Hello Kenai River Anglers, well it is almost mid March here on the Kenai in Alaska and the 2024 fishing season is just a couple months away. Here at Jim Rusk Fishing we will be enjoying our 38th consecutive year guiding anglers on the Kenai River for King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon, Pink Salmon, Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden. I have already been permitted by Alaska state parks for the 2024 fishing season, and before long I’ll start going thru all the fishing gear getting it ready for the 2024 season. With rod and reel setups for all the species, King salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon, and Trout it is a lot of gear to inspect clean replace line and get in perfect order for the upcoming season. Spring is in the air here in Alaska and before long we should start to see the Kenai River beginning to break up ice and start rising with all the snow melt. I Love spring time in Alaska the days are getting longer the sun is out and anticipation is high for another great year of chasing Salmon and trout on the Kenai River and other local waters. My first trip of the year is always for lake Trout and that can happen in April or may depending on when the ice melts off the Lake, I love that trip and it always feels so good to splash the boat for the first time of the season. We have been catching some bigger than average Lake Trout the last couple springs so I’m very excited to see if we can land some big ones this year. Well like I always say if you have not booked your dates yet for the 2024 fishing season in Alaska with Jim Rusk fishing now is the time we still have some great dates open so don’t wait get those dates booked for another exciting fishing season here in Alaska on the Kenai River in 2024.
