Don’t tell anybody, but the Kasilof River King salmon fishing is a secret that many locals would like to keep to themselves. Most anglers focus on fishing the Kenai River during the July King salmon run, so the Kasilof River late run has passed under the radar for years.

Kasilof River

Located only 15 miles from the famous Kenai River, the Kasilof River is somewhat of an afterthought. If it were located anywhere else, it would be known as a fantastic King salmon fishery.


The Kasilof River has two distinct runs of king salmon, in addition to a healthy sockeye run, and a exceptional run of silver salmon. It also supports resident rainbow trout and dolly varden. Something it has over on the Kenai is a substantial return of steelhead in the spring and fall.

There's a reason I keep booking this steelhead fishing trip!
Second time I’ve done this particular trip. The steelhead run was awesome! The food was even better than the first time, which is hard to imagine, and our guide is the best there is! If catching big fish is your thing I highly recommend booking through Outdoors International.

I expected big trout on this trip based on all the stories I've read over the years, and I was not disappointed! I broke my own personal best rainbow trout record at least SIX times on this trip, with the biggest being a 16 pound beauty.

I will be going again soon!
