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!
