Kenai River Fishing Season

The Kenai River fishing season for Chinook Salmon starts in May with the first run of King Salmon weighing in at an average of 35 pounds. We catch these fish in the salt waters of Cook Inlet as well as in our rivers. The second run of Kings weighing an average of over 50 pounds hits the river in July. This is also when the “hogs” are most likely to be found. The first run of sockeye salmon hits the Kenai River at the beginning of June. These meaty fighters weigh an average of 8 pounds and are considered by many to be the best eating of all the salmon.

The second run of sockeye salmon enters the Kenai in mid-July. These fish are larger weighing an average of 10 pounds. The acrobatic silver salmon begin entering the Kenai River the end of July and are here well into the fall months. Pound for pound, these fish are considered by many to be the best fighters of all the salmon. Kenai fishing charters for halibut include several choices. Homer, Deep Creek, Seward, and Whittier all fish the waters of Cook Inlet. The average sized halibut weighs in at around 45-60 pounds but there are many fish caught that weigh in excess of 100 pounds.

Our season is short and space is limited. Book your Alaska fishing trip early so you can secure the dates you want. Inquire now by calling us at (907) 262-2671 or email us directly at

Best dream Alaska experience. Amazing host Ms Mel and her staff are so friendly helpful and caring. All guests treated like family. Very relaxing and all around a dream gorgeous location. Krogs Kamp represented their state and the Kenai river area with so much joy and love. I will recommend the adventure to all my friends.

Right on the river, view is awesome. One evening a Moose just pops up out of the river and walks past us as we sat around a fire. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

Mel, Bob, and Eric opened their lodge for one more last minute stay just before closing up for the winter. Not only were they welcoming and hospitable, but I learned a lot just by listening to what they had to say and teach me. Although we arrived late in the season, the very next morning we pulled a hefty 14 lb silver salmon right off the bank of the Kenai per their instruction...extremely knowledgeable as evidenced by the trophy salmon hanging throughout their house. I could not have paid for a better opportunity.

Amazing location and property. My boyfriend and I stayed at Krog's Kamp for 8 days and had the most amazing time! Mel took care of everything for all our adventures and Josh was there to help with all our needs. The property is beautiful and being on the Kenai River, we were able to fish anytime we wanted. They also provided all the gear for fishing off-site. I would highly recommend this location and I am looking forward to returning next summer.

I got to stay at Krog's Kamp a few years ago as part of a dream vacation that was organized for me after going on disability. Mel donated our lodging for one week, and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The staff was always right there if you needed anything,and everyone was treated as family. We got to catch a 68.7 pound king when the guide took us to a spot Mel suggested. We also did a fly-in to a spot where we got to watch a brown bear mere feet away while we fished for sockeye. Mel set it all up. Anything you want to do, she can help so you just get to enjoy your time.
