I'm THINKING about heading to the Kenai, but I live in Wasilla and it's a heck of a drive. I could leave work tomorrow at about 2pm, be home by 3pm, loaded up and on the road by 3:30pm and in Kenai by 7:30pm. It seems that it's a 24 hour fishery right now so we COULD dip net Saturday night and definitely Sunday morning. I'd need to find a cabin or hotel for the family and I, but is it worth it? Part of me says roll the dice and wait to see if Fish Creek opens, but part of me wants to get out of the house this weekend and partake in some of this record breaking fish run.
Is it worth a one night run? With the commercial fishery running on Saturday is it even worth it (I don't fully understand all of the OTF, Commercial fishery, etc terminology)? I don't have a boat, are people doing well from shore? Need some serious advice here and need it quick if I want to get reservations somewhere to stay
As always, thank you in advance for the help!
