mid June.... fishing is ... odd. there are kings on the Kenai river weekends and Monday.... other days are closed. hard to fish from the banks. kings also maybe on Kasilof, Deep Creek, Anchor, & Ninilchik... depends on if they close the season early again. all have dolly varden and rainbow. both of which are more active later in the run (like when the reds come 3rd week of July). rainbows (and steelhead) have a bunch of rules.... boils down to mostly catch & release

there is also a first run of reds in the Kenai about that time too (bound for the Russian) typically they come through for a few days strong & you can get them if you know how... not like regular fishing. there are techniques.

sorry, but in a lotta ways June isn't that great for fishing. now, there are other things like grayling and pike but they are not Kenai fish (yet). might have some luck on the incoming tides at anchor, deep cr, etc with some sea run dollys & the occasional lost salmon... . trouble is during king season there is NO fishing allowed on any king stream unless it's the week end, Kasilof has special rules & may be open more.... they change every year. also check the slaughter hole in Homer... special rules & open all week (I think) (makes it a zoo)

the above link has a link to the fish & wildlife fish counter.... check that too

Anchor Point is a cool place... farthest west you can drive in the western hemisphere without taking a boat somewhere. good (primitive) campgrounds....showers, etc in town (2 miles), free camping on the beach, whiskey gulch is another, 5 miles from Anchor

oh yeah... the Russian.... closed for kings, no reds in June except for 1st run, mebby some dollys, mostly catch & release on the (giant) rainbow (better in July) (there eyes in the woods,,, do not keep an illegal fish)

silvers in late August until ice

humpies (pinks) in even years... not now

oh yeah,,, lower Russian Lake (2.5 miles walk),,, always some trout where the river starts, watch for the fookin bears

upper Russian is better for trout but 12 miles
