    Default What is happening on the Kasilof?

    http://peninsulaclarion.com/news/201...ose-for-summer

    Too bad they are closing the Trujillo launch. Won't even let a private contractor run it. That's gonna cramp the style of a lot of local business operations and private fishermen. Are we still building a Wal-Mart sized parking lot at the mouth this summer?

    Oops, it was early. Should not have called it a launch. Trujillo pull-out. I've always been bad about that....

    No Trujillo's is on the north shore at Eds Kasilof seafood off of K beach.
    It is a driftboat pullout only.
    The Trujillo family owns(owned?) it hence the name.
    Coho cove was on the south shore off of north coho loop had a campground and concrete ramp.

    last word I got was a private party bought it and it has been closed ever since.
    That's really all I know. Seems like it was a nice place and fairly popular.
    They did need to repair their ramp but people still used it.
    My guess is somebody wealthy bought it to have their own private fishing area.
    Just checked the Boroughs website.
    It's showing private ownership and the the owner as Michael J faust whomever that is.

    back in the 80s, we would fish from the bank/wade at Coho Cove and it wasn't unusual or difficult to catch 4-5 kings per tide. Literally the good ol days.

    whrn Trujillo closed to everyone except a handful of people a few years ago plenty of people still fished and pulled-out at Kasilof cabins further down. Besides you can just wade fish at crooked creek park that's as good as anywhere on the river tons of kings lay right there all season long before they swim up crooked creek. We would really be enjoying that spot if less boats drifted the river but I doubt if I will even be able to notice the landing is closed based on boats seen. I do not think it will make a difference it did not last time it was closed, especially with the Kenai closed. When that new ramp opens there will be more boats and I will notice. I hope it takes 5 or 10 years to build that ramp.

    Well I for one hope they get it done as soon as possible.
    Years ago(15+) I fished the people's hole at Crooked creek several times a year.
    I got very tired of the crazy tourist's there.
    I'd be out in my waders with just about everybody else and some tourists without waders standing on shore would start casting pixies past my head and around my legs nearly snagging me.
    I found a deal on a used driftboat for $1500 and have never looked back.
    Since they closed that area to fishing from anchored boats I don't think there are nearly as many bank fishermen and boat encounters.
    I've given the kings there a break the last few years but might just have to give it another try.
    I do enjoy the upper river though. Lots of fun for reds/silvers.
