Kenai River Pink Salmon Fishing

pink salmonPink salmon return to the Kenai River on even years only and the total run numbers several million fish.  This mass of aggressive, hard fighting salmon moves into the lower Kenai in literal waves and catching an ocean bright salmon on every cast becomes an instant reality.  Pink salmon average 5-8 lb. with the males displaying a huge hump on the upper back, thus they are also know as “humpies.”  Pink salmon seem to be more aggressive than any other salmon and will readily bite a variety of lures both casting and back-trolling.  These are perfect fish for children as they are present in huge numbers and action is always one after another.  Again, only arriving in these numbers on even years, the best dates to target pink salmon are Aug 5-25.
