Kenai River Clean-Up... September 7
The Alaska Fly Fishers Annual Kenai River Clean-Up is this coming Saturday. We clean both the river and the highway and usually collect a few dumpsters full of trash. The cleaning starts early and runs until about 5PM when we will serve burgers, hot dogs, chili, and lots more. Breakfast will be served for those arriving early Saturday, or spending tomorrow night there.
Saturday evening there will be live music and a free raffle for trash pickers.
Most local fishing related businesses have been supporting us for years and the raffle prizes run from modest to pretty snazzy! Among the prizes will be free guided float trips on the Kenai with various guides, stays at B&Bs, and all sorts of neat fishing stuff...
Wal-Mart provided the majority of the food funding this year. Conoco-Phillips supplies a monster tent and grill each year. A local sawmill provides all the firewood and the Russian River Ferry grounds supplies a comfortable place to camp and assemble.
