Before The Rooster Crows
No doubt your grandpa always told you to get an early start in the morning for the best fishing. And there is no better place on the Kenai Peninsula to prove that than a king salmon fishing drift boat trip on the Kasilof River.
Fish arrive on each of the two high tides each day, and one of those is always late at night or early in the morning. With fresh kings filling the river on these late tides, the early bird gets the worm so to speak. Hitting the water at the crack of dawn allows our drift boats to be in the right spots when the fish start hitting. This drift trip is special because the river is too shallow for power boats, so the only company you will have are other anglers in drift boats too.
The Serwa husband and wife team didn't miss their wake up call and it paid off with a limit of ocean-bright fish (one per person per day) for the effort of getting an early start on this June morning. This was their first trip to Alaska.
