Silver Salmon

In 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.

Most Alaskan 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 September.

The 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.
