While the strength of incoming schools fluctuates, sometimes hourly, sockeye salmon are still the best bet for anglers on the Kenai and Kasilof rivers.
Whether dipnetting or fishing with a rod and reel the targeted species right now is sockeye salmon, said assistant area management biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Jason Pawluk.
It has been a strange season for sockeye salmon, Pawluk said. The groups swimming through the Kenai River have been spotty, appearing in large numbers for only two to four hours at a time.
