July is the busiest tourist month for the whole state, so expect large
crowds every where.
July is for freshwater anglers mainly interested Kenai
River King Salmon. Anglers spend the majority of their days on the Kenai
River, & chase halibut on Sunday & Monday when the river is closed
to boat fishing. The second run of Kenai Kings hit the river in late June,
& continues to build in numbers thru the last week in July. The total
return is 30,000 to 60,000 fish.
The fish average 45-55 pounds with 60-70 pound fish caught regularly.
Even though there are more fish in the July run than June, the success
rate is about the same due to more boats & anglers on the river. Another
factor in July is the commercial gill netting on the ocean intercepting
kings as they try to go into the river. Red salmon fishing from shore
is popular on the entire river. Halibut fishing is good & many boats
are running double trips daily compared to single trips in other months.
July: Kenai River Kings, & saltwater halibut, Majority
of time spent king fishing on river.
