The Chinook Salmon known locally as “Kings,” are the largest salmon species in Alaska growing up to nearly 100 pounds with the present world record rod and reel catch coming in at 97.4 pounds which was caught on the Kenai River. Commercially they've been caught at well over a 100 pounds. Each year thousands of anglers travel to the Kenai to chase the next world record. King salmon provide one of the hardest, longest lasting battles an angler can expect to encounter in fresh water.
Peak Kenai River King Salmon Runs
Each year there are two main runs of King Salmon that we guide. Late May and early june bring the first of the Kings. This run is generally smaller in numbers than the second run, but it is a good way to get your King Salmon without all the crowds. The second run is the largest in both numbers and size. The month of July is the best time to land one of these monster salmon in freshwater. We would suggest you booking your guided Kenai River King Salmon trip throughout the month of July. The season closes on July 31. The King Salmon bag limit is one per day or two for the season on the Kenai. We do guide anglers on other waters as well to supplement this regulation.
