King Salmon - Other than Kenai River
Alex and Linda Happer traveled a long way to visit Alaska. They are working folks that saved for some time to come to Alaska. Alex said its the only place he ever wanted to visit. (Must be the similarity with glaciers, good fishing and scenic beauty.) They are both very pleased they they traveled the 11,000 miles to sample what Alaska has to offer.
One thing on their itinerary was a drift boat king fishing trip on the Kasilof River. And although Alex is the fisherman in the clan, the old adage rings true - When it comes to Alaska king salmon fishing its better to be lucky (or female) than good. Linda had the lucky rod on that last day of the king season and what a catch it was. The July king run produces some very nice sized fish but fish exceeding 50 pounds for this river are true trophies aptly recognized by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game as an exceptional catch and awarded a State Trophy Certificate. This was her first king salmon and its one that won't be forgotten.
