Salmon Run Fish Counts

Keeping up with changes in the strength of salmon runs is the mainstay of accurately planning your next fishing expedition. Most Alaskans realize that the saying "You should have been here yesterday!" was probably coined along the streambank of some popular fishing spot.

Although each salmon run has a definite period covering their arrival and availability, most runs tend to have periods of exceptional numbers entering and moving through the system. These are the times when the prudent angler will time his/her fishing activities to produce the best success. But even then, proper techniques, tackle and location can be important factors affecting the outcome of your efforts. We at AOJ hope our articles and reference information will provide the additional knowledge for making your outing one for the photo album.

Our information is provided in Two Flavors and originates from data collected by the Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game and the Alaska Outdoor Journal.

The Salmon Run Charts provide a graphical representation of our tabulated data for each of the runs we have information on.

The Kenai River Conditions Chart provides the angler with the latest water quality conditions on the river. Water clarity and temperature have profound effects on catch rates and are valuable variables to monitor when fishing the Kenai for kings.
