July is here and so are the big king salmon that migrate up the river this time of year. The fishing has been a little slow, especially when the commercial nets are fishing. But when we are free of commercial fishing pressure, there seems to be a good number of salmon coming into the river. As the month goes on it should only get better. The Kasilof king salmon season ends July 31st; the limit is one fish per day (3 a year)
Fishing is not over at the end of July, actually far from it. The first week of August is slow as the kings ramp down and slivers ramp up. However, as we get into the second week we start to see our sliver salmon (aka coho) start their migration up the Kasilof. This is a great time of year. Silvers offer some of the best action of any salmon in Alaska. The limit is two per day with no annual limit, unlike King Salmon.
Don’t chance your once-in-a-life-time trip to a big outfit where you may get subcontracted to a guide who has been on the river a short time. I have been guiding on the Kasilof over a decade, and I personally do all of my trips. Give me a call, talk to me, and I think you will see that you will be in good hands for your next Alaska salmon adventure.
We are located on the road system and easy to get to. We have private and safe parking and a private launch where most of our trips start. We can also help you with lodging and recommendations for other adventures you are looking to do.
Call or text (315-529-4204) and step on board for a great Alaska experience.
