Thread: Three dayer on the Kenai

  1. #1

    Default Three dayer on the Kenai

    Headed down on the Kenai this Friday and wondering if the silvers are in the lower Kenai or if there are still any reds to be found. May even head down to homer to fish for a few halibit. Any advice or good charters in homer.
    Thanks Big

    The nets are still in the inlet so the silvers are having to claw their way to the Kenai, been rough water all week so not much Halibut fishing. The nets should come out on Aug. 15th so the silvers will have a free run to the river, good luck.

    Gerberman,

    Thanks for the input! Went down in mid July and had a great time fishing for reds. Limited out in about 25 minutes.
    Thanks again.....Big

    There are still lots and lots of reds in the river. The silvers don't have any claws and the nets hardly make a noticable difference to the fish in the river anyway (that's just an old guide's-tale excuse). It's still early for big silver numbers, but there are some. Just come on down and go fishing!

    Correction: the nets DO make a noticeable difference in the early silver fishery. This being one of the several reasons for the "1%" rule.

    Agree with JOAT, just go fishing regardless!
    As for a halibut charter, check out Captain Pete in Homer; he has a 31' Chris Craft named Julia Lynn; fished with him once in March, twice in the last few weeks; did very well and Pete's an outstanding guy and deckhand Jonna is cute as a button and a great deckhand. Strongly recommended!
