    Question Hows the fishing in Kasilof?

    Hello. Has anybody been to Kasilof recently? I was wondering if people are catching alot of salmon there because im planing on fishing the first weekend of July. Also how is the fishing in Valdez? Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

    Just got back, it was kinda slow, seems like the setnetters were out, I think if we would have stayed 1 more day we could have limited out though, it seems like the reds were a little bigger this year, could be because it was the early run, we were on the south side

    I'm going thursday night to catch the early tide friday morning around 4am. South shore. Big tides then.

    Been watching the commericial news releases. They've been letting the boys out all week. Good for them because its their livelihood. Just hoping they will have a night time restriction for navigation collision hazard like last year. Been my experience when the set and drift netters take a break the fish shoot up the mouth. I've slaughtered fish at 3am with a resting boat just a few yards from me.

    Robb, did you catch anything? if so, what was your hours per fish ratio?

    Default Tally

    Dad caught 1, my brother in law caught 1; Dad's rig got stuck... ended up using a fellow angler to pull out and went then off to the house.

    The truck just had the check clear for the last payment (an 06 Highlander Hybrid) - Electric power only in low speeds, didn't have the gumption for the sand . Dipped for a very short time and my brother-in-law's net completely fell apart so the trip pretty well ended there.

    We got out, Dad was miffed and so the trip ended up a bit short. I did see some southies catching some and a few on the north side but it wasn't stellar by any means.

    Wasn't that traumatizing, more inconvenient than anything else. I'd like to try again but I think I'll hold out for the Kenai; bigger and tastier fish IMO. Not only that, it just seems like more fun on the Kenai.
