    Default Here they come.... K/K sockeye storming upriver

    Kenai and Kasilof both got a decent push of reds y'day, 14.4K and 7.3K respectively.

    Strong S and SW winds are predicted for the next 3-4 days with a big runoff of Kenai water with the strong mid-morning ebb.

    Settin' up to put a strong olfactory plume of Kenai water tight to the beach to lure the sockeye ashore for a major push in river.

    It is time. Who's ready?

    Ebb = outgoing tide.

    The strong outgoing tide will immediately drag the outflow from the Kenai south. S and SW winds tend to keep that plume of Kenai river water and its "scent trail" tight to the beach. This in turn draws sockeye to the beach like a magnet.

    That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

    Fished kenai today at our spot below bings and hooked into a few. Lots of females and not much males. Hooked into a obvious silver and she didnt like it. Some good fish in there just a bit slow

    Where do these Reds go? They're not heading to the Russian, right? So they just pile up to the lake?

    The majority are going to Kenai Lake.

    Fished Centennial today near the boat launch. Not a single sockeye caught from about 10-3. Probably just bad timing. I was wondering if the tide makes a difference when fishing that far from the mouth.

    If you can put off your king trip I would.
    River is above average flow but is slowly coming down.
