Kasilof King Salmon Fishing
Ready For Your King Fishing Chater?
Kasilof King fishing takes place just 11 miles from the Kenai River. While Kasilof Kings are normally smaller than their Kenai cousins, they’re typically easier to catch. It’s not uncommon to have fast action fishing.

Alaska's Kasilof King Salmon are ready to fight
The majority of our King Salmon fishing on the Kasilof River takes place during the first run in May and June. During this time, we have wild fish and a large number of hatchery fish entering the river. The Kasilof River water levels are fairly low in these first months and the Kings are abundant, running between 10 and 20 pounds each; always great fighters!
In July, the Kasilof has a second run of entirely wild Kings. This batch more closely resemble the Kenai Kings in size. The river also flows much heavier than it does in the first run, which makes landing these big Kings a challenge for sure.
In all, the Kasilof is a great river to fish Kings on and I highly recommend spending a day or two on it. Let’s go drift the Kasilof together this summer in Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula!
