not a lot of background research — it raised a lot of concerns with us about how it was produced and presented to the public,” Lisi said. “… Our overall goal is to bring people from a lot of different groups and organizations together to rally behind these sorts of things and hopefully put a stop to them earlier.”
