Kenai River Pink Salmon,
Early August-End of August
On the Kenai River, pink salmon enter in catchable numbers on the even years. Pinks are completely underrated, they are extremely aggressive to catch and come in by the millions! Ranging from 2-12lbs Pink Salmon are great fish for kids to catch, and when fresh can be a decent table fare! If you’re looking for nonstop action, pink salmon should be on your radar! Pink salmon limits are typically 6 per person and limits can be very easy to obtain.
If the plan is to fish for pink salmon, then we will be fishing from Skilak Lake down. With access to about 50 miles of fishable water, it’s important to be flexible to what boat launch we will be launching from. We will go over boat launch location, start time, and any new regulations a day or two before the trip. I will provide detailed maps to what boat launch I’ve decided on. When you arrive to the boat ramp I will be in the water getting gear ready. You can find me by walking down the ramp and asking for Ian McDonald.
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.
