BO's Fishes


Each season the Kenai River produces more trophy size King Salmon than any other river in the world. These consistently great fighting King Salmon average 40 to 60 pounds with many topping the scales at a whopping 80 pounds! According to The Alaska Department of Fish and Game, a 50 lb. King Salmon would be a trophy sized fish anywhere in Alaska, except the Kenai River. Here you have to catch a 75 lb. King to qualify and BO's can give you this opportunity! The first appearance of Kings in mid May is followed by overlapping runs of Silver, Sockeye and Pink Salmon, extending the season to early October. No doubt about it, anglers set their sights on a new world record here on the Kenai River!. Don't forget to check out our resources page

In addition to Kings you might also want to fish for: 

  • Silver Salmon

    •    Acrobatic & feisty, weighing in at 8-20 lbs, entering the Kenai late July, running through September into early October. 


  • Kasilof River Kings

    •    Aggressive biting, average 25-40 lb., most popular drift boat fisheries of Alaska. In addition the Kasilof River has great numbers of Silvers, Sockeye and a fall run of Steelhead Trout. 


  • Rainbow Trout

    •    Native Rainbows in the 8-12 pound class and each year world class Trout in the 18-20 pound class (catch & release is encouraged to assure these healthy fish return). 


  • Halibut

    •    World record 466 lb. Halibut taken August 1987, average 15-75 lb. with trophy catches of 100 to 200 pounds caught every day of the season, running May-September
