Well it is the end of July here on the Kenai and there are only 2 days left of King Salmon Season. So here is a brief recap of the fishing here on the Kenai River and Kasilof River in July. First the sockeye Salmon run has been nothing short of incredible this season, and we have been enjoying just incredible fishing for the last 10 days and they are still coming in big numbers every day. Also the Kasilof River has also had an enormous run of Sockeye Salmon this year and the fishing there has been amazing as well. Both the Kenai River and the Kasilof River have had daily bag limits for Sockeye Salmon increased from 3 per day to 6 per day because of the large numbers of fish returning!
As for the King Salmon fishing on the Kenai River and Kasilof River the fishing has been bit more challenging, late June and well in to July saw the Kenai Peninsula in the grasp of an extreme heat wave by Alaska standards. With unusually warm temperatures we have had high and dirty water conditions for most of King Salmon season. However in the last week or two temps have returned to normal and the river has steadily improved for both volume and clarity, and although slow we have been catching some very nice King Salmon most days.
Looking forward towards August we are all excited to move into Silver Salmon Season And trophy Rainbow Trout Season anticipation is high it is my favorite time of year lets hope that the Silver Salmon run on the Kenai River and The Kasilof River is ass good as the Sockeye runs. And the Rainbow Trout bite is on fire!
