Silver Salmon Fishing On The Kenai River

Silvers are acrobatic fish that make for some exciting sport fishing.

Silver salmon
are Alaska's
greatest sport

Fishing for Silvers is pure excitement. Once you’ve set the hook, get ready for a wild ride. Don’t be surprised when these lively and acrobatic fighters leap out of the water, and then splash back into the river as they furiously battle to shake your hook.

You’ll find that most Alaska Silver Salmon weigh approximately 8 to 12 lbs., but can grow up over 15 lbs. These are very aggressive and territorial fish, they will swallow up eggs, fly’s, and spinners alike. This means you can catch these magnificent fish so many different ways, from fly fishing, to trolling, or even casting spinners. In August these fish begin entering the rivers by the thousands, providing our anglers with an action-packed Alaska fishing trip!

The late run of Silvers presents a great opportunity for combo fishing trips for Rainbow Trout as well. Many customers opt for our combination fishing trip. One minute you’ll be releasing the Trout of a lifetime back into the glacial waters and the next you will be hanging on to a pole as a Silver Salmon crashes up through the water.

Silver Salmon fishing from August through October is always incredible and planning a trip during this time also means less crowds on the river too – an added bonus!

Fly-Out Silver Fishing
Late July to November

The Kenai and Kasilof Rivers aren’t the only place to catch Silvers. If you’re looking for a little more adventure, we can head to more remote locations such as Big River Lakes, the Kustatan River and Crescent Lake, just to name a few.

When you choose one of our guided fly-out fishing trips to remote Alaska, we’ll fly in a float plane to the remote location of your choice and give you an Aerial view of Alaska you won’t believe, AND catch some incredible fish as well!

Kenai & Kasilof River Silvers
August 1st to October 31st

Silver fishing on the peninsula begins in August. These fish come in on the tides and make their way up to the glacial feed lakes of the Kenai and Kasilof rivers. Whether down on the tidal flats or forested upper rivers these fish are a dynamic and fun experience!

Silver fishing is open until October 31st and one piece of advice we always give our friends is that Silver fishing in October is often overlooked. It’s an incredible time of year to come visit Alaska in search of Silver Salmon, because you often have the river to yourself and can bundle your trip with Rainbows or Steelhead!
