Silver Salmon Fishing

August welcomes the Local favorite… two massive Silver Salmon runs in August and September makes this fall season fishery on the Kenai Peninsula a popular time.  Whether fishing the Kenai, Kasilof or Seward’s Resurrection Bay expect acrobatic jumps and reel screaming runs.  These mint bright beauties are on average 10-20 pounds and when the fishing is hot expect limits in hours.  Using light action G-Loomis rods with Shimano reels filled with 17-pound test expect some great fights.  Silver Salmon fishing is simple and relaxing but the catching action is fast and furious. 

Kenai River Silvers… local favorites because of the  relaxing fishing techniques and plentiful bounty.  Our method of fishing on the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers consist of anchoring the boat and back bouncing salmon egg clusters or Kwikfish.  The take down of the rod is by far the most exhilarating part of the battle but don’t set the hook to early, they are know to leave many anglers bait less and scratching their heads in disbelief.  Remember Pink Salmon on even years. 

Seward (Resurrection Bay) Silvers… Everyone loves a double header, two fish on at once, but aboard our 28’ Madeira Offshore Cruises in Seward, Alaska imagine all six anglers aboard with fish on, at the same time.  This is not rare but a daily occurrence.  Mooching cut-plug herring as bait our captains put you in amazing huge schools of Silvers.  With a few cranks up and a fluttering rod tip, FISH ON!  This fishery begins the in August and is becoming a must do by all of our clients.  But the action does not stop.  Ling Cod, Sea Bass, Red Snapper and Halibut are also on the menu.
