Thread: Kenai sonar to bings

  1. #1

    Default Kenai sonar to bings

    I know there are lots of variables but is there an approximate time line for salmon travel from sonar to bings?

    It's only 20 river miles. Should be 2-3 days.

    2mph seems fast. Those fish stop in the frog water to rest when they get a chance - is this 2mph taking that into consideration?

    Fish and game says it takes 24-72 hours to travel the 19mi to the sonar. Extrapolate off that

    Thanks for your replies. I made a last minute drive to bings landing Saturday night and fished from 6 am to 130 pm Sunday. Fishing was steady to good in my opinion. I'm a bit rusty on fly fishing and I must have hooked at least 15 times landing 3 for my limit.

    Hooking 15 fish in 7 hours is poor fishing for me

    Well like I said I'm rusty and people around me were doing much much better than me

    Frog water. Every place where you saw more than 1 sockeye surfacing over the weekend - LOL - both places!

    Below every island. At the tailout of every long run. Holding places that the sockeye rest in.

    There is quite the difference (as suspected) between 19 miles in 24 hours and 19 miles in 72 hours. All much less than 2mph. .7916666mph down to .263888888mph. If they were going 2mph they would make it in 9.5 hours up to the sonar.
