Kenai, Kasilof, Tustumena Lake, the areas of Kenai Peninsula Borough achieved universal acclaim with Mr. Lester Anderson and his 1985 catch of a record King salmon. And overnight, professional anglers, regulars and beginning anglers have started almost regularly for fishing expeditions in Alaskan waters to test their luck for similar prizes.
To this day, the Kenai River remains a salmon hotspot. Particularly in the western Kenai peninsula and also the Tustumena Lake where swarms of salmon, Kings and Silvers often migrate to these open water sheds to spawn. Fishing is especially good on certain seasons so it’s highly improbable that anyone would return empty-handed. Knowing when the salmon run would not hurt, especially when returning with a heavier wicker basket than the peer.
Do you know when you should arrange a Kenai or Kasilof salmon fishing? Here’s the data regarding fishing success over Kenai and Kasilof areas. Study these facts before arranging your Kasilof salmon fishing.
