    Default Kenai Silvers

    What spot would provide me the best chance to catch some silvers this weekend on the Kenai? I know the Eagle Rock area had some earlier but wasn't sure if they are still there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    New fish are moving thru the tidewater corridor every day. The larger late run fish should be moving in any time now.

    Try Cunningham and Eagle Rock both. Centennial also has wide open bank access further upriver. Pitch Pixees or Vibrax/Mepps spinners with a single siwash.

    I might be a little late but there were quite a few silvers moving through the swiftwater park area. You would see 200 pinks to every silver but they are there. Like the doc said the late fish are in. I lost two hogs. One was atleast 15 lbs. good luck

    My girlfriend and I caught two silvers fishing in the evenings from Centennial park just down from the the boat launch. The trick is to get your spinner close to the bottom without catching a pink. Cunningham Park is a good place to plunk eggs.

    Well I tried Centennial Park in Soldotna and caught pinks until my arms were tired. It was hard to keep from catching a pink on every cast. I did manage to hook a silver but couldn't get him in. Oh well, the pinks were fun and no rain so I can't complain much.

    Sounds fun...maybe should have taken the extra hour of driving to battle pinks to try and get a couple silvers.

    Ended up at Quartz for dollies and bows. They were in there spread amongst the spawning reds. Saw one monster rainbow but it wasn't interested in being caught.

    Stopped at bird on the way back just for observation and saw a whole lot of nothing going on...bear tracks in the mud right next to the obs bridge but no living fish to be seen (only 1/2 dozen people fishing).

    Default Best silver fishing in over 10 years!

    Thought I'd share some of the pics of my family and friends from the first 9 days of August. These were previously posted on the OR board called Ifish.net

    Just got a report from a buddy of mine. He is wacking a few big silvers down low. Eggs and kwikfish are the way to go. Good luck.

    Anyone heard anything about the russian/kenai confluence? A buddy told me Silvers should be in pretty good down there.
