Fishing the Kenai River For Trophy Sized Fish
The Kenai River is known the world over as the river for sports fishermen. These fish-rich waters are teaming with life. The largest fish is the King Salmon which begins its spawning run in May and peaks during the June and July. Average King Salmon weights range from 35-45 pounds. The Silver Salmon begin in mid-July and peak during August and into September. The Silvers are probably the favorite species of sports fish simply for the tenacity and fight. The Kenai is also home to large Rainbow Trout. The trout follow the salmon in hopes of feasting on salmon roe.
Saltwater Fishing for Pacific Halibut
May through September is the best time to sports fish for Halibut. Halibut charters leave from Ninilchik and Homer. Homer is the halibut capital of the world. A good sized Halibut is 50 pounds. By local terms, that is referred to as a "Chicken" an even better catch is what the locals refer to as a "barn door." That is a halibut that weighs over 100 pounds. While that might seem massive, these flat fish can reach weights of over 1000 pounds. The record for Alaska sports fishermen is 495 pounds. That is a lot of fish. A 200 pound Halibut is as tall as a man and wider. Imagine trying to fight and land a monster that was larger than you are. That, my friend, is why they call this sports fishing!
