Kasilof River Coho Salmon,
AUGUST 1 to OCTOBER 30
Coho (also known as silver salmon) is an anadromous species and one of the 5 pacific salmon. Coho salmon are by far my favorite salmon to catch. In addition to them being great table fare, they are a blast to catch on both fly and spin gear. Ranging anywhere from 5-20lbs, coho are acrobatic and are probably the most aggressive salmon out there. We usually start seeing coho in catchable numbers early to mid August and ends in October.
Kasilof River is located about 15 miles south of Soldotna. This river is a drift boat fishery, and we’ll know for its beautiful scenery. It is very important to be prepared for an early morning, but most importantly be flexible. We will go over boat launch location, start time, and any new regulations a day or two before the trip.

If you plan on taking fish home, be sure to have a cooler in your car. For purchasing ice, there is a gas station nearby, and I will direct you to one of the many fish processors. Here is a link to the available fish processors to get an idea on pricing.
