  1. The sockeye or “reds” as the locals call them were in full swing when I was there. You can see the run numbers right on the Alaska fish+game website, and this year had quite a bit more fish show up. You likely were not fishing for sockeye with eggs or any type of lures as they don’t eat like other salmon…their diet consists solely of zooplankton. The technique to catch them is to floss across the lanes they run in, which takes some practice. It’s mostly done from shore in water that’s about knee deep. The limit was 3/day in July, and we would limit out within an hour or so once we got the technique figured out. In August is when the Coho start to show up in numbers in the Kenai, and people will fish for those from boats using standard salmon bait and lures.
  2. I was there in mid-july of this year on the kenai. We had a king charter booked that turned into a sockeye charter once alaska fish and game closed the river to king fishing two days before the trip. It was not hard to figure out why, as the fishing pressure there was pretty insane.

  4. Hi All, just wanted to share the contents of a Mystery Tackle Box that I recently received as a gift. For those who don't know, it's a service that sends you a box each month containing "top quality baits from amazing brands". Below is a summary of what I received in a regular sized "Trout" box. The price of this box is $16.99/month and is supposed to contain around $25 in tackle. I added a picture of the contents of the box below also. 1. Yum Money Minnows 2 1/2" Shad 2. Catch Co. Minnow "pro series" 3. Rebel Tracdown Micro Crawfish 4. Road Runner Natural Science Glow Tube 5. Eagle One Bait Company Maggot Grub 6. Zoneloc Aberdeen Hooks size #4 My thoughts on the box- It was nice to receive this as a gift, however there is not much in this box that I would consider useful in fishing for trout around WNY. I feel like I could go to a local bait store and get the contents of this box for around $12. Does anyone else have thoughts on this? Have any other members here signed up and received these boxes in the past and had a different experience?
  5. People don't buy fishing licenses because there is nobody out asking for them. I have only seen the number of fisherman increase in local spots around the buffalo area, but haven't seen a warden in years. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
