Hi everyone well the new year is here and we are excited here at Jim Rusk Fishing for a great season in 2021. The Alaska department of fish and game has just released it’s early run King Salmon predictions for the Kenai River and the forcast is for a good first run of King Salmon on the Kenai River. This is great news as last season the first run King Salmon numbers were poor on the Kenai River luckily we did have a great first run of King Salmon on the Kasilof River. I can’t wait to get back on the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers this spring and do battle with some dime bright hard fighting King Salmon. Also adding to the excitement for the 2021 fishing season is the fact that I am doing a complete upgrade on my Kenai River Willie boat to include new bottom paint, new interior paint, new diamond plate fuel tank, new diamond plate electronics box, new electronics, new Bently river master seats and new Mercury outboards. My boat is virtually going to be brand new I can’t wait! We recently pulled some Sockeye Salmon fillets out of the freezer and did a fresh batch of Smoked Salmon and it turned out great! What a blessing to have this wonderful resource available year round it is so nice to have a healthy supply of Alaska Salmon in the freezer as well as a few cases of homemade canned Salmon in the pantry as well. If you would like to put some wonderful Alaska Salmon in your freezer give us a call and get your dates set this summer for King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon and even Trophy Rainbow Trout it is all happening this summer here in Alaska on the Kenai River and the Kasilof River. Call now to book your days!
