I've kind of seen this question before but am not clear on the answer. Tomorrow I get my first boat, a 24 foot silverstreak river boat. This is also my first summer in Alaska so I have a million questions and few answers. Nevertheless, I am planning on using it in the rivers and on Cook Inlet. I live in Soldotna and it is very, very convenient to launch at the Kenai docks. I know that halibut fishing is world class in Homer, Deep Creek, Anchor Point etc. I also know that halibut like to live at the mouth of rivers that flush salmon down. So my question is why don't people fish for halibut off the mouth of the Kenai? Exactly how far south do I have to go to be in good halibut waters? Is there a reason why they are world class fishery in Deep Creek but there are apparently none at Kenai? I'm not sure if it would be more economical to drive down south and pay a launch fee or launch in the Kenai and boat down while fishing. Any ideas?
