One coming out of the net, another in the works ... Kasilof River Salmon Fishing

Not sure of the best the best time to try your Alaska fishing luck??

This page is intended to help you plan the best time to schedule your Alaska fishing charter / guide trip: the table below represents the historical norms of the timing of salmon returns to Alaska's Kenai Peninsula.

Please see the legend below the table to see when each river offers peak fishing. Most years, the salmon in Alaska return like clockwork, but remember there are many factors that can influence returns of fish and our success ... ranging from oceanic conditions to commercial fishing  (commercial fishing season runs from late June through early August).

For those interested in saltwater species, we also offer a table of Kenai Peninsula clam tides, as well as an overview of Alaska halibut fishing tides for Deep Creek halibut fishing.

Looking for timing for fly-outs by locale and species? We'd be happy to discuss options with you if you're looking for a certain locale / species to target. Feel free to call us, use the live help option when available, or use our online Information Request Form if you have any questions!

  • Black squares represent times where these fish are generally never present in fishable numbers.

  • Navy blue squares represent fringes of the runs where an angler may encounter a particular specie, but numbers generally do not support targeting fish at this time.

  • Royal blue squares mean that fish are present in fair to good numbers, quality of fishing during these times generally varies from year to year.

  • Red squares represent historical peak fishing periods ... these are highly recommended times and book early!
