Sockeye salmon fishing in the afternoon can be very productive on the Kenai river. The peak season to fish for sockeye salmon is about July 12th through August 10th most years. Ocean run fish have there own schedule though and these dates can very on either or both ends by a few days. Good sockeye salmon fishing can be accessed in many areas that you can walk into but this is a very popular time of year and these areas can be very congested. This is probably the best reason for hiring Drifting on the Fly for a day trip. We will do our best to find you a productive gravel bar that is not as busy as some of the road side accessible spots. Though there still might be people around it shouldn’t be elbow to elbow.
These folks traveled to Alaska from Arkansas to try their luck out on the Kenai river for sockeye salmon and did very well.
The afternoon fishing can be as good as the morning fishing. Usually others have limited out or called it quits. This means we have a good chance at getting on a great gravel bar. Half day afternoon trips are available and the cost is 200.00 dollars plus tax for a half day fishing trip.
