Kenai River Fishing with BOOK and HOOK CHARTERS

Our work camping partners Kathy and Randy are from Texas. Randy is an avid fisherman and I have been spending time sockeye fishing on the Kenai river with him. While most days Randy catches his 3 fish limit every once in awhile a fish finds its way to my line and into the net. Nothing like fresh fish for dinner.
On Thursday Sue and I took a Chinook ( King Salmon ) fishing trip on the Kenai river with a local guide used by Beluga Lookout. Book and Hook charters. We spent the morning, 6am till noon along with two women from Anchorage chasing one of those prize trophy King's you read about. Fishing was slow and not many guides where having luck finding fish. But our guide Dave was not going home empty handed on this beautiful sunny day. He worked to holes on the river hard. We would float down a section of water and then head back up stream and float it again with him saying all a long the fish are in here. Debbie, one of the ladies from Anchorage was the first to hook a fish, a nice 55lb male king. Once it was landed and in the boat, Dave turned around and raced back to float over that hole again. I will say at this time with all excitement on the boat with her fighting the fish, I was surprised just how far we had traveled down stream before the fish was in the boat. Once we got to a place above the hole Dave turned the boat around and we started drifting down stream again. This time I hooked into a fish, a 42lb King female. Our Guide tried one more trip down the river with no luck and our day on the river came to and end. Thanks BOOK and HOOK, thanks Dave for such a memorable day of fishing. FISH ON
