drifting and drift techniques

Recommended Posts

I also do a lot of drift fishing especially on rivers like the naknek and Kvichiak for big bows. I generally find a good straight away gravel bar (salmon will spawn on gravel mostly) and kill the motor and just drift. Most of the spots i fish are on the naknek and are very wide (200-400yards) so i don't even need to attend the motor or oars, but if you are fishing smaller waters always have someone controlling the boat. I usually just drift and egg pattern or flesh fly the whole run.

 

By the way do you live in the canada or alaska part of the yukon?

Hi

I float the Bow river, I like to work the banks casting your streamer to shore and working the small pockets and riffles with nymphs and watching for rising trout.The big Rainbows and browns like the banks. I use a 16 foot drift boat so i am on the oars most off the time.
