2024 Fishing Season is Coming!
February 11, 2024

This summer’s fishing season will begin soon! Come join us and fish the salt waters of Cook Inlet in hopes of catching a new world record king salmon. The current record weighed 97 pounds 4 ounces and was caught on May 17, 1985 by local resident Les Anderson. The mammoth Chinook was nearly 5 feet long and had an amazing 37.5 inch girth! This fish was caught several hours before it was weighed. Several kings weighing in excess of 90 pounds have been caught since the world record was caught but none have managed to equal or surpass the record. Could this be the year?

Temperatures this winter have been like a yoyo ranging from minus 0 to 30 above and we have had tons of snow. Today the sun is shinning and our temperature is around 35 degrees Fahrenheit. Are we having breakup in January? I doubt it but dreams can come true. Typically speaking, February is the coldest month of the year but only time will tell.
