With the Kenai still frozen it is hard to believe we are less than two months away from hitting the river in search of first run salmon. Don’t forget to book your charters now, winter is on its way out.
The Kasilof River is a tidal influenced, glacial fed river just south of Kenai. It is a drift boat only river and a hatchery enhanced fishery. Over the last several years the Kasilof has started to out shine the Kenai in June. It offers abundant wildlife, less fishing pressure, and some excellent tidewater fishing.
And unlike the Kenai, you may return to catch and release fishing after taking your bag limit. And some days is even open to double limits.
From now until April 15, 2012 we will be offering a 15% discount off of our June and August 2012 salmon/halibut packages.
