Special King Salmon price
Alaska Salmon FishingWe fish the Kenai and Kasilof rivers for King Salmon plus we salt water troll for Kings. This photo is on the Kasilof River and some Kings it gave up to a couple of our guests. The Kenai has two runs of Kings early and late. Traditionally the Kenai has larger Kings than the Kasilof. Our experience is that the Kasilof often fishes better than the Kenai. When you fish with us we will ask you make the final decisiion of which river you want to fish after we give you all the information on how they are both fishing. When the sockeyes start running we often will fish for Kings and Sockeyes in the same trip.
Crooked Creek Retreat is well located, 15 min from the Kenai and 2 miles from the Kasilot River. King Salmon season starts May 15th, then the Sockeyes come in and next the Silvers. We can also take you on some great trout fishing adventures. Late season we often combine trout and Silver fishing trips on the middle Kenai. For fall fishing we switch to the Silvers, Steelhead and trout. Ther is great fly fishing on the Ninilchik, Anchor, and Deep Creek in addition to the Kenai Kasilof and our local lakes.
Our Kenai River Guides are graduates of the KPPC Kenai River Guide Academy and hold certificates. They have also completed all US Coast Guard course work and hold US Coast Guard licenses, Alaska Fish and Game guide licenses, first aide certificates, and have met all the requirements of the Kenai River Center. Our Kenai River guides are Alaskans and fish these rivers and lakes as long as the water is running.
They often also fish the Kasilof River and our main Kasilof River guide has fished the Kasilof for many years, few if any can out fish him on the Kasilof.

The King Salmon
Chinook Salmon - Oncorhynchus tshawytscha
The Chinook Salmon is the largest of all species of Salmon. A mature chinook averages 36 inches and 30 lbs. A three year old may weigh only about four pounds while a 6-7 year old may exceed 50 pounds. They have been known to exceed 120 lbs.
A Chinook starts it's life cycle in fresh water and returns to exactly the same spot to spawn. A female builds a nest, redd, in larger gravel with a good water flow. They will spend a few days to a month guarding the redd until they die. A smolt may spend as little as 3 months in the fresh water stream or as much as 1 to 2 years. They normally spend about 3-4 years in salt water and returning to spawn and die. Some will mature later at 6 -7 years, it is only this returning age group that has more females than males. Some yearling males return after 2 to 3 months in salt water or maturing in fresh water, these small bucks are often refered to as "Jacks". Females mature at an older age. The Chinook is the largest of the Salmon species.
Most rivers and streams have only one run King Salmon returning each year. On the Kenai Peninsula and early and late run return to the Kasilof and Kenai Rivers. Approximately 75,000 Kings are caught every year and over half of those are on the Kenai Peninsula.
There are two types of Chinook Salmon, the stream and ocean. Alaska Chinooks are of the stream type, they spend longer in the fresh water, are larger smolts and migrate to the North Central Pacific Ocean. The ocean type leave earlier for the salt water and spend their time maturing in coastal waters. These have mainly spring and summer runs. The stream type migrate much further and have runs in the fall and winter especially in the coastal waters off Alaska. Chinook Salmon are caught throughout the winter in Alaska.
