early August, the Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus Kisutch),
return to the Alaska watersheds, and begin to replace
the King and Red Salmon as the star attraction.
Silver Salmon are every flyfishermen’s dream,
because they readily take to a fly, and are considered
excellent sport fish, characterized by their aggressive
behavior, spectacular leaps and line-peeling runs.
Silver Salmon average around ten pounds, and fish
in the low teens are common. Silver Salmon runs
in Alaska, are the least predictable of the salmon
runs in terms of timing. There are usually two
distinct pushes of Silvers on the Kenai River.
The peak of the first Silver Salmon run on the
Kenai, can fall anytime from late August to early
second run enters the river, the first week of
September and continues through the winter months.
While the runs in the Mat-Su valley, usually have
a smaller window ( mid August – September
). For this reason, D Ray Personal Guide Service
has the flexibility to track down the fish if necessary.
There are no limitations, other than the forces
of Mother Nature, that can prevent us from going
north ( Mat-Su Valley) or south (Kenai Peninsula), in pursuit of Silvers.
This enables you the client, the versatility to
go where the fish are! Reserve your seats now!
Space and availability are limited.
