King salmon (5/15 - 7/31) are the world's largest, averaging 35 - 60 pounds. Trolling and drifting from power and drift boats in shallow water mean violent strikes with great fights.
Silver salmon (8/1 - 9/31) are an acrobatic species that readily take spinners, spoons and flies with equal abandon. Perfect for catch and release, they are also excellent table fare and combine with our trophy trout in the later season. Casting spinners with spin and baitcasters is the most effective method of targeting these great gamefish.
Countless Sockeye & Pink Salmon
Sockeye Salmon (6/5 - 7/31) may be Alaska's most amazing sportfish. The first run migrates up the Kenai to the Russian, however it's the second run, in July, which our guests get excited about. A great bonus species in July, their eggs and decomposing bodies provide nutrients for the fat rainbows we love in August and September.
Giant Pacific Halibut
Halibut reside in the deep, cold waters off the western and Eastern sides of the the peninsula. Early in the season they are in Cook Inlet, later in Kenai Fjords National Park and Prince William Sounds beautiful waters. The Halibut is a delicious fish, best known for it's culinary, rather than it's fighting qualities. That being said, the large "barn door" specimens of 100+ pounds do put up quite a battle.
