The season opened August 1st with what sounds like pretty solid fishing! I’ll be joining the party early this next week.. I’ll be looking forward to spinning some anchovies and herring using my North Fork Custom Rods, Short Bus Flashers And Trinidad Tackle anchovy helmets.. I generally focus most my effort inside the Columbia river.

It’s been some time since I fished silvers in the kenai river, but the my schedule allowed.. started off tiny bit slow then we got it going with a double. Sea-lice fresh silver salmon.. we boated 4 in a about 30 minutes Along with 3 large kings. We stuck it out through the tide for one more silver before calling it a day.. we had a ton of fish on with a couple lost on the way to the boat!
Well the last day has come and gone a season of highs and lows for sure.. we scratched out a few nice kings today with the high light being a beautiful 40×30 hen. Brian fished hard and put in his time for this beautiful fish of a life time..
The Kasilof river had a very little pressure today with just a few boats taking part in the last Monday of King salmon season. The water was as high as I’ve ever fished it and and a bit cloudy, we fished hard starting in the dark and did manage a few hook ups!! We netted and released a beautiful king salmon around 20 pounds!
On the last Saturday of the kenai king salmon season fishing for kings was slow.. we should be at the peak of our season with limits the norm but that’s not the case this year thanks adfg. We did have nice bright side with serval fat silvers hitting the net and tons of pinks. Action is near never ending with multiple doubles and a triple.
Had a awesome day fishing on the kenai river, I had a great family from Colorado on the their first fishing trip to Alaska! We started out chasing kings and it was a a bit of a grind, we saw only a hand full of kings hooked up in the first couple hours. I decided to changed it up and let Cody and MO fight some fish we where on the hunt for pink salmon! MO fought and landed her first fish whoop whoop! After quite a few fish on and off Cody hooked a rather large king that ran off 75 feet of line thrashing on top the water before throwing the hook.. Darn!! MO asked if we could go back to the spot we caught all the fish, so down river we went! With about 35 minutes to go In our day Mrs McDonald hit pay dirt with a beautiful kenai river king salmon on ultra light gear. A great time was had by all!
Man the day started of with a bang! First 5 minutes we hang a beautiful mid 30 pound king and I thought I was picking up right where we finished yesterday! But the kenai can humble even the most confident anglers. Over the next 7 hours we managed to land and box a nice sockeye and release about a half dozen tide water pinks. We lost a few other fish including at least one dandy silver that I would have loved filet.. maybe tomorrow!
Well today started off strong and finished just as strong.. our first pass had us hooking up 4 times in less then a half hour, with one monster that pulled about 200 feet strait up river before turning and throwing the hook! Dang!!! We continued with solid hook ups through out the morning. About lunch time we hit a little lull, we decided to changed our gear a little bit and moved down to tide water, what a great decision. We landed 3 more sea lice fresh Kings and a half dozen ocean bright pink salmon and to go with them. All in all a fantastic day with 20+ take downs. Great kenai River action..
Well Super Tuesday was super Wet! But king fishing was decent with 8 hook ups today and some nice kings landed!q
