Today I fished for Kenai river sockeye salmon again, during the fast paced Alaska fishing season there are weeks when I don’t fish the same place twice. As I found yesterday the fish were in lower numbers but passing through in more consistent waves in the morning. By mid day it almost seemed to be over. The group I fished today did manage to get all their fish. I would say in 5 more days they will be easier to come by even though there are plenty of fish in the river to catch. We will see in the morning If the fish cooperate again! Reds aren’t the same as a big king salmon but they do make for an exciting day of fishing on the Kenai river and make an excellent dinner.
The king salmon report is slow but when and if numbers improve we will be chasing them as well soon.
Tight lines and if you are in the area and would like to try your luck on a gravel bar this season for some hard fighting sockeye salmon check out our sight at www.driftingonthefly.com for more information on how to line up your fishing trip.
