One of our favorite things about fishing for Alaskan trout is the ability to target them using a whole bunch of exciting methods, not the least of which is with mouse patterns!
It’s no secret that rainbow trout in the 49th state have an affinity for rodents (sorry, Mickey), and our population of rainobw trout on the Kulik River are no exception. In fact, although we typically see peak mousing for trout during the month of July, its not uncommon to catch trout on mouse flies during each month of our season.
Our good friends from Alaska Fly Out recently put together a great video from their time at Kulik to highlight what mouse fishing for trout is all about. The best part? It wasn’t necessarily filmed during what we consider ‘prime’ mousing time..
Give it a watch below!
Look like a good time? Then drop us a line to come experience it for yourself!
Great video!! The old sport saying. The ‘thrill of victory and the agony of defeat’ sums up throwing the mouse. It is the intense hunt and when the mouse drops in, i am not sure who becomes more excited ..the fish or the mouse.
