Kenai Salmon Fishing Trips

One of the most often asked questions we here is “When is the best time to fish for salmon on the Kenai river?” Understandably, this question is foremost in the minds of everyone planning a fishing trip to the renowned Kenai river each year.

We will try to answer this question here as well as the question “What can you expect when fishing the Kenai river for King Salmon”.

We will start by telling you there are two runs of Kenai Kings and two runs of Sockeye Salmon in the Kenai each year. The first run of Kenai King Salmon begins to really show well between the 10th and 20th of May and continues right into the second run which begins to arrive around the last week of June with the major arrivals occurring somewhere in the final weeks of July.

The earliest king caught on record was on April 24th, though I believe there has been kings caught before that date but just not recorded. And don't forget the World Record King Salmon was caught in May right here on the Kenai River.

For Alaskans, the long dark winter has finally passed and we're all looking forward to another summer of heart poundin', reel rippin', tackle bustin' fun that makes up the real reason we have chosen to live our lives in the land of plenty.
