The Kasilof River

The Kasilof River offers some fantastic tidewater fishing coupled with a driftboat-only setting, splendid scenery, abundant wildlife, and through most of the summer, much lighter fishing pressure than the nearby Kenai. In addition, unlike the Kenai, Kasilof King Salmon anglers are allowed to continue to catch-and-release after retaining a King.

The Kasilof River is best known for large quantities of King Salmon. Their sizes vary from 18-35 lbs (first run) to 20-60 lbs (second run). You are likely to produce numerous hook-ups! Sockeye (Red) Salmon beginning in July and running into August, averaging 6-12 lbs.

There is also Coho (Silver) Salmon fishing beginning in August and running through mid September. These cousins of the King Salmon usually average about 9 lbs and will somtimes reach 20 lbs or more!

The Kenai River

Alaska Salmon fishing on the Kenai River is world famous. Alaska's Kenai River produces some of the world's largest Chinook (King) salmon on the planet. Alaskas Kenai River is often referred to as the greatest sport-fishing river in the world. King salmon on the Kenai River average 35-45lbs and it is very common to land salmon exceeding 50-80lbs!

Alaska Sockeye (Red) salmon, are like silver torpedoes and they offer exciting fishing action. Kenai River Sockeye average between 6-12 lbs. Sockeye salmon are most commonly caught from the bank. Over 1 million sockeye salmon return to the Kenai River every summer, and non-stop Alaska Salmon Fishing is often the result.

Alaska sport-fishing for Kenai River silver salmon, is very consistent and limits are common. Kenai river silver salmon average 10-12lbs, with larger fish weighing 15-20lbs.

The Cook Inlet

Halibut average size is 20-50lbs, but can grow as large as 400lbs! Alaska halibut are a bottom feeding migratory fish that will move into the saltwater surrounding the Kenai Peninsula in April and will stay until October. Depending on underwater terrain the Alaska halibut can be found in water from 50-500 feet deep.

Generally speaking Alaska halibut are caught on heavy duty but limber rods with small pulleys as guides, and heavy duty level wind reels with 60- 120 lb test lines are common.

Baits are usually herring, octopus or salmon belly although jigs in the hands of an experienced angler can produce excellent results. If you're able to take a trip to Alaska and experience Cook Inlet halibut fishing, you will have the thrill of a lifetime!
