    Default Kenai kings... sonar and non-sonar indices

    Anyone who loves the Kenai and her iconic population of king salmon needs to click on this link.

    The Dual frequency IDentification SONar (DIDSON) is a remarkable tool for actually seeing the fish swimming in the river's turbid flows. Check out the real-time DIDSON vids at the end of the page.... all four are pretty cool.

    Too bad the Didson doesn't have a longer beam for big rivers like the Nushugak and Kenai.. I am here to tell you that you CAN NOT tell the difference between Kings, Chums, and Sockeye all of the same size on rivers like the Nushugak River. The species appreciation still must be done by actively catching the fish by tangle net.
