    Default Kenai Peninsula Area Fishing

    Hey everybody!

    I am coming to AK from TX this summer to work at a lodge on the Kenai around cooper's landing and while I will be fishing the Kenai mostly, I would like to fish some other area streams and lakes.

    Can anyone recommend some area waters to fish? or maybe a link with a map of waters/regs?

    Thanks a bunch!

    You might find this link useful:

    It's a complete list of the lakes ADF&G stocks and also gives you info about the lakes and how to get to them.

    Quartz Creek, Russian River, Crescent Lake (hike), Fuller Lake (hike), and many more within an hour or two drive.

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.

    Don't forget the Kasilof (about 15 miles south of Soldotna). It can get some good returns of kings where a 20 to 40 pounder isn't unusual from the bank, and good returns of reds, too. On average days from about the end of June until the beginning of August there are a few thousand reds entering the river each day in a good year. Some days 10,000 and every once in a while a 15,000 to 20,000 day. I love the Kasilof because I've caught and released 3 or 4 kings in a day with about 50 yards of bank on each side of me with no one else fishing next to me. The only problem is, like last year, it wasn't entirely consistent and I always seemed to go up there on a day when the fish count had dropped to a couple of hundred. But hit it on the right day and your arm will get very tired.

    BTW---last year on July 18th ADF&G raised the limit on the Kasilof to 6 per say with a possession limit of 12 because of the return rate.

    Default Try the Kasilof

    The Kasilof is a good spot for kings and reds. You can park and walk right to the river and fish from the bank. If you time it right you'll get lots of action. I'll be there for the 2nd week of June. Good luck!
