Kenai Lake Fishing Trip

So, we took the boat out on Kenai Lake today and survived. The original plan was to go to Kachemak Bay to fish for halibut, but the waters were too rough for fishing comfortably, so we decided to head up a little ways to Kenai Lake for a little pike/rainbow trout fishing. The fishing of course was the last priority on the list, behind shooting, drinking beer, building fires, cooking food, and drinking beer. The lake itself was beautiful, with a blue hue to the water that only comes from a pure glacial stream. We also hiked a ways up a hill to a cool looking waterfall, which proved to be much more difficult than I anticipated. My new hip waders came in very handy for all the boat launching and docking, not to mention the fact that they make me look like a sexual tyrannosaurus. Scott's hip waders would've been a lot better if he hadn't fell in the lake and rendered them completely irrelevant. What an idiot. It was a great way to spend a day and I'm glad to have had yet another Alaskan adventure and lived to tell about it.

I had to chuckle at the first picture right after the title... It made me think you were going fishing in the grand tradition of the South.

It's 90+ degrees here, and you're wearing a coat! That's awesome! Glad you had a good time and managed to return alive despite all the shooting and beer drinking!
