Sockeye (Red) Salmon

Amazing Reel Sizzling Action…   Sockeye Salmon or otherwise know as Red Salmon are know for their awesome fights and excellent table fare.  Some believe that Kenai River Sockeye Salmon are the best eating salmon in the world and pound for pound the best fighter.  Each year literally millions of Sockeye Salmon enter the Kenai River.  This makes for some awesome fishing action.  The seasonal migration starts in mid June with the first run shooting straight to the upper Kenai River.  The second run starts the first week in July and last through the whole month of July.   These second run fish stay concentrated in the lower Kenai River and are easy targets on the banks of our resort. 

Our guides will lead you to a stretch of river where you will get out of the boats and fish off the banks. At times it will be close to the resort and at other times the guides will lead their clients into the beautiful Kenai Wildlife Refuge where competition is less.  With a quick roll cast up river, a 3/0 salmon hook seasoned with colored yarn the fireworks begin with an explosion of fish being hooked and lost.  Don’t worry fishing is fast and frantic and the six fish limit is an easy task to complete.  100 fish days are common. 

We also have fly-out fishing charters for Sockeye Salmon.  Enjoy a scenic trip across Cook Inlet aboard a floatplane and fish untouched rivers for Sockeye Salmon.  You will have a few friends around (Brown Bears) but do not worry; they are after the same thing you are, the fish.
