The earliest to arrive of Alaska’s five Pacific salmon, you will find the world’s most unique strain of this king of salmon on the Kenai River. The world record 97 lb. 4 oz. and eight of the top ten rod-and- reel caught Chinook documented were caught in the beautiful turquoise waters of the Kenai.
Kenai king fishing typically begins in mid-May, improving each day, until the early run peaks around the middle of June. The Kasilof River offers king salmon fishing opportunities as well. We highly recommend a guided fishing trip for kings. Whether back bouncing or drifting, your guide will help you learn the best technique they offer and be up to date on current regulations.
