Fishing Schedule

Kenai Peninsula Fish Availability

With fishing, timing is everything. Our guides have spent hundreds of days each year fishing their favorite spots. Whether it is on the river or out to sea, these captains know where the fish are and how to catch them. The following tables will improve your understanding of the peak fishing by species. May, June, July, August and September are all excellent fishing. As you can see, there are always plenty of fish to catch. You just need to decide what kind you want and when you want to come to Alaska. We can take it from there. Give Kenai Magic Lodge a call now to start planning your fishing adventure. 1-888-262-6644.
