At Reel Action Alaska we absolutely love mousing for rainbows! The Kanektok River is just one big playground for leopard rainbows and mice are like their toys. They are so programmed into eating mice that many times they prefer a mouse fly over anything else cast to them. There’s not many places in the world that trout are this aggressive to mouse flies and what’s amazing is everything from salmon to trout to char to even grayling have been caught on mouse patterns – a truly amazing fishery! The takes are unexplainable unless experienced in person. To have a big rainbow charge your mouse pattern on the top water leaving a huge splash and wake – the feeling can’t be beat! If you want to focus on dry fly action for trout come in mid July – this is before the egg drop and our leopard rainbows, arctic char, and dolly varden are very keyed in on mice and lemmings. Check out some of our mousing pictures below!

Good solid runs, jumps, and many death rolls will leave you saying – wow is this a chum or silver? Chums on the Kanektok are power packed fighters and since we are fishing for them only a mile from tide water, it’s like no other chum you’ve seen before. These chrome bright fighting machines have left many speechless when their rods are fully bent and drag is peeling out. Chums can be taken on a variety of different techniques including using mouse patterns for some awesome top water action! Point blank – chums are fun, aggressive to the fly, and are a great sport fish to catch. The end of June and the entire month of July are a great time to fish for chums along with, king salmon, leopard rainbows, dolly varden, and arctic char.
