    Check the regs at the ADF&G website

    It should be May 1 to about June 11. I think it was the 11th last year. The regs are out at the Sportsman's Show in April, mid-April I think.

    Hope that helps.

    It closes to all fishing above the Killey river (I think, maybe the Moose) in flowing waters and within something like 200 yards of all inlet streams to lakes after May 1 (May 1 might be open, I forget the exact wording)
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    The lower end of the closure is the Upper Killey. ADF&G have the new regs already.

    I am not against the flippin kenai, since I cannot but suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering every other stream... ~Paul O'Neil~/~Wyo2AK~

    The Kenai (and upper river tribs) are open June 11 through May 1.

    You can fish May 1 and June 11.

    No fishing May 2 through June 10.

    That's how it's been... I'd assume when the new regs come out this month it'll be the same.
