Fishing in Alaska in July

July sees the second run of King Salmon to Alaska , which is much larger than the first. Typically we see three times the number of fish that we do in the first run: between 50 - 80,000 fish.

Alaska Fishing in July

We fish the Kasilof and the Lower Kenai for King Salmon in July. The run lasts for the entire month, but fishing peaks in the last two weeks, so early reservations for this period of July are recommended.

Mid July is when the second run of Red Salmon starts to appear on the Kenai River. This is the larger run of Reds and can consist of more than one million fish. Typically we'll be catching Reds that weigh in between nine and thirteen pounds on the Middle Kenai. These fish are a lot of fun to catch, as they are full of energy and offer a challenging fight.

July on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska

The Alaskan summer peaks in July. Long days continue, with daytime temperatures reaching a very comfortable 80˚F (27˚C).

The forests have reached their fullest and the wildlife is making the best of the fat days of July. On the Kenai Peninsula , both black and brown bears are busy getting fish of their own in between snacking on local berries. Moose graze continuously on the abundance of greenery to nourish their newborn calves and eagles can be seen in nearly every corner of the Kenai Peninsula , on the prowl for fresh fish.

The Kenai Peninsula offers all of Alaska’s bounty.
