With all of this salmon obsession you might overlook the trout that has always been there, right under your feet. I was among salmon fishermen when I saw rainbows and char in the shallows. They were snatching the eggs and scraps of salmon as people filleted their day's catch. I tied on an orange glo-bug and it got real very quickly. I forgot how much rainbow trout can do for your soul. I was sawed off several times by big, twenty-inch fish that took the fly and made for the Kenai. Most broke my tippet. I landed this 16 inch fish after losing a half dozen. The Rodfather arrives next week to ravage these trout. We're doing an all day float with Kenai Float and Fish out of Cooper Landing.
