Wow what a summer! The Kenai River opened to bait on June 1st and we found ourselves catching limits of Kings by the second week! The Kasilof was still producing good numbers of Kings, but we fished the Kenai most of the month of June. The limit for Kasilof Kings is now 2 fish per day. Dave Childs landed the biggest Kenai King of the season on June 22nd. We released the 54 hog and estimated this lunkers weight to be 68 lbs! We also had some spectacular Rainbow Trout fishing after the season opener on June 11th. Our June was great fun with Kings, Rainbows, Halibut, and Sockeye salmon fly-outs. The Dejager family raved about their chartered flight to Crescent Lake for a shore lunch and Dolly Varden fishing. The Kenai River in July produced a number of 60 pounders, and I even caught my own 50 hog on a Sunday. Fishing was so good that I, myself, and our guides, Terry, Dave, and Big Jim fished non-stop on every Sunday. I think we even skipped church once or twice&yikes!

Boats were catching silver salmon in the last few days of July, and on August 1st we were catching limits! We have had consistent catches of silvers all through August. Around the 15th the pink salmon army arrived to provide even more action. Rainbow Trout fishing has been producing 60-70 fish per boat and that will continue to increase. Our Chef, Jason, has amazed us with his meals, and knocked our socks off with his desserts. I love the chocolate truffle cake! I think most of you like to eat great food more than you like to catch big fish. I guess I am too much of a fishing fanatic.

Nicole did a wonderful job of orchestrating everything at the lodge this summer, and we are blessed to have her. See Nicoles Double video on the website! What a great team!

More great news&our water system is now working perfectly. After four years and many system changes, the water at the lodge is finally crystal clear as of August 22nd.

Praise the Lord! Thank you all so much for your support over the years. Visit us at www.JimmieJackFishing.com to see the videos and photos we took this summer.
