    Tuesday morning at 3:45 am. But you have to be at just the "right" place on the river to hit it where I'm talking about.
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine! :whistle:

        Horrible wind pattern next two days... strong N-NE gale to 30 knots.... will NOT be conducive to mass movement of fish to the beach and on up the river. It's predicted to shift SE on Saturday, but what we really need is a sustained pattern of SW wind to drive the BIG push. Looks like we're gonna have to wait til next week for that to happen.

        That's not to say significant spurts of fish aren't making their way upriver. There was a good fishing in the lower river this morning. This one was landed about an hour ago just as the tide started flooding out the drift....

        DINNER!

            My prediction is the big push arrives Tuesday morning and the Comm fishers will use 18 hours straight of their 36 hours to take at least half of the fish coming in. No worries though, there will be a lot of other fish behind them. Hopefully this year isn't a 4 day run like it was last year.

              Looking back at the previous 10 returns, the first major "push" has started anywhere from July 14 to July 22... half occurring before July 16 and half occurring after July 15.

              That push can range from a brief pulse of 3-4 days (2004) all the way to a protracted steady stream of fish for 2 weeks (2006) delivering anywhere from 0.35 to 1.2 million sockeye to the sonar. And that's after a full scale commercial/rec/PU fishery downstream of the counter!

              The productivity of the system is truly something to behold.

                    The big push could start as early as late tonight, but more likely to begin late tomorrow morning. The river should be ALIVE w sockeye by tomorrow afternoon!

                          SW winds and a strong ebb late tonight will direct the plume of Kenai flow tight to the beach... a virtual magnet to draw the fish ashore. Once immersed in all that Kenai water, they commit and just GO GO GO... and nothing will stop them. Unless a fortunate gillnet dipnet or sport line happens to get in the way.

                          If it doesn't happen tonight, we won't have much longer to wait.

                          An even bigger ebb starts at 7am tomorrow, and it's another day deeper into that pattern of sustained SW winds.

                          I would be beyond shocked if reds don't storm the river by tomorrow afternoon. The only thing that could screw it up is if the wind pattern falls apart. Keep your fingers crossed, game time is imminent!

                            Doc correct me if I'm wrong but don't we typically see numbers on the Kasilof high the day before the big push hits the Kenai. Is it because the river is further South or the counter is not so far up? If numbers peak on the Kasilof, I think you would be on the money

                              Fished 10 pm to 12:45 and can say the action for myself and others just kept growing throughout the night now only if I was better at tying up my gear!
