    Default most of the parks are ok

    where ever there are alot of people, then the fishing is good. there is a park just up stream of the soldotna bridge that is popular. I usually fish it in a boat so I'm ignorant on where to go bank fishing

    Default Kings from the bank

    Landing big kings from the bank is quite an endeavor. Here are my suggestions:

    You want to use very strong line, such as power pro 100# and have sturdy tackle.

    For the bank, you want to have room to maneuver for when the fish runs... you can chase it. I have seen kings landed from Cunningham state park because it is very open.

    Last year, there was a group of people landing nice kings from College Hole... using heavy rods and braid...I was impressed.

    I have heard of kings being landed at Centennial... again, lots of beach to run. I would stay away from Swiftwater park, as mentioned above; above the bridge, the water is very fast and there's no room on the banks. It is good for sockeye, but probably not for kings.

    Good luck
