February Meeting – George Krumm – Naknek Fall Rainbows
February 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
George Krumm is the editor of both Fish Alaska and Hunt Alaska and writes the Stillwater Fly Fishing column in Fish Alaska. He has wandered and fished all over Alaska and is a great resource. He presented to the club last February on Alaska’s trophy stillwater fishing. We welcome him back this year to present “Naknek Fall Rainbows”.
George fishes the Naknek River every fall for its giant rainbows on swung flies with two handed rods. The Naknek likely produces more rainbow trout in excess of 30 inches than any other place in North America. George has landed at least one rainbow over 30 inches on the Naknek in each of the last five years. Though huge rainbows are possible at any time on the Naknek, fall is thought by many, including George, to be the best time. In this presentation, George will discuss the fishery, equipment, flies, methods and logistics to help prepare you for your own Naknek giant rainbow adventure.
